is the Greater Governor Mifflin League?
The Greater Governor Mifflin League (GGML) is a community organization
which consists of members (volunteer residents) from the Governor
Mifflin School District areas of Shillington, Mohnton, Kenhorst,
Brecknock, Gouglersville, and Cumru Township.
When was the GGML
The GGML was formed in 1976 as a Bicentennial Committee and is now
in its 36th year.
What is “Community
Each year the GGML organizes a week-long community fair known as
“Greater Mifflin Community Days” which enables local
organizations to raise funds and also bring the community closer
together. The fair is held on the campus of the Governor Mifflin
Middle and Senior High Schools. There are generally more than 45
food and game stands as well as amusement rides. Nightly entertainment
is provided free of charge. The week-long event is climaxed on the
Saturday following the 4th of July with a fabulous fireworks display.

Where do the proceeds
The food and game stands are sponsored by or run solely by Governor
Mifflin-based organizations. The proceeds from the stands are divided
between the sponsoring organizations and the GGML. The GGML proceeds
from the fair are returned to the community in the form of contributions
to local fire companies, ambulance associations, scout troops, school
projects, community projects, scholarships, etc. as determined by
