May 18th has been proclaimed Lemonade Day in Manchester

On Tuesday, May 2nd, Manchester Mayor Marilyn Howard signed a proclamation at the Manchester Chamber of Commerce Luncheon, declaring May 18th as Lemonade Day.

Lemonade Day is a student entrepreneurship program established by the Manchester Chamber of Commerce, which provides kids with real-world experience by running their own business. Students from Coffee County and Manchester City Schools will create a business plan, market their product, and determine the cost per cup of lemonade sold to make a profit.

Lemonade Day was such a huge success last year that the number of stands has grown from 12 to 28, and they will be located all around Manchester, including a stand at every school. Last year, our elementary school children sold over 2,000 cups of lemonade, resulting in $8,187.37 in revenue.
