It was a great day - warm and sunny. The parade went off well and we won the Grand Poppy Award for the best entry!! We sold a lot of lemonade and created a lot of awareness. We made $1500 this weekend on lemonade and also had our quilt raffle that brought in $710!
We were greatful for the sunny weekend that helped with ...our lemonad sales!
Thank you to ALL of you helped in so many ways - a special thank you to my mom and Michael for their extra hard work with the amazing float (if you want to know how we made the cup let me know!), Tim for giving us his truck and trailer and driving us and helping with the last minute decorations, Kim for helping with the float, the lemonade stand and her family for helping with the not so nice work of transporting stuff to and from the event, Diane for keeping me sane by taking care of the lemonade stand while I was trying to be at 3 places at once and doing such a good job of it, Valaree for setting up the information booth, Angela for letting me use her office as we kept running out of water and also for keeping my kids home for the night and all of you joined us on our float, helped with selling lemonade (we had many families with kids helping which was great) and to all those of you who supported us by being there to watch the parade and cheer us on or stopped by to buy lemonade. We could not have done it without you all. Thank you!!

Georgetown Village Halloween Festival

On October 31st we hosted a Alex's Lemonade stand at the Village Halloween festival. My mom and her friend Amelia set up the stand and served lemonade, while educating people about childhood cancer. It was a nice sunny day and there were lots of people who came by our stand. The stand made $127 in donations. We made new friends and made many aware of childhood cancer and the lack of research and funding. The highlight was seeing my mom dressed as a lemon! Thanks to my mom and Amelia for all their hard work.
