READING, PA. – A Community Committee has formed to host an event called the Exeter May Days Community Festival.

All proceeds will go to the Exeter Community Education Foundation (ECEF), a non-profit dedicated to enhancing the education of students in the Exeter School District. http://www.exetereducationfoundation.org/

The committee’s mission is to increase funding and awareness for ECEF and support the youth in our community by expanding on some of the older traditions of Exeter May Days and enhancing this event so that it is exciting for both students and the community. This event is the biggest event of its kind ever planned in our township and we invite all surrounding areas to come out and enjoy the festivities.
