Sip, Smile, and Support: Lemonade Day Takes Over Williston on July 22
Williston is gearing up for the 9th annual Lemonade Day on Saturday, July 22! The Lemonade Day program is a FREE, fun, and interactive learning program that teaches children and teenagers how to begin, own, and run their very own business — a lemonade stand.
The primary goal of Lemonade Day is to provide young people with the tools they need to assume responsibility for their lives and develop into productive members of society. These young people are future business leaders, social champions, volunteer workers, and forward-thinking citizens.
Every youngster who signs up for the program will receive a FREE software download and a backpack to carry their various instruments of achievement. They will learn the lessons of Lemonade Day through the use of the FREE Lemonade Day app, such as how to create budgets, how to set goals for making a profit, how to serve customers, how to repay investors, and how to give back to the community. They also build the self-esteem and skills necessary for future success, such as goal-setting and problem-solving, as they progress through the program. They get to retain all of the money that they earn and are urged to spend some of it, save some of it, and give some of it away.
This city-wide event would not be possible without sponsors. This is who has committed so far.
The Williston Chamber of Commerce hosts this event and encourages early registration. Click here to register, or to get more details.
