WEST MONROE - Children of First United Methodist Church of West Monroe will operate a lemonade stand on Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5 as part of Lemonade Day Louisiana.
Lemonade Day Louisiana is a fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business using a lemonade stand as well as fundamental lessons about life, success and themselves. Children worked together to create a menu, set prices and make posters to promote their lemonade stand.
Children of First United Methodist Church of West Monroe will operate their lemonade stand on Saturday, May 4 from 9 a.m. to noon on the church grounds, located at 1411 Glenwood Drive in West Monroe. Their stand will also be open on Sunday, May 5 during church services from 9 a.m. to noon. Children will sell lemonade and baked goods at their booth.
Proceeds from this weekend's sales will be used to help fund the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana's Backpack Program at Lenwil Elementary. This program helps provide backpacks of food items to hungry children in the community every weekend.
