Although summer is my favorite time of the year, I also enjoy seeing the local kids/daycares/groups standing on the side of the roads with their lemonade stands. Of course what doesn't say summer without a little lemonade?
With that during the weekend of July 19th-21st you'll see several lemonade stands popping up in the area in support of Anthem LemonAid. This event raises funds to help the Children's Miracle Network to raise funds to help beat childhood cancer. If your in the Metro Richmond area all proceeds go to The Richmond Children's Hospital at VCU or if your in the Hampton Roads area all proceeds go to Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters.
We did this with the school-age children when I worked at a daycare several years ago and it was one of the best things ever! The kids decorated their own stands, made the lemonade (with help of course), and sold the lemonade themselves. The excitement was just unbelievable!
You can either register for either a physical stand or an on-line stand OR you have the option of registering for both. Below are the areas where you can register for your LemonAid stand.

Hope many of you guys get the opportunity to participate! It's an amazing cause and truly fun!
