It’s free and easy to sign-up.In your Lemonade Day account, participants will have access to all Lemonade Day tools and resources, such as setting goals, picking a location, building a stand and more.

“I love Lemonade Day! It’s one of my favorite days in Elkhart,” says Meggan Fink, Lemonade Day Committee member. “Not only does it get kids out there learning how to start their own business, but it’s also the perfect opportunity for parents to teach kids about how to responsibly manage money and emphasizes the importance of giving back to the community. Lemonade Day is raising up good citizens, and it’s a beautiful mission to be a part of.”
