The Year Was 1957…

June 11th, 2009 by admin

…when a 180 tun bark called by her shipwright, Stuart Upham, the Mayflower II, sailed out of Brixham, England on her historic voyage to Plymouth, Massachusetts. Please join us when we welcome and honor Joe Meany, an American who served as ship’s cabin boy on that proud vessel.

Hear ye, Hear ye

Visitors are invited to join museum staff for this full day celebration and
personal reminiscences of the remarkable 1957 voyage from England to
America. Come meet a 1957 Crew Member, Joe Meany, the American Cabin Boy of
Mayflower II, and hear his humorous stories, including how the crew
surprised him by secretly planning a shipboard graduation for him to replace
the official high school ceremony we was missing while at sea. Joe’s wife
Ann will also join us to share stories about how she ended up with Felix,
the Mayflower II kitten and mascot. At 10 am and 3 pm, meet Peter Arenstam,
current Mayflower II Captain
and a children’s book author, who will read
from his book Felix and His Mayflower II Adventures. Additional celebration,
and enjoyable activities for children will go on throughout the day. It is
family fun for everyone!
