The 1918 Flu Epidemic in St. Lawrence County will be the topic discussed at the next Brown Bag Lunch Series talk hosted by the St. Lawrence County Historical Association on Thursday, Oct. 18 at noon. This ad appeared in the Canton Commercial Advertiser, Oct. 15, 1918. An editor went so far as to say, "If persons do cough or sneeze, call them down and do it severely. They deserve it and know it and no offense will be given." Learn more about the 1918 Flu Epidemic when Bryan Thompson speaks at the St. Lawrence County Historical Association.
