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.

Seating for the next State Society meeting will begin at 12:00 noon on Saturday, June 4, 2016 at Hayden's Lakefront Grill in Tualatin. Our guest speaker will be Caleb Johnson, the well known Pilgrim historian and writer. Mr. Johnson will discuss some of his recent findings during his latest trip to England. A form to register for this luncheon will be sent in the spring to members. The registration form can be printed here. All members, prospective members, family and friends are welcome to attend. The Board of Assistants meeting will be held at 10:30 A.M. in the board room, and any interested members are invited to attend.
