Starting Saturday, May 16, kids will be participating in the Best Tasting/Best Stand contests where their stand and/or lemonade will be judged by celebrity judges including Mayor Sally Hutton, in the Depot under the overpass. Kids will set up at 10:00 a.m. and judging starts at 11:15. After the winners are announced and tropies are given on stage, many kids will stay during the Taste of Italy so that you can sample their lemonade and other treats they are making.
Sunday, May 17, is Lemonade Day all over Wayne County!
What a great day to go for a ride around Wayne County and discover all the talent our youth in the area have developed. Kids have gone through training for this day in their schools and through the Lemonade Day workshop and mentoring programs. They have learned about setting goals, making plans, setting a budget, working their plan and good customer service–among many other great business principles. They are ready to serve you!
Make a kids day on Sunday by encouraging them in their business efforts. Who knows, you may be the one person who makes them realize they have what it takes to own their own business and become successful!
Today Lemonade….Tomorrow the World!!

I know, I know. I haven’t written in a couple weeks. I have my reasons. I had finals, then Christmas, and then New Years. I promise from now on I’m going to try and write every week no matter what is going on. Now I do get writers block sometimes, but hopefully I get better.
Hey it’s 2015. 2014 has literally been the best year of my life. I’m not saying that just because it just happened. I honestly mean it. I finally have found myself. I have found people that I have known for like a month and they are already family. This is going to be short, but I don’t have much else to say besides 2014 is gone…make 2015 a hundred times better. I haven’t uploaded a new video yet, but I will get one up soon.
I’ll talk to you next time. Goodbye.
