The Fort Hood Area Story

First National Bank Texas and Fort Hood National Bank introduced Lemonade Day to the Fort Hood Area community in the spring of 2010. At a youth development conference in Houston the prior year, bank staff was intrigued by this unique program that introduced children to money management and life skills through experiential learning.  Lemonade Day creator, Prepared 4 Life, also expressed an interest in expanding the program to reach children of military families.  Those initial conversations sparked the momentum that would lead the bank to sponsor this fun, free educational program.  In the years that followed, Lemonade Day Fort Hood Area has become an annual, community-wide event that inspires creativity and creates lasting memories.
