Lincoln High School Cheer Adviser Lori Cota announced her cheer squad will be busy doing community service next week. Sunday, the team will be in Loomis at Del Oro High School cheering on the charity football game between Placer County and Nevada County law enforcement. The game begins at 3 p.m., and the proceeds go to benefit the military’s wounded. All branches of service are expected to be on hand. The Fighting Zebras’ cheer squad will be cheering for Placer County. Monday will be no holiday for the cheer squad as they join with The Great American Bake Sale to raise money for No Kid Hungry Organization. Labor day for the cheerleaders begins Tuesday, and will run through Wednesday, as they police the grounds at Lincoln High. They’ll be picking up trash, pulling weeds, trimming bushes, and possibly planting some new plants. Thursday, the crew will spend some time visiting with the community’s elderly at the nursing facilities in the area. Friday, they will return to the school to offer a gift of thanks to all the teachers and administrators that make Lincoln High the great school that it is.
