  • The Great Galax Duck Race of 2018 took place at 10 a.m. on July 4, starting at the bridge next to the Vaughan-Bassett Furniture factory and ending in Chestnut Creek next to CVS with the capture of almost 4,000 felonious fowl by the Galax Volunteer Fire Department.

    For weeks, a flock of yellow rubber dastardly drakes have terrorized Galax and environs with their criminal activity. The malicious mallards would stop at nothing — peddling stale bread, obscene duck calls, ripping off mattress tags — to flout the law and disturb the peace.

  • Staff Reports

    Celebrations are planned in communities throughout the Twin Counties for July 4.

    In Galax, the Galax Fire Department will sponsor three activities.

    The day begins with the annual Great Galax Duck Race at 10 a.m., when dozens of rubber ducks are dumped into Chestnut Creek from the Grayson Street bridge. Those who have purchased the ducks root for them to cross the finish line downstream at the East Stuart Drive bridge on U.S. 58 next to CVS.

  • HILLSVILLE – In support of the American Cancer Society, residents from Carroll County, Hillsville and Galax teamed up this past weekend to raise awareness for the Relay for Life campaign; a grassroots, community-based team event that provides encouragement for cancer patients and raises money for research.

    Many downtown business owners participated in Hillsville’s “Paint the Town Purple” campaign, in which storefronts and other properties were decorated with purple to show patronage for the cancer society and its mission.
