Our Celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the State Society

 

WA Mayflower Society 100th Anniversary Celebration

On Sunday March 25th, 2012, 95 members and guests celebrated our 100th Anniversary at a special Annual Meeting held at the Tacoma Yacht Club, Tacoma, Washington.

Our honored guest was the new Governor-General of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, Bruce Campbell MacGunnigle, who spoke about the history of the General Society, and provided brief biographies of four original Pilgrims.

The dinner was enhanced with a special "Centennial Cake", along with photos of members grouped by their ancestor. As usual, John Howland had the largest turnout.

Special thanks to the Hulls for providing the Society access to the beautiful location--and the delicious food. The weather cooperated nicely, and with the great location, a wonderful time was had by all. We look forward to another 100 years!
