Girls earn summer cash

July 15, 2010 // 0 Comments

The beginning of summer is an excellent time to start making your own money. So long as you sell more lemonade than you drink, you can do so by starting a lemonade stand! Rockford residents Maggie Gem, 11, and Marissa H., 12, who will be attending North Rockford Middle School in the fall, have begun their own lemonade stand to earn money for the summer. They began on Tuesday, June 15 and managed to make $8.20 on the first day. The girls plan to continue their summer project. If you would like to enjoy some of their pink lemonade, you can find them at 167 Courtland Street, Rockford. For 25 cents you can buy a small cup and for 50 cents, a larger cup.
