Looking ahead...save the date of Tuesday, May 18th

Save the date of Tuesday, May 18th, from 7-7:30 p.m. for the Greenway Kids Lemonade Stand Service Project.

Last year the kids set up lemonade stands at the park with proceeds going to the Lukach Family. What a neat event it was! So great to get the kids, who ranged in age from 2-10 years involved in community service and to see the way in which neighbors so generously gave. We all particularly enjoyed how each lemonade stand seemed to have an 'extra' to try and draw people in, whether it was baked goods, or licorice, or suckers! What fun to see the creativity and just a great opportunity to get the kids involved in helping others!

We thought that this is something we would like to make a tradition, picking a different cause each year for the lemonade stands to benefit.

Details will come as the date approaches
