We publish the Illinois Mayflower News newsletter twice per year for our membership. Recent copies of our newsletter may be viewed here.
Our Fall Luncheon and Annual Meeting is typically held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, so that we may celebrate the First Thanksgiving with our Mayflower cousins. This year our Fall Luncheon and Annual Meeting will be held on November 23, 2019, at the Glen Club in the northern Chicago suburbs.
We conduct Society business at this brief meeting and induct new members via a New Member Welcome Ceremony.
All members are invited to attend, along with their guests and children, as well as prospective members who have started the membership process.
Invitations are sent via postal mail to members about three weeks before the luncheon and reservations are required.
Please join the Illinois Mayflower Society at Illinois Heritage Weekend September 20-22, 2019 in East Peoria, IL.
Registration forms and more details can be found here.
The New York Mayflower Society’s Annual Debutante Ball is held the first Friday of November each year in New York City.
All members of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants and their friends and family are invited to attend, as well as all former debutantes and their families, as we celebrate the presentation of this year’s debutantes.
All Mayflower Society Members may sponsor the presentation of a debutante who is a bloodline female descendant between the ages of 18-24. Most debutantes are presented in their first year of college.
Please contact the New York Mayflower Society for more information, or to sponsor a debutante.
