The Meridian Youth Cheerleader Association will host a barbecue baked potato sale at the Meridian Civic Center Sunday, May 2. The group has held a couple bake sales so far with the youth, but is looking to fundraise for uniforms, pom poms, equipment and more. The fundraiser will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 309 West River Street in Meridian.
Potatoes come with all the fixins, as loaded baked spuds stuffed with brisket or pulled pork. Plates will be donation only, but community support is requested.
Meridian Youth Football signups are expected to begin around May. The MYCA Cheerleaders will join the mini cheer camp that the varsity squad hosts, and of course, the mini-cheer-themed pep rally. You can expect to see the girls at youth football games and more pep rallies throughout the year as well.
