CASPER, Wyo. — More than 55 lemonade stands opened in Casper on Saturday, manned by Lemonade Day’s young entrepreneurs.
Lemonade Day kicked off at 8 a.m., with kids ready to serve the community lemonade and other refreshments, all with their own twists and selling points. The event’s website posted a map showing the stands’ locations, with addresses all around Casper.
This is the eighth annual Lemonade Day. Each year, Hilltop Bank sponsors an opportunity for kids to practice entrepreneurial skills; participating kids follow a 14-step process to develop their stands, and get to keep 100% of their earned profits.
“They made it very convenient,” said Brittany Trevino, mother and aunt to the group running Lemonhead Lemonade. “We all went up and did the packet, and it was really cool. We actually got gift cards … that really helped out. It was really great.”
