Kids Learn, You Get an Ice-Cold Lemonade and the Community Wins

By April 5, 2019 No Comments

What’s better than a refreshing cup of lemonade on a spring day? Enjoying a cup of lemonade made by young entrepreneurs learning financial, leadership, teamwork and customer service skills right here in the Fond du Lac area.

Look for a student-run lemonade stand from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 4 throughout the greater Fond du Lac area for Envision Greater Fond du Lac’s 5th Annual Lemonade Day.

Part of a global initiative to teach kids the power of running their own business, participants learn how to create a budget, set profit-making goals, serve customers, repay investors and give back to the community. They are encouraged to split their profit into three categories: money to spend as a reward for their hard work, money to set aside/save, and money to donate back to the community that supported them.

Watch for the special guest judges…Verve!

We’ll be there in our orange T-shirts sampling lemonade and treats from each stand and casting our votes in various categories.

Teaching kids budgeting and leadership skills that will prepare them for a successful future is important to Verve. That’s why we’re proud to support the Fond du Lac Area Lemonade Day as guest judges.
