No relaxing indoors with the cool air-conditioning for three Hays girls.
These friends are sweating it out to help another friend.
And they hope you’ll help too.
Joelle, a Holy Family Elementary sixth-grader, Rylee, Wilson third-grader, and Madeline, a seventh-grader at Hays Middle School, have a lemonade and snacks stand set up near 17th and Walnut Streets.
Half of the proceeds will be given to Madeline’s former HMS classmate, Talia Joy, who’s moved with her family to Oklahoma to undergo cancer treatment.
The girls, with some help from their families, opened their stand yesterday morning and plan to be in place through Friday. Their personal recipe for lemonade is an eye-catching drink with floating lemon and lime slices–one dollar a cup.
They intended to open at 9 o’clock this morning, but were delayed.
“We’ll be there this afternoon,” says Joelle. “We had to work in the garden this morning and then eat lunch.”
