In the July 4 issue of the Carlisle Independent, it was inaccurately reported that the fireworks being sold at the fireworks stand on the Bobby Glover Highway between Immanuel Baptist Church and Texaco were sold as a fundraiser for the Carlisle Cheerleaders. Carlisle Senior Cheer Sponsor Lindsey Thaxton said it was actually for herself and LeAnn Brazeal.
"Last year it was the cheerleaders," Thaxton said. "But after the horrible year and no money made, we decided to not make the girls work all those days and hours. LeAnn and I had already committed to it by contract, so we had to fulfill our obligations as individuals to TNT Fireworks."
Thaxton said they will be making a donation to the cheerleaders and probably the dance team.
