Local girls set up lemonade stand to benefit Berry Family
Two local girls, Ayezha DeLeon (left) and Marissa Johnson (right), both 10 years-old, set up a stand to sell pickles and lemonade with the help of DeLeon’s mother, Diane Little. The girls wanted to raise money to help with funeral expenses for the Berry Family, who recently lost their family member, Michael Berry. Johnson said that he was a friend and he “was like a family member to us.”The girls started making the stand around 6:30 a.m. on Friday and set up shortly after on Hiawatha Street. By about 4:30 p.m. they had raised about $75. Mark Walton and Sandra Lewis stopped by the stand and gave a monetary donation. “It’s a great things the girls are doing and we are very proud of them,” said Walton.
