May 1, as a lot of drinks were sold, and children learned a few business lessons. This is the first year the annual event was held in New York, and stands were all over the county. Children reported brisk sales, and several towns offered multiple flavors. In Greenville, there were four stands within a stone's throw of the intersection of Routes 81 and 32. In Coxsackie, I counted eight stands, and probably missed a few. Prices ranged from 75 cents to $3, and flavors included pink, strawberry, and mango. Below, we have interviews with children running stands in Catskill, Athens, Coxsackie, and Greenville, though there was lemonade everywhere in Greene County on Sunday.[caption id="attachment_11129" align="alignright" width="224" caption="Catskill Girl Scouts set up this stand on Route 9W for Lemonade Day."][/caption]
