Boston Students Celebrate Lemonade Day

BOSTON (CBS) – Some Boston Public School students celebrated Lemonade Day on Sunday.

Seven lemonade stands were set up around Boston, which was one of 31 cities around America to celebrate the day.

This was part of a nationwide initiative that teaches children how to budget, develop a business plan, and foster customer relations — the basic skills necessary to start a business.

The project was sponsored locally by Babson College.

Mayor Tom Menino said the lemonade profits made Sunday will be donated to The Jimmy Fund.
