Lemonade Day volunteers & sponsors needed


Greater Lafayette Commerce has begun planning for Lemonade Day, 2012.

The event helps children set-up a lemonade stand to learn about entrepreneurship and what it takes to run a business.

G.L.C. Economic Development Program Manager Nancy Sells says they’re looking for volunteers and locations.

"To host kids and their lemonade stands. Volunteers are needed to make sure everything goes alright and to help the children if they need it. Volunteers do not need to have a background in business or economics."

Last year’s event involved roughly 500 kids.

Sells says they hope to have more than 700 participate on Saturday, May 19th throughout the Lafayette area.
