On Saturday, you may see some lemonade stands pop up around town.
Here's what they are all about:
Stand with other Arizona children and parents to raise awareness of the crisis in K-12 education and to support Proposition 100. On May 8, 2010, be one of the 100 Stands for Education selling lemonade to support Arizona public education and to spread the message: YES on 100.
This family-friendly program benefits local schools and gets the word out on the importance of Prop 100 to public education. All lemonade sale proceeds are donated to the local public school of your choice.
Prop 100, which is on the May 18, 2010 ballot, establishes a temporary 1¢ sales tax. 2/3 of the revenue from the temporary 1¢ tax goes directly to K-12 education. The balance benefits public safety and social services.
