Kootenay Kids Society hosts grand finale lemonade stand

The lemonade stand and bake sale is on Baker St. Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

On Wednesday the Kootenay Kids Society will hold their grand finale lemonade stand and bake sale. This will be their fourth lemonade event this summer in partnership with Scotiabank Nelson with all funds raised being matched by Scotiabank’s Bright Futures program.

“We have already had three very successful lemonade dates but still need to raise more money to help support the many programs and services that Kootenay Kids Society offers to families in our community,” said society chair Janet Leahy.

“We have learned over the summer that certain baked goodies have become favourites amongst locals and tourists alike.

“So while you’re reading today’s Nelson Star, why not enjoy a delicious glass of ice cold lemonade and some baked goodies and help maintain and support all the fantastic programs and services Kootenay Kids Society provides in our communities?”

The lemonade stand and bake sale is on Baker St. from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
