Lemonade Day, 2022
Slave Lake’s annual Lemonade Day did not get rained out, as organizers and participants might have feared, given the forecast for June 18. Business was brisk, as a dozen teams of youthful entrepreneurs set up and manned their stands for a few hours at locations around town. Lemonade Day is a project of Community Futures, Lesser Slave Lake. Its purpose is to teach kids the basics of planning, setting up and running a small business.
The stands were assessed by a team of five volunteer judges, who named winners in three categories – Best Stand, Best Tasting and Area Entrepreneur. Best Stand went to one called ‘Koo Koo,’ which was located in front of the Slave Lake Multi Rec Centre, manned by sisters Isabella and Lily. Best Tasting award went to the team of Addison, Faye and Falon Gauchier. Winning the Entrepreneur Award was Annabella Bond.
