ark the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims on the ground where it all took place, in Plymouth, Massachusetts. We will walk the streets, ship decks and cemeteries telling the stories of those 104 souls that arrived in the winter of 1620 and the profound legacy they left for us. We will go to the Forefather’s Monument, the best kept 81’ tall solid granite secret in Plymouth, and to remarkable sites on Cape Cod where Richard Bourne planted churches including the historic Mashpee Meetinghouse that began in 1670 and whose Native congregation continues to propagate the Gospel today.
You will also participate in the “Official Maritime Salute” sponsored by the Massachusetts State Commission. Scheduled activities include musical entertainment, vendors, educational tents, food trucks, maritime parade, military presentations and a New England Lobster bake! Our friends Dr. Paul Jehle of the Plymouth Rock Foundation and Jerry Perera of Leyden Preservation Trust are also planning great events at the Forefather’s Monument, Veterans Hall and along the waterfront! It’s going to be a week to remember!
