Board Approves Bylaw Changes

Jane Schleinzer      The Society of Mayflower Descendents in the State of Illinois is working on getting a commemorative coin made for the 400th anniversary of the pilgrims landing in Plymouth. To get a commemorative coin issued, a bill has to be passed in the House of Representatives and in the Senate. We need your help in getting these bills passed. Please ask your Representative and Senators to co-sponsor a bill that Congressman Foster will be introducing next Congress to commission a commemorative coin in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the pilgrims. Your Representatives and Senators can contact Gary Timmins in Congressman Foster’s office regarding any additional information. You can look up who your Representative is by going to and entering your zip-code. If you have any questions, please contact me. I thank you in advanced for contacting your Representative to co-sponsor this bill.

     At the annual November meeting the members approved certain amendments to the bylaws of The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Illinois.
