Women of Lisle; First to Vote in New York State on January 5th, 1918!!!

Special day honoring the Ladies of Lisle, the first women to vote in New York State! A historical marker was unveiled in the old Lisle Village Hall exactly 100 years after that first vote. Quite interesting, that first vote was whether or not to keep Lisle a Dry Town! The women voted yes! I wonder what the vote would be today if they concerned the consumption of wine! After the dedication we went over to see a quite impressive exhibit at the Lisle Library and then we went down the street to the French Distillery to toast the woman’s right to drink, excuse me, I mean the woman’s right to vote!   (Andy Reistetter; Facebook Post with 30 Pics; 1-6-18)
