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.

The next State Society meeting will be held Saturday, May 13, 12:00 noon, at Hayden's Lakefront Grill in Tualatin. The program will be a vignette performed by Mark and Donna Hinds about some actual Oregon Trail Pioneers. A registration form will be in the 2017 spring issue of the Oregon "Pilgrim" and can also be downloaded here. Members, prospective members and their families and friends are welcome to attend.

The Board of Assistants will meet in the board room between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon.
