Celebrate Lemonade Day with Girl Scouts this Sunday!

lemonadeThis Sunday, May 1, Girl Scouts of all ages across Central Texas will come together with one goal in mind: to sell lemonade! Sunday is National Lemonade Day, and in celebration, Girl Scouts will set up stands to dish out the thirst-quencher for various causes.
Alena Bartek, a junior Girl Scout from troop 7081 in Hewitt, Texas, was presented with a special Lemonade Day Proclamation from the mayor of Hewitt when he learned of Alena and her troop’s charitable plans for the fun holiday. Troop 7081, along with other local troops, will hold several lemonade sales, with all proceeds going to help pay for over 100 central Texas Girl Scouts to attend the 2012 Rose Parade in Pasadena, California. This group of girls will help decorate the Girl Scout’s 100th Anniversary float for the Rose Parade in January.

In Austin, local troops will also be participating in National Lemonade Day with another cause in mind. This Sunday, from 11am to 5pm, at Vespaio Ristorante parking lot on South Congress Girl Scouts will sell lemonade to raise money for two Girl Scouts who are also leukemia patients. They intend to use the proceeds to send these girls to Disney World. Another wonderful cause!

Be on the lookout this Sunday for our sister Girl Scouts across our area selling your favorite summertime beverage, and join in the celebration by buying an icy glass of lemonade for a good cause!
