So far, 300 area students have signed up to participate in the second annual Lemonade Day Elkhart.
Local organizers, though, are hoping that number reaches 1,000 by May 4, the day of the event.
Last year’s event was the first for Elkhart, with about 500 kids participating. The local event is part of a national organization that teaches kids about entrepreneurship and business by running a lemonade stand. Local organizers provide colorful guidebooks that take students through each step of the process. Kids work with mentors to have adult input and help through the process too.
Last year, organizers worked closely with Elkhart Community Schools to get the word out, but this year, Lemonade Day Elkhart will reach further across the county.
“We have taken active steps to expand across all of Elkhart County to include both the Concord school system and Goshen school system,” said Meggan Patty, spokesperson for the local event. “There are billboards all over the county and groups of people from each school system promoting Lemonade Day. There will indeed be stands all across the county on May 4!
