Lemonade Day Kicks off in Northeast Ohio
Rain or shine, Lemonade Day stands abound this month in Northeast Ohio. Lemonade Day, which spans the spring and summer months, is a national youth entrepreneurship program that was brought to the region in 2011 by Burton D. Morgan Foundation and University School’s Young Entrepreneur Institute.
Founded in Houston by Prepared4Life in 2007, Lemonade Day is an annual community-wide event dedicated to teaching children how to start, own and operate a business by operating lemonade stands. Through this program, youth learn many essential skills around concepts such as pricing, location, product selection, marketing, and customer service. Lemonade Day is expected to engage approximately 3,200 youth in Northeast Ohio this summer.

Update: Seton Catholic School students will be manning Lemonade Day stands on May 6 and May 7 throughout Hudson. See below for schedule.
