– WHERE WERE YOU on January 1st, 2020?
Many of our local, state and national Mayflower Society members were in Pasadena, CA, to witness our Rose Parade Float, “The Voyage of Hope”, for it’s 6-mile trip down Colorado Blvd. We hope that you were able to experience it first-hand as well, or at least to see it on TV. Our float was just the beginning of the Mayflower/Pilgrim 400-year Anniversary celebrations to take place this year in the U.S., U.K and The Netherlands. We hope you are able to participate at some level, and be interested enough to learn about the Pilgrim Separatist’s motivations and sacrifices in coming to this land.
