SAN DIEGO COLONY MEETINGS – Our Colony gathers at least three times a year for a luncheon and program. 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.
MAYFLOWER 2020 COMMEMORATION – Just two short years from now, we will be marking the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower and the founding of Plymouth Colony. This is an exciting opportunity to commemorate the Pilgrims and the Mayflower landing, as well as to share their inspirational story. As we draw closer to 2020, there will be opportunities where we will need financial support. Whether you have a Mayflower ancestor or not, we are asking for your help to make our celebration events a reality.
STANLEY LONDON Nautical Gifts has partnered with the San Diego Mayflower Colony to help raise money to fund our local events by offering replica maritime instruments used during Mayflower times. Each instrument is engraved to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage. These instruments make great gifts as well as timeless keepsakes which will help our Mayflower Colony achieve its goals. To make a purchase, simply visit the STANLEY LONDON website via the link on our ‘LINKS’ page.
