Ouachita County, Ark. (KTVE/KARD)–The city of Camden celebrated a full day of outdoor events for the entire family on Saturday, July 6. The 6th Annual Big Bass Fishing Tournament, a two-person scramble golf tournament, disc golf and softball tournament all took place throughout the city.
The event served as an introduction to the first Lemonade Day. Eleven students in sixth through eighth grade learned to own and operate their own stands, and also learned how to set business goals and budget.
Community members were able to support the youth by purchasing a refreshing cup of lemonade.
Charlotte Young said, “This is the first time this program has been done in the state of Arkansas!”
