Growing the Village is Sweet!

by Jenny Lichte

A big thank you to all who participated in our very first fundraiser!  Our summer lemonade stands exceeded our goals.  Where we hoped for 10 stands, we had 12, and with a financial goal of $3000, together, we collected $3062!  Thanks to all the kids and families who were creative with their marketing, skillful with their baking, welcoming with their service, and so very generous to share their proceeds with us.  A big thanks also to these three small businesses who donated to help make this a success.  Growing the village with you all this summer really was sweet!
