About a week ago, my kids and several of their friends along with their families attended a fun filled activity packed week at a unique club located about 20 minutes from where we live. The week is attended by families and friends, and although not a camp, the week has a camp like feel where families stay in cabins that they own and either live in as a permanent residence or own them as a getaway home/cabin. Knowing that this week would be buzzing with families, my sister and I had discussed letting my kids and their friends do a lemonade stand. Our plan was to do it for one day....and I just knew we would raise about $100 dollars and maybe if we were lucky, a little over. We held the lemonade stand and the kids had a great time and business was BOOMING!!!! We were all so, we continued the lemonade stand all week long. We did it during the day, during the night, and anytime we had some down time. We had a special recipe and many of the kids told us that it was the best lemonade that they had ever had!!!!!

The lemonade was by could give as much or as little as you wanted. The kids told everyone who we were giving our money to...a little orphan in Russia whose name is Alice. Adults and children alike gave more than we ever imagined. By the end of the week, the kids had raised.....



That was more that I ever imagined. The lemonade stand was a huge success and we can't wait to do it again next year. We are already making plans. The kids and adults alike had a great time.

Enjoy the pictures of the lemonade stand and please help Alice find her forever family. She now has an almost 7,000.00 grant.

My dad came to get some of the best lemonade around.

Even the police officers came

Working hard

Please help us find Alice's forever family!!!!
