Lemonade stand at Columbus courthouse raises funds for troops

Updated:

Second and third grade students in Columbus, Kansas are supporting our troops this summer with lemonade.

The Columbus courthouse was host today to a lemonade stand run by kids from Highland Elementary School.

A portion of the proceeds will go towards care packages for soldiers.

The students are also hoping to fund the construction of a fence for a dog at the local nursing home.

Today's stand brought in $220 within about an hour's time.

"I hope it will just instill in them, just, character for life, just to be able to serve other people," says Shari Napier, a teacher at the school.

The group plans on hosting another lemonade stand at the courthouse on July 30.
