Help the Mayflower Set Sail on New Year's Day 2020!     We Are Getting Ready for a Parade!

Join the General Society of Mayflower Descendants as we usher in the 400th Anniversary of the Voyage of the Mayflower by helping us set sail down Colorado Blvd in Pasadena, CA on New Year's Day 2020!  Our application has been  'conditionally approved' for the 2020 Rose Parade®.  We are confident that we will receive the official invitation to place a float in the parade in early 2019.   Consequently, we need to start raising funds now for this once in a lifetime event.

Your donation will help us to put a beautifully designed and decorated float in the Rose Parade in Pasadena on January 1, 2020.  The float will tell the story of the voyage of the Mayflower, the Pilgrims and the founding of this nation in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620.   This in an educational outreach to the entire nation to tell this story we hold so dear. 

If you would like to participate in addition to donating for this project with the members of the California chapter of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, please go to the California Mayflower Society website to find out more information and let us know of your interest.  There are various ways to participate, so please check it out at:  http://camayflower.org/

We thank you for your generous donation and your support of all of the activities celebrating this monumental anniversary of the landing of our ancestors on the shores of Plymouth in 1620.   From this anniversary event on January 1st, 2020 through the entire year, there will be numerous events around the United States, England and Holland celebrating the anniversary.   Please contact the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, for more information:   https://www.themayflowersociety.org/
