Lemonade with Love

lemonade stand 1

Joelle, Rylee and Madeline have a lemonade and snacks stand set up near 17th and Walnut Streets.

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.

Part of the proceeds benefit a friend undergoing cancer treatment in Oklahoma.

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.”

    I always find it hard to pass up a lemonade stand.

    • chris

      figure if a kid is willing to work instead of play video games all day the least I can do is take the time to circle back around and purchase a cup.

    I went by today to donate to this great cause, and I didnt see their stand. Maybe i just missed it, or maybe they were taking a break. I would love to donate to this great cause, Youth like this is what we need for our future leaders.

    Lemonade was GREAT!!!, I asked them if they were making some good money, and they said yes. They told me how much they think they have made, and I think the town of Hays can up this amount significantly. C’Mon Hays go grab a cheap cup of lemonade, and support these girls effort to help a friend.
