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.

Our Guest Speaker for this meeting will be author and writer, Donna Watkins.

Summer 2023 Events
Saturday May 20th is the date planned date for our Spring Colony Meeting. The time and venue have yet to be decided.
Our San Diego Colony has been invited to participate in the June 2023 “La Mesa Flag Day Parade”. Please consider joining us as we walk and wave to thousands of energetic folks along the relatively short route. Look for more details at our next Colony Meeting and in the Winter “Pilgrim News”. Mayflower Members and their families are welcome and encouraged to participate and wear Pilgrim-period attire if they have it -OR- your parade ‘comfy-civies’ will do very nicely.
We last marched in the La Mesa Parade in 2019 and ‘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!
Our Annual Compact Day Meeting/Luncheon
This luncheon is being planned for November 2023. San Diego Colony’s annual Compact Day Meeting/Luncheon will feature a guest speaker and always interesting camaraderie with our Mayflower ‘cousins’ and friends. As with all of our Colony Meetings, anyone interested in Mayflower, Pilgrim, or U.S. History are welcome to attend.
