Kids donate lemonade stand proceeds to Bath Library, EMS

From the Friends of the Bath Community Library Board

BATH — For the second year, Harry and Carolyn Wetmore’s grandchildren have demonstrated entrepreneurial skills, as well as generosity toward those who serve the citizens of Bath and the surrounding area.

During the first week of July, Lucy Anne Wetmore from Raleigh, and Ava Kate, Noah, and Andrew Arkader from Haverford, Pennsylvania, opened a lemonade stand in the Wetmore’s front yard and worked hard to net a total of $160.

On Saturday, July 7, $80 checks were presented to Ruth Petersen, Chair of the Friends of the Bath Community Library Board and to the Bath EMS. At the request of the children, the Library donation will be used to purchase additional children’s books.
The Friends of Bath Community Library support the improvement of the Library through the purchase of books, programs, equipment, furniture, and supplies. The donation from these young role models and good citizens is greatly appreciated — a perfect way to celebrate the birthday of our nation.
The Wetmore grandchildren personally thank friends and neighbors from Bath and Washington for their continued, generous support.
