The Oregon Society of Mayflower Descendants meets twice a year. One meeting is in late April or early May, the other in November. They are usually held in the Portland area, or in Corvallis. Meetings normally are luncheons, held on a Saturday, with a speaker.

The next State Society meeting will be Sunday, May 6, 2018 at Hayden's Lakefront Grill in Tualatin. Plan to arrive at about 1:30 p.m. to register. The luncheon will begin at 2:00 p.m. Please note the change in our usual meeting time. Our program will be presented by re-enactors Mike and Mary Hutchens who will tell the story of the Pittocks (of Pittock mansion) who crossed the Oregon Trail and helped found the City of Roses. Mary will portray Georgiana Pittock while Mike will play her chauffeur. The two have been actors for many years and are well known for their enchanting performances. A registration form will be in the spring issue of the Oregon Pilgrim and will be posted on our website. All Mayflower Society members, prospective members, family and friends are invited.

The Board of Assistants meets prior to the luncheon in the board room from 10:00 a.m.-12 noon.
