LEMONADE DAY IS THURSDAY. Make your plans to visit elementary lemonade stands around town

Manchester will be the second community in Tennessee to play host to a global youth entrepreneurship program that teaches leadership and business skills by encouraging children to launch a lemonade business – the program is simply called “Lemonade Day.”

Manchester Chamber of Commerce is working in partnership with the Manchester City Schools to allow fourth grade students to study material, develop individual business plans and, for a day, run a lemonade stand at various locations in Manchester. Each group will develop their own products, plans and pricing. Everyone in Manchester is encouraged to participate by visiting one of the stands.
