News & Events


The Minnesota Pilgrim News is the Official Publication of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Minnesota. Our newsletter is published three times a year. Currently members receive the newsletter in the mail or by email. To become a greener and more cost effective Society, we will be posting our Minnesota Pilgrim Newsletter on this site, here.

The Minnesota Pilgrim News is filled with information and articles about the Society, upcoming events, and our Governor's Corner. If you have any letters or articles you would like to submit, please contact: James R. Mirick, News Editor, at:

It's often the case that our more elderly members may become homebound near the end of their lives, and we may not hear of their passing. If you are aware of the death of a Society member, please let us know so that they can be recognized.

If there are any problems with this website, change of address, questions, or notices, please refer to our Contact page.
