The Oregon Society of Mayflower Descendants is organized under the authority of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants and is made up of persons with proven Mayflower lineage. It is among member societies representing all fifty states in the Union, the District of Columbia, Canada and Europe. The purpose of this Society is to honor and preserve the memory of our Mayflower Pilgrim ancestors who landed in America in 1620 and founded Plymouth Colony.

The Society meets twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall for a luncheon consisting of a short business meeting reporting on the activities of the Society followed by a program of interest to Mayflower Society members and prospective members.

The next state meeting of the Oregon Society of Mayflower Descendants will be held November 17, 2018 – Hayden’s Lakefront Grill, 8187 Tualatin-Sherwood Rd., Tualatin,, OR.
Social Hour begins at 11:30 a.m. with seating for lunch at noon.

This will be our Compact Day Meeting and we look forward to welcoming Tom Henderson, journalist, recalling “Quiet Thoughts from a Library in Wales.”

Mr. Henderson has for forty years served as reporter and editor for various northwest newspapers and currently writes for the News-Register, covering government and social issues. He and his wife recently visited the British Isles where at the Gladstone Library in Wales he spent several compelling research hours. Some of what he discovered there will help to inform his talk. Mr. Henderson will discuss current issues in America vis a vis John Winthrop’s famous 1630 sermon aboard the Arbella as he sailed toward a new Massachusetts Bay Colony.

A registration form will be in the fall issue of the Oregon Pilgrim and will be posted on our website. All members, prospective members, family and friends are welcome.

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