Full Week of celebratory events planned on campus of Governor Mifflin High School for 45th annual festival
The Greater Governor Mifflin League (GGML) was founded in 1976 as non-profit organization devoted to giving back to the community. In every year since, the GGML has presented a unique community fair featuring food, games, rides, and some of the best regional entertainment, including a spectacular “One-of-a-Kind” Fireworks finale which will culminate this year on Saturday, July 9th. Its main goal has been to return proceeds from the fair back into the community in the form of contributions to local fire companies, ambulance associations, scout troops, school projects, community projects, and scholarships, just to name a few. In our history, the GGML has given over $500,000 back to the Governor Mifflin community.
This year’s Community Days will be held from Monday July 4th – Saturday July 9th and has two presenting sponsors – Seidel Auto Group and M&T Bank.
