Lemonade Day coming to Golden Triangle
Lemonade Day is a free learning program that teaches kids how to start, own and operate their very own business — a lemonade stand.
This year kids in the Golden Triangle will once again get to join in on the fun June 11.
Each child who registers gets access to an online interactive program that teaches them the valuable lessons of Lemonade Day — including how to set a goal, make a plan, work the plan, and achieve their dreams. Participants are encouraged to spend, save and share some of their profit.
For information and to register for Lemonade Day, visit lemonadeday.org/golden-triangle
