Mr. Fulton, I am a newcomer to the site and I haven't learned how to use it at all but let me try to answer:  Yes the 400th Anniversary of the Landing of the Mayflower will be celebrated with all our hearts.  England and Holland are participating with their own contributions for example.  The Mayflower Society is very much involved and so are each of the state societies.  My own state, California will have a Mayflower float in the Rose Parade to acquaint people with the event coming up.  (Volunteers are pasteing pedals on the float and walking with the float dressed as Pilgrims), etc. etc.  I don't know yet what other state Mayflower chapters are doing but excitement is running high!!!

Thank you.

I just looked at the Society webpage for details of joining. The cost for a preliminary review was increased at the beginning of the year (it used to be without cost). I could not find the application fee anywhere; I recall seeing it before. I have also heard the review and approval of an application can be lengthy.
It can indeed be lengthy.  It depends on who is doing the reviewing.

Hey, Barbara, welcome to WikiTree and thank you for bringing us up to speed on Mayflower celebrations. California (my home state) does me proud...isn't it mind bogging that in 400 short years, Mayflower influences (as well as others, of course) stretch from "sea to shining sea."

I'll get off the grandstand now...
