Cool, Sweet, Lemony Entrepreneurs at MAC FCU


Fairbanks, Alaska, June 10, 2017 -  Lemonade Day at MAC Federal Credit Union 

Michael Holthouse founded Lemonade Day with the idea that teaching today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs will help them realize their dreams and potential, if they can learn to work hard, take responsibility and act as good stewards of their resources. This idea is implemented through a simple idea of operating a lemonade stand. 2017 marks 10 sweet years, of teaching kid’s business skills, responsibility, financial literacy, goal setting, and teamwork. 

MAC Federal Credit Union believes in these same values and was delighted to host Carson & Emma’s Lemonade and Treats at our 10th Ave branch located in downtown Fairbanks. These two young entrepreneurs; Carson 6 years old, and Emma 4 years old, got the opportunity to brand their own stand, figure out what they wanted to sell and for how much in order to gain a profit, learn how money relates to the world around them, engage the public, learn eye contact, and how provide good customer service. 

Our members enjoyed the young smiling faces, and cool, sweet refreshing lemonade, along with the rice crispy treats. One member commented “Some of the best rice crispy treats I have tasted!” Lemonade Day at MAC Federal Credit Union was sweet indeed.
