    Dear Santa,

    I have been good this year. I was nice to my mom, and I helped my mom clean the dishes. For Christmas, I would like a bicycle and Shopkins. I will leave you some cookies and milk. Thank you!

    Love,

    Judy

     

    Dear Santa,

  • Luke Harvey Ward turned 3 years old on Jan. 28. He celebrated with a Mickey Mouse birthday party with family and friends.

    He is the son of Kris and Mary Lynne Ward of Independence. He has three brothers: Braeden, Levi and Grayson Ward. Luke’s grandparents are Harry Cox, Bo and Susan Moxley, and Harvey and Jill Ward. His great-grandparents are Mary Jane Hollingsworth, Odell Moxley, Danna Ward, and Lacy and Dreama Bowman.

  • Mr. and Mrs. Mickey Alley of Galax announce the engagement of their daughter, Kayla Lynn Alley, to Hunter Webb Grubb, son of Keith and Nancy Grubb of Hillsville.

    Alley is employed by Dr. Gary Hanna of Galax and Grubb is a police officer for the Town of Hillsville.
    A June 3 wedding is planned.

  • Larry Thompson IV always waves when he sees Galax Police cars, and lately the 7-year-old had an even better idea of how to thank local “policemans” for their service.

    Last week, Larry came up with a plan and enlisted his aunt for a very important mission: Operation Taco Tuesday (on Saturday) — feeding police officers at the Galax Police Department.

  • Camp Zion Church of Galax will host a multi-church dinner and bake sale fundraiser on Friday at the Fairview Ruritan building, but not for themselves.

    In true Twin Counties fashion, they’re doing it to help out a neighbor.

  • Geneva H. Richardson celebrated her 97th birthday with five generations.

    Pictured are (front row, from left) Moriah Marshall, Harlin Richardson and Geneva H. Richardson; (back row) Leah Marshall, Travis Marshall, Kathy Richardson, Hailee Marshall Longoria and Amber Marshall.

  • For many years, anytime someone had a question about Galax’s past, the first thing they’d hear was, “Go ask John Nunn.”

    Galax’s unofficial historian and a deeply engaged citizen, Nunn offered plenty of facts and lore up from his encyclopedic knowledge for anyone who’d ask.

  • The family of Claneshia E. Cox is pleased to announce her engagement to William G. Gravely Jr.
    The bride-elect is the daughter of Annette C. Cox of Martinsville and Gregory D. Cox of California.

    She is the granddaughter of the late Piper and Willie H. Cox of Martinsville and step-granddaughter of Adrene Cox of Martinsville and paternal granddaughter of Ronald and Sonya Cox of Martinsville.
