Zoom discussion on Name Change

Dear Members,
As part of our ongoing efforts to have a robust discussion with the membership regarding a potential name change for the society, we are hosting an online discussion opportunity on Zoom Thursday,
January 28th at 7:00 pm.

This will be the first of several opportunities to discuss this issue with the goal of taking a vote later in the  spring or early this summer.

We would also remind all members that you can weigh in, any time, on the discussion boards in the members forum on our website, pilgrimjohnhowlandsociety.org. There are complete directions for accessing the discussion boards in your December 2020 Howland Quarterly.

We are eager to hear from all members in this important discussion. We hope to see as many as can participate, on Thursday.

In memory of Bradford Gorham

THE PJHS IS DEEPLY SADDENED BY THE DEATH OF OUR PRESIDENT, BRADFORD GORHAM.

Brad was first elected President of the Society in 1999, and he served until his death on Oct 19, 2015.  He orchestrated the building and sailing of our shallop, The Elizabeth Tilley, from Plymouth to Augusta, ME, following the same route our ancestor John Howland would have taken. He was an affable and respected leader of the society who was proud of his family history, even writing a book "John and Elizabeth Howland PIlgrims on the Kennebec" last year.  Our sympathies are with his wife Christine and the entire Gorham family.  For more information on his life and information on services, please read his Obituary.
