The Greater Governor Mifflin League's Annual Community Days offers a full week of celebratory events planned on campus of Governor Mifflin High School for the 45th annual festival July 5 to 10.

The Greater Governor Mifflin League 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 10.

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 $500,000 back to the Governor Mifflin community.

After a year off due to COVID-19, this year’s Community Days will be held from Monday, July 5 to Saturday, July 10 and has two presenting sponsors – Seidel Auto Group and M&T Bank.
