Cups of Sunshine

As dark clouds loomed over Peru Saturday afternoon, this lemonade stand brightened up the day for people waiting for the annual Applefest parade. Run by 7-year-old Anne Gibson (right), little sister Kiera Gibson, 5, (left) and neighbor Isabella Lamos, 5, the stand offered both powdered pink lemonade and freshly-squeezed yellow lemonade as a refreshing summer treat. Anne and Kiera’s mom Kirsten Pope explained that Anne had been asking to set up a lemonade stand for years and that the Applefest drew a great crowd for it. Isabella’s mom, Sara Lamos, also helped the girls with running their business. All proceeds earned went toward the Elmore SPCA, with the girls raising $97 from their stand by day’s end.
