9th Annual Lemonade Day benefits local Boys and Girls Clubs

Eau Claire (WQOW) — Numerous lemonade stands were spotted around the Chippewa Valley Thursday, all to help out area Boys and Girls Clubs.

Dozens of Boys and Girls Club members, and officials, were selling lemonade to raise money for the programs offered at the clubs. Boys and Girls Club officials said there is an entire lesson plan that goes along with ‘Lemonade Day’.

"Really to teach them what it’s like to be an entrepreneur, to be in business and customer service and how to treat people. It’s just a fantastic opportunity to learn while you’re having fun," said Sara Antonson, the CEO of the Boys and Girls Clubs.

If you were unable to make it out to a stand before they closed, Antonson said you can help out a local Boys and Girls Club by volunteering.

The fog and clouds lifted late Friday morning, and that meant the sun finally shined brightly for much of the day. While it doesn’t have a lot of power this time of year given we’re only a week away from the winter solstice, it still helped warm us into the mid 30s.
