students set up lemonade stand at Spann Elementary School
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
In celebration of Lemonade Day, select students from public elementary schools in Jackson have entered a national contest for bragging rights to the Best Lemonade Stand.
Students are set up at Spann Elementary School at 1615 Brecon Drive in Jackson until 3 p.m. today with their stand.
The students are raising money for a local shelter, Lizzie's House, which provides at risk women and children in crisis with a permanent housing shelter. The center equips the families with the necessary skills to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, hopelessness, and dependency, in order to gain stability and become productive citizens in the community.
The menu consists a signature recipe, mint lemonade and added flavors of Green Rush, Blue Typhoon and Purple Haze. Prices rage from $1.00 to $2.00 per cup.
According to staff, the students have grown the mint themselves in the student operated garden.
