Visit Seneca Falls & Long Island during 2017—New York’s suffrage centennial!
HISTORIC MARKERS IN NEW YORK STATE: Long Island, New York has been busy during the state’s 2017 suffrage centennial. One upcoming event is the recognition of the installation of a historic marker honoring Lillian Devere, suffrage activist from Lake Ronkonkoma on Saturday, May 13, 2017, 11 a.m. at the American Legion 155, 115 Church Street, Lake Ronkonkoma, NY. A William G. Pomeroy Foundation Marker will be permanently placed at the American Legion Post #155 to honor Devere under the auspices of the Lake Ronkonkoma Heritage Association. This is one of over 300 historic markers the Pomeroy Foundation has funded in New York State.
The American Association of University Women, the Islip area branch, established the location of the start of a proposed Long Island suffrage trail. On April 1, 2017, AAUW Vice-President Nancy Mion welcomed AAUW members, local dignitaries and Coline Jenkins, great-great-granddaughter of Elizabeth Cady Stanton to the festivities at the Shoreham Village Hall to celebrate.
