JUNIORS BEING ADVOCATES FOR THE NH MAYFLOWER SOCIETY
As Junior Chair, I have been inspired by our Juniors. All of us are proud as our Juniors reach that age when they can apply and receive our scholarships. We know that they are entering the adult world with a historical foundation of our Mayflower ancestors and society. It gives us joy when we see our younger Juniors show their passion and pride in doing a school project,entering and winning our essay contests, and engaging and sharing their knowledge with others.
Please enjoy the included pictures of our Juniors.

Pilgrim Book Project
Our New Hampshire Society's 400th Anniversary commemoration project was the "Pilgrim Books" in which our members were going to volunteer to read seven chosen children's books about the Mayflower in library story hours across the state of New Hampshire. Until we can do this inside libraries again (after COVID rules have changed) we decided to video some members reading some of these books. Please share the stories with anyone with children who may enjoy hearing them.
