Lemonade Day Kick-offLemonade Day Galveston County is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches kids how to start, own and operate their very own business – a lemonade stand. Lemonade Day has spread to over 57 cities in 23 states and 3 countries

A kickoff celebration was hosted Wednesday at La Marque City Hall by Mayor Bobby Hocking and members of La Marque’s City Council.  La Marque Councilman and 2018 Lemonade Day City Champion, Chris Lane, shared his enthusiasm for the event, “By exposing our youth to the various principals that are incorporated into the lemonade day curriculum; we hope to cultivate and empower the next generation of entrepreneurs.”

Gina Spagnola, Lemonade Day County Director and President and CEO of the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce, was on hand with GRCC staff to distribute information to potential participants in this year’s program.

Each child that registers receives a FREE backpack, t-shirt and Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches them the valuable lessons of Lemonade Day - including how to set a goal, make a plan, work the plan and achieve their dreams. Once a youth pays their investor back, they keep all of the money they earn and are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some of their profit. The life skills they will learn is priceless.

Anyone from kindergarten to 12th grade can be involved in Lemonade Day! Young entrepreneurs with lemonade stands need mentors, investors, business partners, great locations, and customers! Sponsors and volunteers are also needed to make Lemonade Day a success.

Lemonade Day 2018 in Galveston County is on Sunday, May 6.
