LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Mercede Kitts may not sing a chant as she sells her ice cold lemonade today, but if you stop by and make a purchase, she just might. Young Mercede, a 3rd grader at Valley View School, came up with the idea that she would like to sell lemonade in order to buy hygiene packets for the homeless.  She’s asking you to stop by her lemonade stand at JR’s Tires and buy some lemonade or drop off a donation or a hygiene product.  JR’s Tires is located between the car wash and the Sonic.

Mercede’s lemonade stand opens Thursday morning at 10 am.

Mercede’s lemonade stand will be set up under a big gray canopy on the JR’s lot Thursday from 10 am until 3 pm.  Just look for the balloons.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 08/06/2020-6AM)
