DQ/Orange Julius to partner with Boys & Girls Club of the Lakes Region to host Alex's Lemonade Stand

LACONIA — In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer, DQ/Orange Julius of Laconia will join the middle school club members from the Boys & Girls Club of the Lakes Region to host an Alex's Lemonade Stand on Wednesday, August 13 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This summer has been a "summer of service" for the Club's middle school members. Participants have engaged in a number of service projects to benefit a variety of recipients. Projects like making cards for hospitalized, beatification of a community members property and free car wash are a few of the projects the members have had the opportunity to take part in.

While developing the idea for a lemonade stand the middle school members were very optimistic and excited about the possibilities. After some discussions, DQ graciously offered their location for the event. Middle school members were very happy to learn that one of their favorite places in Laconia was willing have them as guests.

In addition to buying lemonade from the stand, there are three more ways to contribute. The Boys & Girls Club has set up a web page that you can make a donation to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, as well as texting the word "lemonade" to the number 1116925 to donate $10. The Boys & Girls Club is also selling paper lemons you can write your name on and have hung in the club entrance. If you would like to donate using a check, you can make it out to "Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation".
