National Entrepreneurial Program Lemonade Day Returns to the Southcoast this Spring
Lemonade Day returns for the 4th year on Saturday, May 5th! This year, we've expanded and are now officially Lemonade Day Southcoast. From Mattapoisett to Somerset, families in Greater New Bedford and Greater Fall River areas are invited to participate in this FREE, national program that allows children to learn the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and be their own boss for a day.
Kids of all ages will learn to own and operate their own business using the classic kid-business, a lemonade stand model! Lemonade Day is fun for the entire community; if you're not one of the many kids selling lemonade, you're volunteering at their stand, buying lemonade, or offering to host a stand at your business.
If you've ever found yourself telling your kids "Money doesn't grow on trees" this program is for you. Lemonade Day Southcoast teaches kids:
- How to set short-term personal goals (paying for a trip, buying an expensive pair of sneakers)
- The value of the desired item (the pair of expensive sneakers)
- How much 'work' they would need to do to earn the money to pay for the desired item (the pair of expensive sneakers)
- The importance of giving back to their local community (philanthropy)
It is FREE for kids to register and participate in this event, thanks to our Main Squeeze BayCoast Bank, our Champion ProGroup Contracting, and support from community sponsors like Frugal Franks, Sonic of Somerset, Auclair's Market and Cape Air.
For information on how to use the program as a fundraiser for your club, PTO or other groups please contact Kristen.Pacheco@Townsquaremedia.com
