  • Lord’s Acre cancelled due to field conditions

    Despite a renewed interest from churches, more of whom would have participated this year, the annual Lord’s Acre Sale in Galax has been canceled this year due to weather.

    Thomas Lee, who organizes the event with the United Workers for Christ, had expressed concern earlier this week that rain might create poor conditions on the ground in Felts Park.

    “We just don’t feel that it’s doing to be dry enough for us to drive across the ground that’s been repaired [from the Fiddlers’ Convention],” said Lee.
