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.
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 17, 2018, at the Bloomington Country Club in Bloomington, Illinois.
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.
Our program at this luncheon will be a private docent-guided tour of the David Davis Mansion. This beautifully restored, nineteenth-century estate in Bloomington, Illinois, tells the story of Judge David Davis, whose influence on Abraham Lincoln's legal and political career was crucial to President Lincoln's success, and sarah Davis, whose influence on her husband shaped his political career and their lives.
