National Lemonade Day


Today, there were hundreds of lemonade stands across Odessa for National Lemonade Day.

Complex Community Credit Union and ECISD's Avid have partnered to teach some of our youth how to become business owners.

One stand in particular was for the LBJ Giants Mini Prep Cheer Squad.

“Our girls have learned to make a plan, ask for a loan, set up a stand, and learn how to run a business, said Diana Whitacker, a Mom of one of the participants. “Our goal is to raise as much money as we can. This is for their end of the year party and all that they raise is going toward breast cancer research.”

Parts of the money raised will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. The rest will be used for the girls end of year party and their float in the Christmas Parade.
