Lemonade Day program expands in Hendricks County

The State Bank of Lizton’s 10 branches will be helping to register children to participate in Lemonade Day, this year scheduled for May 18.

Lemonade Day is a free program designed to empower children to become entrepreneurs. The program first launched in 2007 by native Hoosier and Houston-based businessman Michael Holdhouse. Scott Jones brought Lemonade Day to Indianapolis in 2010. It’s now operating in more than 40 cities around the country.

This year, the State Bank of Lizton has decided to help facilitate the program by being a registration site. Children can go to any of the SBL locations in Hendricks or Boone counties to register and get a free backpack.

Inside each backpack is the “Entrepreneur’s Workbook” which they use to prepare for Lemonade Day. They work through the lessons at home. Then, on May 18, the children get to set up “shop” at the various SBL locations and become lemonade “tycoons.”

Participants keep the money they earn but they’re also taught through the program to “spend a little, save a little, and share a little.”

SBL will be sponsoring Jami Marsh of the Think Forward Foundation, which is the Lemonade Day program, to speak at the March 20 Brownsburg Chamber meeting.

“This program is a lot of work but it’s a lot of fun too,” Marsh said. “The program has really exploded. The first year we had it in Indianapolis we had 7,500 kids register. This year our goal is to get 20,000 registered. It has gotten pretty big, pretty fast.”

SBL representatives will also be handing out backpacks at the Hendricks County Home & Garden Show March 22 and 23 and at the Boone County Home & Garden Show April 18-20.

“We will be having our own lemonade stand with employees, kids, and grandkids at the Relay for Life events in Brownsburg and Lebanon on May 18,” said Rhonda Wiles, vice president of marketing and community relations director for the bank.
