LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — In Lynchburg, a family opened up their corner lemonade stand, serving up a message along with several different flavors of lemonade.
The Polley family has been selling lemonade to neighbors and drivers passing by for five years. This year, however, the stand has a new sign: “Lemonade for all Shades.”
Lauren Polley, the oldest of the three Polley siblings, says during these uncertain times, they want to give people at least one safe place they can come to have a little something sweet.
“With everything that’s happening, now, we just want to make everyone feel safe during this time and just bring everybody together, peacefully,” Lauren said. “It just feels great that everybody likes our lemonade and likes to support us.”
Sunday, June 7 marked the first day of the Polley family’s lemonade for the summer. They say they’ll continue selling their lemonade on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
