Lemonade Brigade alert - and a programming note

Results just in from a lemonade stand late last month in Myers Park:

The Holderness sisters – Zoe (12), Emily (8) and Sue (6) (above with friends) raised $59.82 for the Council for Children’s Rights.

"The highlight for me," said mom, Sara, "was my daughters' surprise and joy when one
customer gave them a twenty dollar bill and told them to keep the change for the children.

Congrats on a great effort. To see a picture of the stand, go to The Cliff on

A programming note: I'm headed for some vacation and am leaving The Cliff in the very capable hands of Observer staffer David Perlmutt. Please send him lemonade updates - or any story you have about nonprofits.
