Youngsters with lemonade stand thanked by charity

Every now and then, we need to celebrate great kids, their huge hearts, and give a shout out

Dear Editor,

Every now and then, we need to celebrate great kids, their huge hearts, and give a shout out to their parents for doing an excellent job.

Here’s the wonderfulness of it all: On Friday I received a call from the owner at Yogadive Co. to let me know that her daughter and her friend were doing a lemonade sale and would like to donate the proceeds to Sylvan Lake & Area Serenity Pet Shelter Society, and would that be all right … all she needed were some brochures and business cards.

These were duly delivered with gratitude.

Later that day, at the Farmers’ Market on Main Street, Mandalynn Beamish and Ashelen Gonzalez delivered to our booth, $52.37 AND the most adorable sign they had made themselves.

We were so thrilled and so grateful – thank you girls, and mom, for helping the animals … awesome!

You made our day!’

Melanie Crehan,

Sylvan Lake & Area Serenity Pet Shelter Society
