Abilities Plus Picnic...
The City of Galva was pleased to host the annual Abilities Plus picnic in Wiley Park again this year. The annual event, which is sponsored and managed by the Galva Lion's Club, kicks off around noon. This year, our guests were escorted to the Park by the Galva Fire Department, whose engine was driven by none other than the Galva Fire Chief, Denny Tarleton. Bringing up the rear of the motorcade was Galva Police Chief, Kraig Townsend.
