Agnes Scott Lewis Annual Award Dinner. The League of Women Voters of Geneva will honor Kim Aliperti with the League's Agnes Slosson Lewis Award at its annual dinner Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 5:30 PM at the Lochland School in Geneva.

The award is given in honor of one of the region's most active suffragists and a founder of the League of Women Voters of Geneva. First given in 1960, the award recognizes women for leadership ability and inspiration to others, as well as broad interest in the community and good government.

Kim has been dedicated to serving Geneva in many capacities over the years, not only as a business entrepreneur contributing to our economy and quality of life but especially by her community involvement and leadership. She served on the Board of the Geneva Boys and Girls Club from 2008 to 2016, and as Board President from 2014 to 2016. She is currently a Board member of Geneva Community Projects, and of FLX Culinary Bounty. She has served on the Board of the Geneva City School District's Budget Advisory Committee and the Bank of the Finger Lakes Economic Development Committee, and as a Geneva Reads volunteer.

Kim has been a member of the League of Women Voters of Geneva for over 15 years, serving as a Board member and Past President. Other volunteer activities include participation in the League's Court Watching project, and sponsorship of annual League fundraising events through Billsboro Winery. Kim currently serves as a member of the Geneva Town Board. She says that the one thing that was very important to set her on a course of both service and interest in good government was her time in the Peace Corps from 1992 to 1996 in Tunisia.

The speaker for the evening will be Denise DeLucia of the National Women's Rights Park. She will be speaking on the 1848 Women's Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, NY, and local Suffragists.

The cost of the catered dinner is $30, payable by cash or check at the door, but seating is limited and reservations should be made by contacting Marty Davis by emailing her at: membershipLWVgeneva@gmail.com on or before June 14th.
