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.

This year the Illinois Society is proud to host the national meeting of the General Board of Assistants of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, which will convene at 9:00 a.m., Saturday, September 8, 2018, at the Pheasant Run Resort, 4051 East Main Street, St. Charles, Illinois.


Illinois will welcome members and General Society officers at a welcome reception which will include entertainment and a cash bar on Friday evening. A cocktail reception followed by a banquet will be held on Saturday evening with entertainment about the Spoon River Anthology. The Illinois Society encourages all GBOA attendees and their guests to join them for business meetings, training, tours and socializing.


This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and reconnect with Mayflower family and to be involved in the business and decision-making of our great Society. All General Society officers are urged to attend. If the elected or nominated Deputy Governor General (DGG) or Assistant General (AG) of your Society is unable to attend, your Society board may authorize “Acting” Officers for this meeting only. If this is the case within your Society, your Secretary must forward the names of the Acting Officers to the Secretary General before the meeting. Acting Officers will not be seated without this authorization.


Registered Mayflower Society members or family are welcome to attend the meeting as silent observers and to participate in tours.
