Did you know that kids lemonade stands in Denver are illegal? My family learned this the hard way when my three little boys' neighborhood charity lemonade stand was shut down by police over Memorial Day when somebody complained about us and we were told that we needed multiple permits.

In 2017, Austin Texas and the state of Utah signed laws to make occasional childhood lemonade stands safe and legal for our kids. Our kids deserve this protection in Denver too!

Even the New York Times recently took a Stand for Lemonade!

July 2018 NYTimes Lemonade Article

A childhood lemonade stand is symbolic of many of the values that this country was founded upon, including valuable lessons of entrepreneurship and charity. We want to encourage the future leaders of our nation. Did you have to worry about permit laws during your childhood lemonade stands? I know that thought never occurred to me, until we learned the hard way.

Thank you for signing this!
