Young Entrepreneurs Open Their Business on May 7, 2022 – Lemonade Day!

On May 7th, one hundred and twenty-five youth and adult mentors will open over 25 lemonade stands throughout Fond du Lac County as part of the Lemonade Day educational program.  Stands will open up from 11am – 2pm in Fond du Lac, Lomira, Waupun, Brownsville, and Eden. A map can be found at the Fond du Lac Lemonade Day webpage: Youth participants are organized through schools, youth-serving agencies, churches, home-school projects or families who have a youth heard about it and formed a team with friends!

These young entrepreneurs have learned, with the help of a mentor/teacher, how to set a goal, create a business plan, create a budget, choose a site location, and create an advertising plan. After building their stands they will open on May 7th, tracking their profits, and asking customers to judge them on categories such as customer services, quality of lemonade, and design of their stand.

Youth keep the money they earn.   They are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some with their favorite charity. Last year, 91% of the profits made in the Fond du Lac program was donated back to charity!

Lemonade Day is a free, community-wide, educational program that teaches youth, 4th-6th grade, how to start, own and operate their own business- a lemonade stand. Beyond financial lessons and entrepreneurial skills, youth also learn valuable life skills…leadership, teamwork, social skills, social responsibility, and a huge new sense of confidence in their abilities.

Lemonade Day 2022 is funded by a generous donation from Society Insurance and a grant from UW-Madison/Division of Extension. The ongoing donations and support from National Bank and Trust, Horicon Bank, Feris Popcorn and the businesses and organizations in Fond du Lac County make Lemonade Day a community tradition year after year.
