Lemonade is still 5 Cents

Growing up in the 60’s, Lemonade and Kool-aid stands were the main staple of income for most of us kids and certainly an oasis of relief on hot summer days for the maintenance workers and postal carriers in our neighborhood.

Of course a litigious society and fear of less-than-nice folks have changed that iconic symbol of our neighborhoods.

National Night Out is the first Tuesday in August. I would encourage you to reserve your spot with your local police department. Have a block party and socialize with your neighbors. Introduce your kids to the concept of a lemonade stand or Kool-aid stand during that event.

Encourage your neighbors to get together and stand firm to improve our neighborhoods and communities.

In Emporia, you may call Brendy Allison, 620.343.4211 at the Emporia Police Department.

Help give crime a going away party and have some lemonade at the same time.
