Kids pour up sweet, refreshing support to Vernon SPCA

Lemonade stand proceeds donated to charity

When life gives you lemons, they say you should make lemonade. But in the case of Henry Cameron, Ana and Erica Lovelace and Hallie Cameron, they decided to squeeze more out of that cliché and raise some funds for a good cause.

These kids spent portions of their summer serving up refreshing lemonade and instead of buying comic books, video games and endless supplies of candy, they donated their proceeds to the Vernon SPCA.

A generous $200 was donated to Rachel Beaubien of the Vernon SPCA from funds earned from a couple of lemonade stands run throughout the summer months.

This sweet donation to the most vulnerable animals goes to show these kids don’t need any sweetener.
