Registration Is Open!
Yesterday, the Lemonade Day flyer came home in my son’s backpack. Although I knew it was coming, it was still fun to see my son so excited about it…even more so because it happens to transpire on his birthday! I guess we will have to plan his party for the weekend before.
Two months ago, I blogged about the Lemonade Day program and fostering the young entrepreneur and more recently, DAWA Solutions blogged about it as well. If you follow our Facebook page, you’ll see that Mayor Klug proclaimed June 17th, 2017 as Williston Lemonade Day this past month. This national program brought to our area for the 3rd year in a row offers opportunities for families and businesses – the whole community in fact – to foster the kind of foundation our youth need to become successful citizens. It is a fantastic, hands-on educational program and I am truly excited to be involved this year.
This week marked opening of registration – it is free!! It can be done online or in person at the Chamber or any of the following registration events:
April 22nd at the Raymond Center – Kids Day out (10am-2pm)
May 6th at the Arc (10am-2pm)
May 13th at Band Day (10 am-4pm)
June 3rd at the Arc (10am-2pm)
If you register online, you can simply pick up your backpacks at the chamber or the above events.
Thanks to the generosity of many area businesses even the backpacks and materials are free. Some businesses can help by offering their business as a safe stand location (we are still looking for more – contact Bekka if you are interested). The event is also fueled by the many volunteers on our Leadership and Education committee, the Williston Young Professionals and of course our chamber staff. Like the old saying goes, it takes a whole village to raise a child: join in on the community fun this summer. There is a way for all to be involved – especially taste testing lemonade.
We already signed Dean up! Come by the Chamber on June 17th to see us!
