2023 Annual Meeting Planning Information
2023 ANNUAL MEETING PLANNING INFORMATION
DUXBURY MASSACHUSETTS, AUGUST 4-6, 2023.
The 2023 DELANO KINDRED Annual Meeting and Reunion will be held in Duxbury, MA, August 4-6 at the Alden House Historic Site (AHHS). Although the Delano Kindred Annual Meeting itself will be separate, all other activities will be held jointly with the Alden Kindred and the Pilgrim Peter Brown Society on the AHHS grounds. As a result, we will not be needing a hotel to be a "home base". We have not blocked any hotel rooms anywhere; all attendees are free to make whatever accommodations they prefer. There are some suggestions at the end of this Post.
Delano Kindred members must register on this site to attend our Annual Meeting. Registration for the Reunion part of the meeting can be done either via the Alden Kindred (if you are an Alden Kindred member) or here on this site along with your Annual Meeting registration.
In addition to the registration itself, your registration fee includes everything except the Chowderfest, the Bradford House Breakfast, and the Bradford House Tour; those are optional events at a nominal addional cost.
The presentation by Rev. Soule on Saturday is titled "Prosecutions for Fornication in Plymouth Colony 1620-1694." But wait... here's the subtitle: "The Fast Life and Hard Times of Tom and Becky Delano" (aka Dr. Thomas Delano and Rebecca Alden). You do not want to miss this one!
