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 noon October 31, 2015, at Hayden's Lakefront Grill in Tualatin. A form to register for this luncheon will be sent in the fall to members or can be printed from this website. All members, prospective members and friends are welcome to attend. This will be our Compact Day meeting and we plan to feature the youth of the Mayflower, past and present. Some of our members are planning to come dressed as Mayflower pilgrims. Why don't you?
