Camp Lemonade gets to work helping others
The Lemon Aide Society ran Camp Lemonade last week. The girls participated in daily service projects as well as regular camp fun. They also spent the week planning a lemonade stand, which they completed Thursday, July 30.
Over the week, the girls decorated pots and filled them with handmade flowers for The Legacy Midtown Park Assisted Living residents; made fleece blankets for Presby Plano women undergoing cancer treatment; made over 200 snack bags for Vogel Alcove; and made dog toys for East Lake Pet Orphanage. The highlight of the week was the lemonade stand held in Plano, where they raised over $300 for the pet orphanage.
