Some children who participate go beyond the basic lemonade stand, according to Fink.
“What’s so funny is kids are so smart,” she said. “They will set up their lemonade stands and sell a few extra things like cookies or candy to make their customers happy.”
The Lemonade Day committee is an independent organization, Fink said, though some members are also members of Junior Achievement. JA works through local school systems to promote business education. Fink thinks Lemonade Day fits that model well.
