Two civic minded young ladies will have a lemonade stand at Goldston’s Beach at White Lake on Friday, June 8th, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to raise money for cancer. Lauren Womble Thomas said her daughter and a friend have decided to raise money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.

Molly and Anna were seeking a way to serve and give back to the community. Thomas said a teacher at Elizabethtown Christian Academy, where the girls attend classes, told them about Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. According to Thomas, the teacher has a family member who works with the foundation.

Thomas said all of the proceeds the girls receive on Friday will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
