Friday, September 26, 2003
Jackson High School Spear-It dancer Amanda Watson will stand on a billboard from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Fred's, located on East Jackson Boulevard in Jackson.
Watson is raising money for a trip to New York to dance in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and for ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). She will split the money equally between the causes. A representative of the St. Louis chapter of the ALS Association will be present to answer questions.
Watson will wear a safety harness, and a member of the Fruitland Fire Department will be there to respond to any emergencies.
