Pirate's Ashore in Plymouth

A unique event unlike any others in downtown Plymouth, Pirates Ashore in Plymouth is an exciting, educational, all-day reenactment of the visit of three pirate ships to Plymouth in May of 1646 as described in Governor William Bradford’s “Of Plimoth Plantation”.

The “pirates” were English privateers, just back from capturing a number of Spanish ships in the Caribbean, flush with cargo and cash. The ships were welcomed to Plymouth and stayed for about a month spending money freely, drinking, and fighting. One particular fight resulted in the death of a sailor and the trial of the privateer Captain for murder!

Joining the New Plimmoth Gard as English privateers will be local maritime reenactor groups The Crew of the MermaydeThe Crew of the Raven and the Free Men of the Sea

The day starts with Old Colony Club members firing their cannon to signal the arrival of the privateers. Visitors are welcomed to The Mayflower Society grounds 10 AM to 4 PM to meet the pirates causing trouble in Plymouth Colony. The house will be open for tours. A detailed schedule of the days events will be available soon.

4th Annual Heroes Live Forever 5K

4th Annual Heroes Live Forever 5K
On April 1, 2014, Officer Gregg Maloney lost his life in the line of duty.  Officer Maloney was a 17 year veteran of the Plymouth Police Department and left behind his wife and 2 sons.  The first Heroes Live Forever 5K was created in Officer Maloney’s memory to raise funds for his family. 

In 2015 the Maloney Family Pay-It-Forward Fund was established to help other local Police, Fire and Military families in need.  

In addition to the Pay-It-Forward fund, we will continue to honor Officer Maloney and his family by donating a portion of the race proceeds to the Plymouth Police Relief Association as well as establishing a scholarship in his memory at Plymouth South High School to be given to a student going into the field of Criminal Justice.

5th Annual Rogo Cup to Cure SMA

5th Annual Rogo Cup to Cure SMA
 

The 5 th Annual Rogo Cup to Cure SMA Golf Tournament and online fundraiser is held in memory of Baby Mark Butler (6 months old) and in honor of Billy Spiege (15)l and Lauren Rogowicz (23), with one goal: to find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). The Rogo Cup to Cure SMA Golf Tournament will be held on Monday, June 5, 2017 at the Atlantic Country Club in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The day will entail a shotgun start at 12:00pm , goody bag, contests, dinner, silent auction, raffles and awards.

 

SMA is a disease that robs people of strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk, eat, or breathe. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants.

 

All proceeds go to the New England Chapter of Cure SMA (Federal ID# 36-3320440)

 

Cure SMA is dedicated to the treatment and cure of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Since 1984, we’ve directed and invested in comprehensive research that has shaped

the scientific community’s understanding of SMA. We are currently on the verge of breakthroughs in treatment that will strengthen our children’s bodies, extend life, and lead to a cure. We have deep expertise in every aspect of SMA—from the day-to-day realities to the nuances of care options—and until we have a cure, we’ll do everything we can to support children and families affected by the disease.

Come have a great day on a great course for a great cause!
