The Oregon Society of Mayflower Descendants meets twice a year. One meeting is in late April or early May, the other in November. They are usually held in the Portland area, or in Corvallis. Meetings normally are luncheons, held on a Saturday, with a speaker.

Our next Mayflower meeting will be held May 2, 2015 at Hayden's Lakefront Grill in Tualatin. Arrival time is 12:00 noon. The meeting will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m. Our program will be Heraldry, Armorial Linages of Early American Families. Our presenter will be Carol Campbell, a dedicated genealogical researcher, who will draw from her extensive knowledge of the subject.
