Two Aspen Elementary 4th grade classrooms completed YouthEntity’s

Lemonade Day in their classrooms, followed by the opening of a group

lemonade stand at the Aspen Gondola Plaza. Selling baked goods and

lemonade, the students’ hard work paid off in over $1,100 earned. After

paying back their investors, the students divided up their cash so that

they each received $10 to put into their personal savings and $200 was

donated to two nonprofits of the students’ choosing: Ascendigo and


Valley Land Trust. YouthEntity’s valley-wide Lemonade Day will take


on July 15, 2017. Visit for more information.
