The Grandfather Mountain Highland Games has compiled a list of area businesses that may be suited to host or assist with an Annual General Meeting or other function to be held by any of our participating clan or family societies. Societies are encouraged to contact the individual businesses directly to help pull final details together. As always, the our staff is eager to assist with any other help with this, or any other information that might make participation in the GMHG experience more valuable.
