AFTER LUNCH PROGRAM:

 Did you know that the Iowa Capitol building is the only state capital in the US with 5 domes? Commonly called the Iowa Statehouse. As the seat of the Iowa General Assembly, the building houses the Iowa Senate, Iowa House of Representatives, the Office of the Governor, and the Offices of the Attorney General, Auditor, Treasurer,  Secretary of State, and the beautiful Law Library. The building also includes a chamber for the Iowa Supreme Court, although court activities usually take place in the neighboring Iowa Supreme Court building. The building was constructed between 1871 and 1886. It has international stature as the award site for the World Food Prize.

The Iowa Capital Building tour guides will present our after lunch program about our Iowa Capital Building.

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAYFLOWER DESCENDANTS JOIN WAMPANOAG  DESCENDANTS  TO ASK SUPPORT      FROM CONGRESS FOR WAMPANOAG TRIBAL LANDS.

The Mayflower Society  is reaching out to support the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe in its quest to pass the tribes "Reservation Reaffirmation Act", now pending in Congress.  In 1621,  our ancestors signed a 54 year Peace
Agreement with  Massasoit and the Wampanoag tribe that allowed them to live together and protect each other.   The Mayflower Society voted on Dec. 8, 2018 to contact legislators  and urge them to preserve the tribes reservation land in Mashpee and Taunton.  This land today makes up only a fraction of the reservation once occupied by the tribe, which was more than 12,000 years.  It wasn't until 2007 that the Wampanoag  were re-acknowledged as a federally recognized tribe. A formal letter of support was drafted and sent to members of Congress.
