These Summerland siblings are selling lemomade for a good cause
Mitchell Jonson, his brother Malcolm and his sister Maria were all born in Lebanon.
They now call Summerland home but the siblings still feel a strong connection to their birth country, and wanted to do some good in its time of need. With the help of his grandfather, Mitchell built a lemonade stand to support families in need back in Lebanon.
Walking up to the end of Mayne place, potential customers will see Mitchell, standing between the Lebanese and Canadian flags. A black and silver sign reads “welcome” in Arabic, while a whiteboard shows the three flavours available at his lemon-AID stand.
Mitchell will be serving pink, old-fashioned and mint lemonade for the rest of the summer, taking some time off for when his family goes out camping. He hopes to raise $350 to support Heart For Lebanon before he goes back to school.
Mitchell’s stand is located at the end of Mayne Place in Summerland.
