Cool off with a glass of lemonade

It is difficult to believe it is already time again for Mae & Friends’ Lemonade Stand. In fact, this will be the sixth year for the stand.

This has become an annual tradition for several young girls who love animals and want to do something to help the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society. More than $8,000 has been raised since the stand began in 2008.

This year, the girls are trying something new and will be selling T-shirts along with their delicious lemonade and home-baked goodies.

The T-shirts are $15 and were designed by Carol Ann Riley, Inc.

There will be youth and adult sizes available.

Mae & Friends’ Sixth-annual Lemonade Stand will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, and will be located in front of the Natchez Convention Center on Canal Street.

Mae Holyoak, Sophie Webber, Taylor Baroni, Allie Feltus, Annalyce Riley, Addison Laird, Anabella Laird, Olivia Bowlin and Ali Fury will be ready to serve you a refreshing glass of lemonade along with something for your sweet tooth and also sell you a T-shirt to help promote their cause to help animals in need.

The Lemonade Girls really want to thank the Natchez Food & Wine Festival for making them a part of an incredible weekend here in Natchez.

They also want to thank the 53 businesses and individuals who have sponsored the stand this year which will be listed on the back of the T-shirts. The community always comes together to help those in need, and we greatly appreciate each of you who helps us spread the word about the stand, visit the stand or support the shelter with a donation.

All proceeds from the lemonade stand are donated to the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society to help with its daily operating expenses, medical care for the animals, transport program and adoption sponsorships. We hope to see you next from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, located in front of the Natchez Convention Center on Main Street at Mae & Friends’ Sixth-annual Lemonade Stand!
