Lemonade Day Louisiana is May 6, 2017!

Lemonade Day is a great opportunity for children that gives them a strategic lesson-based program and walks them from a dream to a business plan, while teaching them the same principles required to start any big company. Inspiring kids to work hard and make a profit, they are also taught to spend some, save some and share some by giving back to their community. For activities and resources go to Lemonade Day Louisiana!
