The Greater Gladstone Civic Association (GGCA) hosts several events each year, including a contingent in the Lansdowne Fourth of July parade, followed by a neighborhood picnic on the Island at Walsh and DeForest Roads; a fall or Halloween activity; and a holiday tree lighting. In addition, the Mansfield Brass Quintent holds an annual Caroling Under the Streetlights one weekend night before Christmas and the Santa mailbox returns each December for mailing all important letters to the North Pole.

Please join your Gladstone neighbors as we represent the Greater Gladstone Civic Association (GGCA) in the Lansdowne July 4th parade. The GGCA formed in 1927 and is the only remaining active neighborhood civic association in the Borough. Let’s do the neighborhood proud with a strong showing.

Plan to arrive at 8:30a.m. on Tuesday July 4th at on E. Greenwood Avenue between Hyland and Wycombe Avenues. Look for the GGCA banner.
