Alahna McCarron, Hallee Brunette, Kate McCarron and Abigail McCarron.
The three girls' refreshment stand, known as HAT’s Lemonade (named after Hallee Brunette, Alahna McCarron and Travis Brunette), was set up at Bud’s Shop in Save in Somerset Plaza where they sold lemonade, cookies and brownies.
At the other end of the parking lot where Sebasticook Valley Federal Credit Union employees were holding Youth Day in conjunction with the Ending Hunger Program, the credit union staff invited the youngsters to sell lemonade at that event as well. Even though there were two different financial institutions supporting two different causes, they were able to pull together for the betterment of the community.
On Friday, July 6, the youngsters presented a $50 check to the Pittsfield Food Pantry.
Organizers wish to thank Kelley Carter, vice president of the Pittsfield branch of SVFCU, and Robin Chase, branch manager of Bangor Savings Bank, for their help and support.
