Fishers celebrates Lemonade Day


By James Feichtner

Many us can probably identify with the classic kids’ lemonade stand on a hot summer day. Whether we remember doing it ourselves or seeing others do it, lemonade stands tend bring on a sense of nostalgia. But few may realize how much of an impact those stands can have on kids, especially in teaching them about entrepreneurship.



With Fishers being the epitome of an entrepreneurial community, what better way to celebrate this community characteristic than with Lemonade Day. Coming May 16, Lemonade Day will be coming to the streets of Fishers. This years event will be special as it will be the first time the event will have a community ambassador, and what better person to foster entrepreneurship than LaunchFishers founder John Wechsler.

Wechsler said he decided to get involved with Lemonade Day due his passion in changing the community by making entrepreneurship a dinner table discussion.

“If we can get families talking about entrepreneurship when their kids are in elementary school, it opens the little minds up to a world of potential,” Wechsler said. “Understanding early on that we all add value to the world in our own unique way is a great way to empower people to reach their fullest potential!”

Kids will be setting up lemonade stands throughout various locations in Fishers. The goal is to have 1500 kids registered, but at least 1000 kids are expected to participate. Aside from the numerous lemonade stands, local shops will also be offering special discounts in honor of the event.

“This was a little twist we wanted to add,” Wechsler said. “We said all along that we want everyone to know it’s lemonade day in Fishers on May 16th!”

Wechsler encourages Fishers residents to be sure and stop by a lemonade stand during the event, as there is no telling how it may impact a child.

“Sometimes the simplest of gestures can go a very long way in forming a young person’s self image and boosting their confidence level,” he said. “Take a minute to stop at the next lemonade stand and encourage a youngster — you never know, it might be the area’s next great success story!”
