Ballston Spa Lemonade Stand Back In Business
After being shut down by the New York State Department of Health last month, a Ballston Spa boy reopened his lemonade stand Saturday.
It was a big story when it came out, and honestly a story that was hard to believe when the Department of Health shut down a 7 year old's lemonade stand last month. According to WNYT, that lemonade stand is now back up and running! Brendan Mulvaney reopened his lemonade stand yesterday, all to support a great cause.
WNYT says he was raising money to help his friend Madison, who is suffering from Blount's disease. Many public officials attended the reopening, including Senator Jim Tedisco who gave Brendan a $100 bill. Montauk Beverage all the way down in Long Island even donated bottled lemonade for Brendan to sell.
The craziest thing about this whole episode? WNYT says children up to 14 do not need a permit to operate a lemonade stand. Turns out Brendan's stand should have never been shut down in the first plase.
