The Greater Spokane Valley Story

Lemonade Day in the Greater Spokane Valley

The Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce is leading a collaborative set of initiatives, The Big 5, to serve as a beacon and compass for economic prosperity and community vitality.  These initiatives include Greater Vision, Greater Learning, Greater Goods, Greater Cures and the Greater Outdoors.

Greater Learning is focused on integrating business and education to create the workforce of the future. Lemonade Day is a great way to prepare our youth to grow the local economy and learn how to become entrepreneurs.

Join us in building that workforce through Lemonade Day!  This is the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce’s inaugural year in presenting Lemonade Day.  We already have plans to expand the program next year to develop even more young entrepreneurs!

We are excited to announce that Fall 2020 you will see Lemonade Stands in front of chamber member businesses across this great valley!
