The Mayflower Society House will be featured for the next four years in the Plymouth, MA Thanksgiving Day Parade. This parade has received an award for being one of the best parades in the country. After the cost of the GSMD float, all proceeds will go to the Meetinghouse. If we find that many members want to come to Plymouth for Thanksgiving and ride in floats, we will look into extending our contract with the event.
To sign up, please download the participation form below. Please mail this and a check made out to "GSMD" to Kathy Liolios, GSMD, P.O. Box 3297 Plymouth, MA 02361-3297.
