It would have taken a whole lot more than overcast skies and a little rain to dampen the entrepreneurial spirits of the 40 youth who showed up at “work” Saturday for First National Bank’s inaugural “BIG Lemonade Stand.”
From the authentic lemonade stand to the classic signage, this group of 5-13 year olds made the most of their afternoon. They poured lemonade, handed out stickers to loyal customers, and put their classroom learning to work.
Thanks to all of you parents for allowing your children to participate. Thanks to all of you who bought cold lemonade on a chilly day in order to encourage these eager kids to take the initiative and get excited about working hard and earning money. Thanks to Bluffton Presbyterian Church for allowing the kids to set up shop on the church lawn. Thanks to Bluffton Dari Freeze for donating cups for the stand. Thanks to Randy Scoles and company for his great work on the lemonade stand. And thanks to the young people who participated and have a little extra money in their savings accounts as a result of their labor.
