Webinar: Lemonade Day

by Linda Coors on June 5, 2012

Julie Eberly, President, Lemonade Day

What a special webinar we had with Julie Eberly, President of Lemonade Day. You are going to really enjoy Julie’s energy and passion for  taking Lemonade Day to cities across North America and introducing a way to teach children about entrepreneurship. It really excites all of us too because it is an outside activity that gets communities out and brings back memories of past summer days where people enjoyed getting out and talking with neighbors and soaking up the long summer days.

Just curious. Was anyone required to obtain a permit before operating a lemonade stand? I have heard rumors of such things in the past.

Youth at the time of registration receive an Entrepreneur’s Workbook taking them through 14 business lessons, and a focus is on creating a safe and healthy product for your customer and following local health department guidelines. We reiterate this in all our communications with the mentors, parents, schools and youth partners. Because we have this in place, local Health Departments waive registered youth needing a special permit. Similarly, we work on a local level with Parks & Rec. to allow kids access to a safe location to run their business; again for registered kids, on the day designated as Lemonade Day in that city.
