SAN DIEGO COLONY MEETINGS – Our Colony typically 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.

HUZZAHS!! Our San Diego Colony has been selected to participate in the June 3rd, 2023 “La Mesa Flag Day Parade”. Please consider joining us with your family as we walk and wave to thousands of energetic folks along the relatively short route. Look for more details at our May Colony Meeting and in the Spring “Pilgrim News”. Mayflower Members and their families are ALL WELCOME and encouraged to participate in either Pilgrim-period attire if they have it -OR- your favorite parade ‘comfy-civies’ will do VERY NICELY.
We last marched in the La Mesa Parade in 2019 and really ‘HAD A BALL’!
Possible IN-PERSON Fall 2023 “PLIMOTH Colony/PATUXET Village – WEST” outreach event in San Diego’s beautiful Balboa Park. Our event last Fall was fun for us and very well received by the public.
– Watch for it!
