St. Lawrence County Historical Association reopens to public
CANTON – The St. Lawrence County Historical Association (SLCHA) reopened Tuesday, June 30.
All visitors must maintain safety guidelines, such as wearing face coverings, practicing social distancing, and following agency traffic flow instructions.For those planning to do research in the Archives room, call for an appointment as we do not have space for multiple visitors and still maintain social distancing.
Donations are sought for SLCHA’s Annual Summer “Virtual” Auction, an online-only event in August, date to be determined. Items can be new or used, must be in excellent condition (except, perhaps, for some antiques), and should have a minimum price of $25.
Donate anything that will sell well, such as jewelry, gift certificates, recent cell phone models, yoga classes, gift baskets, golf lessons, etc. Contributions can be dropped off by Thursday, July 30, at 3 E. Main St., Canton (back door) during open hours ONLY (see last paragraph). Wear a face mask.
For those interested in making donations, becoming new members or renewing memberships online, the association has added a PayPal button to our home page and our Campaign page. After indicating the amount, just type the reason in the message box, such as “senior (etc.) membership,” “for operations,” or “for endowment.” A list of the membership levels is on the home page for easy reference.
SLCHA’s new exhibit “Early Lighting,” will open Saturday, Aug. 1, at 10 a.m.
This will be the topic of the Wednesday, Oct. 15, Brown Bag Lunch at noon by Carlton Stickney, curator of this exhibit and Stockholm Town Historian.
