When the weather gives you hazy, hot and humid, Beginning Years Childhood Development Center gives you lemonade.
Today starts the Center’s 18th annual lemonade stand.
Each year the children choose a charity to sponsor and this year they have selected the Medfield Animal Shelter.
“We really try to teach the children about giving back and showing that they can have a lot of fun doing something that’s good for the community,” said owner and director Cathleen Farrell.
“I think it’s really important for the children to have a good understanding of what it takes to build community,” she said. “This is a sweet way for the children to learn.”
The lemonade stand will take place this week. Hours are Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and shortened hours on Friday from 10:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Watch for hand-crafted signs at the corner of Frairy and North Streets. For more information, contact Farrell at 359-4826 or firstname.lastname@example.org
