Students from East Woods Elementary will fill downtown with lemonade stands this Saturday and Sunday.
Teams of students have spent months planning and budgeting their "business," which will sell refreshments and raise money for a charity of the team's choosing.
The Lemonade Day program began in 2007, created by Texas entrepreneur Michael Holthouse. It is designed, according to Holthouse's website, to show children "not just how to spend money, but to make it."
The program began with one city, Houston, and 2,700 children participating. This year it has grown to 150,000 student participants in 36 cities.
Stands will be located Saturday at Nicky Nicole, Drug Mart, Great Clips and Pizza BOGO from noon to 3:00 p.m. (Drug Mart's stand will run from 1:00-4:00 p.m.)
On Sunday stands will be located at Ace Hardware, Nicky Nicole, the Morgan Foundation and Vertical Runner, all running from noon until 3:00 p.m.
The program will continue over Memorial Day weekend, with other teams.
