Fifth Annual Lemonade Stand

Apr 22, 2008  |     |   General

Jack and Kristin of Gretna will have their “Fifth Annual Lemonade Stand” at their Lyman Hylands neighborhood garage sale at 11963 Iva St. on April 24-26.

Monster-sized cookies and lemonade or iced tea will be for sale for $1, with all the proceeds from their lemonade stand being donated to the Open Door Mission. “Every year we are amazed at how many neighbors, friends and people from Gretna and Omaha remember our stand and watch for it each year,” said Jeanne, Jack and Kristin’s mother. Their goal this year is to collect at least $250. Jack, 6, and Kristin, 7, have worked their stand since they were 2 and 3 years old. The parents will be helping them with their sales this year, since they are both in school all day. The brother and sister will both be at their booth on Friday afternoon and Saturday to serve customers. Everyone is welcome to visit and purchase a cookie and drink to help support the homeless in our community.
