As a member of the Society of Presidential Descendants, you will be invited to the Society’s inaugural forum in Long Island, New York. The weekend’s events will include a welcome dinner with fellow descendants, a public symposium with distinguished speakers, a private tour and lemonade party at Sagamore Hill, and a gala dinner where we will present a special honoree with the Society’s medal.
