We rarely ever have a rainout of any event in West Texas and our participants in Complex Community Federal Credit Union's 'Lemonade Day' didn't let it stop them from operating their stands on Saturday.

Lemonade stands popped up all over  the city of Odessa Saturday, manned by young people learning about running their own businesses.  We used the Lemonade Day stand model of business to teach kids everything from start-up and business loans to stand presentation and customer service.  Lemonade Day is beyond plastic cups and powered lemonade mix being sold on a busy street corner.  It teaches kids the impact of a well thought out business plan, from how you’ll afford to start your business  through customer service.

All the children we talked with, said they had a new appreciation for people who start their own businesses. Thanks again to everyone who participated in 'Lemonade Day'!
