Kids Raising Money For Kids

by LonSeidman

Its a hot day out there!

If you’re on the way to Banknorth or coming out of Pat’s IGA and need some refreshement, stop by the the two tents behind the store. A Lemonade stand has been set up in DaPa Construction’s parking lot on Mad River Rd. Ext. Lemonade is 50 cents and there are homemade lollipops for sale. The kids are raising money for Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Debbie Nadeau is chapperoning the handful of young children who call out to passing cars.

So if you hear a couple of screaming kids, just stop by for some cool lemonade on a hot day for a good cause. “We’ll be out here until about 4 pm – but we’ll do it again!” says Nadeau.
