The weekend brings two big events in Halifax County: Walk For Hope, a fundraiser for the Halifax County Cancer Association, and the Clover Fall Festival to benefit the Clover Volunteer Fire Department. Walk For Hope will unfold Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Halifax County fairgrounds as cancer survivors, family members, friends and supporters take laps to raise money for those in the community who have been afflicted by the disease. The fundraising goal is $80,000; if reached, four supporters — Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital President Jason Studley, Chamber President Mitzi McCormick, Halifax Town Manager Carl Espy and State Trooper David Clark — have promised a special payoff: kissing a pig. Fun will also be on the agenda all day Saturday in Clover as the town’s firefighters and auxiliary host the Clover Fall Festival. The event begins at 11 o’clock in the morning with the vehicle parade through Clover, followed by lunch on the grill with hot dogs, hamburgers and bologna burgers. Entertainment will be provided during the day by High Grass Band, Forever Blessed, Stain Glass Bluegrass and Moonshine Son, and the festival continues through suppertime with BBQ and chicken tender plates. The CVFD will be holding a grand prize raffle for $1,000 in cash, along with three consolation prizes of $250 each. Raffle tickets are $1.00 each, and the drawing will be held at 7 p.m. Everyone is invited to come out and support the HCCA and the Clover department fundraisers. / September 12, 2019
