SAN DIEGO COLONY MEETINGS – Our Colony gathers at least three times a year for a meal and program meeting. A member or guest speaker often provides a discussion of topics related to the Pilgrims or American History. In November, we hold our annual Compact Day Program and Luncheon. Additional trips or outings may be planned that may be of special interest.
