Staff report

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (June 22) — Last Saturday, Lemonade Day Monroe County provided a unique opportunity for local youth to develop entrepreneurial skills. The event, part of a national initiative, aimed to inspire young people to become future business leaders, social advocates, community volunteers, and forward-thinking citizens.

Participants set up lemonade stands throughout the county, emphasizing hands-on learning as young entrepreneurs engaged in business planning, budgeting, marketing, and sales. This year, the initiative received overwhelming support from various sponsors, who were committed to “pouring happiness, one cup at a time.”

Youth, mentors, partners, and volunteers played various roles to ensure the event’s success. Resources were available on the Lemonade Day Monroe County website to assist participants in preparing for their stands.
