Letter: Lemonade for a cause


Dear Editor:

Lemonade Day is coming up on June 29, and there will be plenty of kids throughout the valley attempting to make their first “paycheck.”

Putting up a lemonade stand is more than making a few dollars: It is about learning the cost and operation of the stand, how to make a good product and the importance of marketing and customer service. By registering for Lemonade Day at Alpine Bank or at rfv.lemonadeday.org, your child will learn the basics and get excited about starting their business. This is the second summer that my kids will be out there perfecting their stand. They talked about it over the winter and how they could improve it.

So, whether you are thirsty or not, I urge you to stop and buy a cup of lemonade on Lemonade Day Roaring Fork Valley and boost a kid’s entrepreneurial spirit.

Aimee Conrardy
