So, we’ve finally arrived to the now. Whoa, that’s exciting. 2012 was the most recently lemonade stand, and even though it was over a year ago, I still remember it like it was yesterday. It wasn’t raining that year, which was fantastic, and we even had a incredible surprise visitor, see below:
That’s right, John Carmichael (MPP), came to visit us at the lemonade stand! He’s been coming to the stand for the past few years, and we so appreciate all of his amazing support and help. Thank you so much Mr. Carmichael – you’re amazing!
Below, is a great picture of Joshua and I with some yellow balloons. And I don’t like balloons, but I held them… just for the picture – no other reason. But it’s a cute picture:
And then here is the flyer for the lemonade stand, so you can see all the invaluable supporters we have every year, that we really could never do the lemonade stand without. Our supporters mean the world to us, and they truly know the meaning of making a positive impact in the world, and supporting their community. They are the real believers in my lemonade stand, and in all my hard work, and I appreciate them so much. THANK YOU GUYS! And yes, 2012 also marked the year that Joshua took over the lemonade stand for the second year in a row. And truthfully, he did an incredible job, as I knew he would. Joshua makes me so proud as a big sister and I feel so privileged to be able to pass on the love and spirit of making a difference to the “next generation” (kidding, it’s the same generation, but still… younger kids). He now knows the importance of giving back to his community, and that will be something that he can carry on with him for the rest of his life.
