It rained Sept. 29, but it didn’t stop the Sixth Annual Truckers Parade Against Cancer that started in Hillsville and ended in Independence. Trucks displayed banners honoring cancer survivors and in memory of those who lost their battle with the disease. The parade was led by Virginia State Police and several fire trucks. Festivities included a barbecue lunch at Carroll Elementary, where the parade began. The event raises funds for the Galax/Carroll and Grayson County Relay for Life groups, sponsored by the American Cancer Society.
