Okay, the Brentwood Fire Department stopped by our lemonade stand and totally made everyone’s day! Two trucks’ worth of guys stopped and got out, and all the kiddos were given hats. The men were super good sports and bought more than their fair share of lemonade and cookies.
By the end of the morning, the girls brought in $57. I wasn’t going to take back my supply money, but decided to after we had a little trouble with the dividing up of the earnings (lesson in fair wages and sharing and all that). So, I took $10 back for the cookies, lemonade, plates, and napkins; they gave $1 to each of the younger girls, and split the remainder between the two of them. Not a bad haul for a morning’s worth of work.
They are determined to do it again tomorrow, though I’m trying to convince them that the nice people who stopped by today won’t stop by every day. I may let them have another go next Friday, but NOT every day. *Grin*
