Bound for the Big Apple
2013 is her first year to cheer for the varsity football squad and that opportunity brought her the chance to participate in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, her first trip out of the southeastern area.
“I’ve never really been out of the South,” said the incoming senior at Houlka High School.
Moss and her fellow teammates attended Universal Cheer Association camp in Starkville this June where, as a senior, she is qualified to march in the annual parade in November.
Now the quest is on to find sponsors and raise funds to support the trip.
Moss and her family and friends are planning to hold a yard sale Aug. 2-3 at the intersection of Hwy. 32 and 15 at the flashing light in Old Houlka, across from the Houlka Food Shop. They are also having T-shirts designed that will be on sale soon for $15 each. A bake sale in being planned and individual or business sponsors are welcomed.
An account has been set up for funds at BancorpSouth in Houston in Saydee Moss and Christy Moss’ names for anyone who would like to make donations. The balance of payment to participate is due in mid-September so the group is working quickly to make Saydee’s dream a reality.
Moss will leave for New York Nov. 23 and return Nov. 29 after marching in the parade with other cheerleaders from UCA clinics nationwide. While in the Big Apple, she will have the opportunity to attend a Broadway show, tour the harbour and visit the Empire State Building.
“It’s a once in a lifetime thing,” Moss said.
For information on donations or how to help, contact Christy Moss at 662-322-2507 or message her on Facebook.
