Lemonade stand building workshop Saturday

Rich and Scott Sitcer, two master builders from Coxsackie, are helping kick off Greene County's drive to have a successful Lemonade Day on May 1 by hosting a lemonade stand building workshop over the next two weekends. The Sitcers will lead sessions on building stands at the GNH Lumber centers in Coxsackie at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 9, and in Greenville on Sunday, April 17, again at 9:00 a.m. While participants will not be building their own stand at the workshop, this free workshop will address materials and the secrets of making your stand different from the rest. "“My brother Scott and I wanted to support Lemonade Day because it shows kids the results of a good work ethic,” said Rich Sitcer. “The harder you work at something, the more successful you’re going to be. I know because that’s how we’ve run our own business since the beginning. And using a local business like GNH shows how important small businesses are.” Both workshops will present three full-scale models to illustrate some of what it will take to build a winning stand. “I challenged my brother, as well as our co-worker Barrett and even myself to come up with our own stands to show.” One of three contests Lemonade Day entrepreneurs are eligible to win is for the Best Lemonade Stand Contest by sending pictures in after the event Sunday May 1. Details are provided in the workbooks young entrepreneurs find in their free bright yellow backpacks once they sign up. “Remember you can still signup at any of our sixteen locations,” said Bob Phibbs, Lemonade Day Greene County Champion. “Those include The Bank of Greene County, the National Bank of Coxsackie, Greene Business Alliance, Catskill Community Center, Big Brothers and Big Sisters and the Greene County YMCA. Lemonade Day is Sunday May 1.
