Lemonade Day Galveston CountyThe Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce presented the sixth annual Lemonade Day Galveston County on Sunday, May 7.  Nearly 900 children from across Galveston County became entrepreneurs by setting up lemonade stands. They have been preparing for weeks by learning the lessons of owning and operating a business, such as setting goals, planning, budgeting, finding an investor, running their business and so much more.

Lemonade Day Galveston County is an initiative of the Galveston Regional Chamber’s Education Committee to empower today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs.

Youth of all ages – from pre-K through high school, across Galveston County participated.  Each young entrepreneur received a backpack with an entrepreneur workbook that teaches the 14 lessons of Lemonade Day. Local businesses lend support by donating money, mentoring kids and serving as a site location.

To learn more and to participate in next year’s event contact the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce at (409) 763-5326.
