    Traditionally we hold two statewide luncheon meetings each year. Our Spring Meeting is held on the first Saturday in May, and our “Compact Day” meeting is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving each November.

    The Compact Day meetings have been held in recent years at the Commonwealth Club in Richmond, whereas our Spring meeting is usually held elsewhere in the state, such as Williamsburg, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Natural Bridge, Strasburg, and Norfolk. From time to time our members also hold regional meetings and outings.

    The varied programs at our meetings are designed to help educate and remind our members about “The Pilgrim Example,” to recall the sacrifices and struggles of our ancestors who succeeded in laying the foundation for the American freedoms we all cherish. To quote from our “Pilgrim Pledge,” we study our Pilgrim ancestors’ lives, deeds, faith, courage and character, and draw inspiration therefrom.

    Here is the Pilgrim Pledge that all our "cousins" read in unison at the start of each of our luncheon meetings:
