Are you a Mayflower passenger descendant? If so, join us in celebrating the voyage of the Mayflower in 1620 as we celebrate the 400th anniversary.
Along with the Cascade Colony in Medford, we operate under the auspices of the Oregon State Mayflower Society with whom we meet twice a year — in November and May — for a luncheon and business meeting.
Mt. Hood Colony members gather for a luncheon meeting and program at lease two times a year, spring, and fall. Please contact us if you would like to attend. Prospective members, spouses and guests are welcome.
Definition of a Mayflower Colony
Questions have arisen recently about what is a Mayflower Colony and why do we have them? I hope this message clarifies the issue. The purpose of the creation of a colony shall be for the geographical convenience of its members and for no other purpose.
New and existing Oregon Mayflower Members have the option to join either the Cascade Colony in Medford, or the Mount Hood Colony in Portland. If they prefer, they may become a member at large. They are however, welcome to attend our state or any colony meeting. Members of a colony pay their respective minimal colony dues. Members at large are exempt from colony dues.
The state society holds two meetings a year but colonies hold two to three meetings a year for the purpose of education and sociability. Seldom do you attend a meeting and not meet a new cousin. Thank you.

Lt. Governor Mt Hood Colony
