Mayors proclaim May 15 Lemonade Day on the Alabama Coast
Baldwin County, AL – (OBA®) – Mayors Tony Kennon, Ralph Hellmich and Robert Craft of the towns of Orange Beach, Foley and Gulf Shores recently proclaimed Saturday May 15 as Lemonade Day on the coast of the Alabama at recent city council meetings.
Mayors and councils spoke about the benefits of the Houston-based National Education Program, which first arrived in the Alabama Coast region in 2018. The program is run by Coastal Alabama Business and South Baldwin Chambers.
“Having the support of the cities means a lot to us,” said Penny Hughey, Coastal Alabama Lemonade Day city directory. “Being able to be recognized at city council meetings puts so many new eyes on the program and introduces people to something that they may not have previously known was happening in the community.
Students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 can attend a variety of workshops on topics such as recipe development and booth building to help them prepare for the big day when they will be holding their own booth at a designated location in the community.
In addition to teaching the ins and outs of business, the program also encourages its “ participants to share the money they have earned in three ways …
- Spend It – As a reward for their hard work.
- Share it – With a cause or charity in the community.
- Keep It – Put Away Or Reinvest For Next Year!
Residents of Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Foley are encouraged to research the booths on May 15 and support young entrepreneurs, or they can view the booth listing on the
