Please join us on Friday, January 5th, 2018, at 1:00pm at the former Village Hall on Main Street in the Village of Lisle, New York, for a historical marker unveiling ceremony. (Bad weather location will be the Christian Fellowship Church located at 2085 River St in Lisle, New York. Please refer to our Facebook page for location information on the day of the unveiling.) On the 100 year anniversary, the Preservation Association of the Southern Tier will be placing the historical marker in commemoration of the location of the first vote to be cast by a woman in New York State. Women were granted the right to vote for the first time in New York in November of 1917, and the “Ladies of Lisle” eagerly exercised their newly granted right for the first time on January 5th, 1918.
Planned events include a brief ceremony inside the Old Village Hall at 1:00pm with remarks by various speakers, a history presentation by the Town Historian, and a reenactment of Florence B Chauncey (the first woman to vote in New York State) casting her vote. The Lisle Free Library will be open all day with posters on display as well as pictures and articles about the first vote. A refreshments reception will be held at the Lisle Free Library directly after the unveiling. Also, the French’s Distillery (located on the corner of Main Street and Walker Avenue) will be selling a commemorative whiskey in honor of the “Ladies of Lisle”. You are welcome to come by to sample their whiskey!
See you there!
