Hometown gathering: Attendance up at jamboree

July 16, 2012

CRIDERSVILLE — Two young entrepreneurs say they not only enjoyed watching the Cridersville Fireman’s Jamboree parade, but they helped parade attendees stay hydrated.

Abigail and Leah Ranchel sat along Cridersville’s Main Street at their lemonade stand, as they served fresh, cold lemonade for 25 cents per cup.

“We did this to get some money. We get to sell lemonade, and it’s a great day to do that. I love to sell lemonade,” seven-year-old Leah said. “We did this last year for the parade, too.”
