The Bashaw and District Chamber of Commerce is taking part in Lemonade Day on June 18, a free learning experience for children and youth to start, own and operate their own business.
Youth from Kindergarten to high school can register to participate. Registration opened on March 1 and will close June 1.
Once a child has registered, they pick a location to attend “Lemonade University.”
At university, each youth receives a backpack with an entrepreneur workbook and a facilitator guides them through the activities, such as creating a budget and repaying investors.
On June 18, all participants will set up their stands in their communities. They can also enter a couple of contests.

The chamber made a motion to provide coffee and tea should their host a live forum for the provincial elections. Contact the chamber if you would like to volunteer.
The chamber delayed agenda items from its February meeting due to a lack of attendance.
Hometown Days was briefly discussed, although no plans were made.
Members were reminded their membership fees were due Jan. 30.
The next meeting was to take place March 9.
