Lemonade Day 2015 – Saturday, June 6
In 2007, Michael Holthouse founded Lemonade Day as a way to empower today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs. Since then, Lemonade Day has grown to include over 150,000 kids in 36 communities across America and Canada, including ours.

Along the way, they also learn about goal-setting and problem solving and gain self-esteem critical for future success. They keep the money they make and are encouraged to spend some, save some and share some.
