A group of students at Roland-Story High School has a refreshing project to end the school year. The general business class will be operating a lemonade stand on Wednesday, May 10, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:44 p.m.

The class has been broken into teams, and the stand is part of the students’ final project.

“Each team is playing for a local non-profit and the winning team (with the most gross sales) will have the other teams’ sales donated to the winning group’s non-profit,” said business teacher, Jamie Spittler. “Each team will also be accepting donations that will go directly to that non-profit.”

Some of the non-profits in contention are Story County Animal Shelter, RSHS Art Program, Bliss Cancer Center Foundation and Blank Children’s Hospital Foundation.

“We feel that this will be a great community-building event and are welcoming the community to come buy lemonade or donate to the cause of their choice,” Spittler said.

The lemonade has been graciously donated by Anderson Erickson Dairy, and the students are coming up with their own twists and takes on the lemonade.

The lemonade stand will be located in the concession stand by the commons/lunchroom and in the surrounding main hall way from the southwest entrance.
