Fond du Lac Lemonade Day 2024

On May 4, 2024, youth involved in the Lemonade Day program finally set up their lemonade stands all across Fond du Lac County. The Lemonade Day program is about more than just a Lemonade Day stand. In the Fond du Lac Area it is a community tradition that has taken place for the past eight years. Community engagement in sponsorship, volunteers serving on committees, schools, churches and youth-serving agencies ALL coming together to teach and encourage our youth in starting their own business…a lemonade stand. 

The objective of Lemonade Day is to teach children the entrepreneurial skills necessary to be successful in the future and become contributing members of their communities. They learn how to create a budget, set profit-making goals, serve customers, repay investors and give back to the community. For kids, one of the best parts is that after covering their expenses and paying back their investors, they can keep what they earn. We encourage them to spend some of their profit as a reward for their hard work, save some of their profit for a rainy day or to re-invest in their business, and share some of their profit with the community that supported them.

Lemonade Day is a free program for all youth in grades 3-6. The curriculum, activities, products and resources of Lemonade Day are made possible by the generous donation from Society Insurance, as well as UW-Madison/Division of Extension and other individuals, businesses and community organizations in Fond du Lac County.
