NICKERSON FAMILY ASSOCIATION ANNUAL REUNION
SEPTEMBER 11, 12, 13, 2015
Our annual reunion will be in Plymouth, Massachusetts this year. The 400th anniversary of the Mayflower landing on Plymouth Rock will be celebrated in 2020, a short five years away. There will be many events planned leading up to this national observance. The Nickerson Family will start things off with a reunion to remember. Beginning on Friday, September 11th, our first event will be a visit to the Mayflower replica in Plymouth. It is easy to find right in the Harbor adjacent to Plymouth Rock. If you have never been or not visited recently, you really want to check this tiny ship out. In the evening, we will enjoy refreshments aboard the Pilgrim Belle while we cruise the harbor.
All Saturday events will be held at Plymouth Plantation. Coffee hour will be followed by our annual meeting. Lunch will be served in the same room. The afternoon will be free time for you to visit the plantation or a number of other sites in Plymouth of interest. The evening will find us back at the plantation for dinner and a visit from Stephen Hopkins, a Mayflower passenger.
On Sunday, we will be back on Cape Cod at the Nickerson home in Chatham for our annual picnic on the grounds of the Nickerson House and the Caleb Nickerson House. In addition to picnic fare, we will enjoy open hearth cooking get by Maureen Leavenworth.
Plan now to join your cousins for the weekend of September 11,12, and 13, 2015. Registration will be available on this Web site as well as a paper form sent to members by mail in late spring.
