Lemonade Day

Lemonade Day

For one day in early May, lemonade stands will pop up all around Elkhart.  Saturday, May 4 is Elkhart’s second annual Lemonade Day.  In her eTruth blog post It’s almost time for Lemonade Day Elkhart, Marlys Weaver-Stoesz reports that about 500 Elkhart students participated last year and that the organizers are hoping for 1000 this year.

Lemonade Day is held in communities across the country to help children learn how to start their own businesses. In the process they also learn about handling money and other valuable life skills.

We have made a Lemonade Day book list especially for kids who want to know more about starting a business. Included are “getting started” guides for young entrepreneurs,  matching interests with opportunities, handling money and more. All of the titles are available from the Elkhart Public Library.

For more information about Lemonade Day, and to register, visit the Lemonade Day Elkhart website. Regular updates are posted on Lemonade Day Elkhart’s Facebook page

Lemonade Day backpacks can be picked up at the following Elkhart locations:

The backpacks include the materials and information needed to set up a lemonade stand. Registration forms are also enclosed for those who have not already registered online.
