Kids Fined $500 For Lemonade Stand
Oh and get this, they were donating the money to charity too. I guess rules are rules in the D.C. area. And they won’t be broken by anyone. A group of kids were selling lemonade outside the Congressional Country Club (home of this year’s U.S. Open), and with the area around the U.S. Open being so small, Montgomery County put a ban on all vendors in the area for traffic and safety reasons. To be fair, the inspector did tell them to just pack it first, but the kids said no way because they were raising money for charity. Rules can be tough sometimes. In a case like this you’d like to see an exception being made, but you never know what that will lead too. For every person trying to do something nice out there, there are probably two using kids or the name of charity to make their own profit. Get the whole story at Yahoo Sports.
