The Waco Colony of Texas Society of Mayflower Descendants met on May 14, 2022 at La Madeleine’s French Restaurant in Waco, Texas with Governor Judy Baker presiding. We were honored to have Prarie Counce, Governor of TSOMD, who presented a wonderful slide show of her recent trip to Leiden, near Amsterdam in the Netherlands, where the Pilgrims resided before boarding the Mayflower. Along with recognizing four new members, we were delighted to have one of those new members with us...Judie Allen, DGG and Past Governor and her husband Steve. It was the pleasure of our Colony to present our $500.00 scholarship to Hannah Lewandowski, a Junior Member of our Colony. The Mayflower Minute was presented by one of our newer members, Lisa Ferguson, who told some very interesting information on one of her ancestors, Richard Warren.
