Oct. 21, 2001 – Young ladies, shine up your batons and practice your high steps: A new majorette troupe is forming on St. Thomas, and is looking for girls age 4 to 15.
A first meeting will be held Nov. 3 for interested girls and their parents, organizer Julie Jackson said. The location is not certain yet; call Jackson at 774-6437, or email the organizers at blue@viaccess.net.
The group is looking for the many youngsters out there who have expressed a desire to be part of a majorette troupe but haven't yet had the opportunity, Jackson said. They hope to have up to 50 girls, or even more.
The group's paperwork to become a nonprofit is in the lieutenant governor's office, Jackson said. They are searching for sponsors and for a suitable practice area, perhaps in the area of Ft. Christian parking lot.
