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 DeLeonâ€™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 â€śwas like a family member to us.â€ť
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. â€śItâ€™s a great things the girls are doing and we are very proud of them,â€ť said Walton.
