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 Manchester Chamber of Commerce has been working in partnership with Manchester City Schools to provide curriculum and training materials to all fourth-grade students at College Street and Westwood Elementary Schools and one group of students at Westwood Middle School.
The program will culminate in Lemonade Day Manchester on Thursday, May 19. Eleven lemonade stands will be located at area businesses, led by these student entrepreneurs. Stands will be open from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Manchester vice mayor Mark Messick signed a proclamation declaring May 19 as Lemonade Day in the city.
