FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - Lemonade Day returns to Fort Wayne this May. It's a way for kids to learn how to start, own and operate their own business. But it doesn't end with learning about business. While that aspect alone will help kids experience valuable lessons for life, the organizers behind Lemonade Day will also encourage kids to spend a little, save a little and share a little of their hard earned proceeds.
