Lemonade Day started in the Houston Texas area in 2007 as a teaching experience for children. Groups of volunteer's coached, taught, and encouraged children on how to start, own and operate their own business---a lemonade stand!
The objective of Lemonade Day is to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society. The business leaders, social advocates, volunteers and forward thinking citizens of tomorrow. Their words, not mine! Today Houston's Lemonade Day has grown by leaps and bounds and has spread throughout many states and across the country.
Elkhart began participating in Lemonade Day in 2013 and grown the number of participants each year.
