Lemonade Day

A rainy day greeted Lemonade Day Louisiana participants May 4, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of young participants like Grant Thompson, left, and Lily Payne, right, first photo. The two put up a stand at the Winnsboro Farmers Market, right photo, dedicating proceeds to benefit the Old Post Office Museum. This week Grant and Lily proudly presented a $75 donation to Earma Diaz, shown center, who accepted on behalf of Main Street manager and museum curator, Kay LaFrance-Knight (not shown). Lemonade Day was brought to Louisiana in 2010 by entrepreneurs John Georges (CEO of Georges Enterprises) and Todd Graves, founder of Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers who had their own lemonade stands as kids. Lemonade Day encourages entrepreneurship. The mission is “to help today’s youth become the business leaders, social advocates, community volunteers and forward-thinking citizens of tomorrow – one lemonade stand at a time.” (Submitted photos)
