Police officers in Midway shut down a lemonade stand run by three girls, saying the stand lacked a business license and required permits. The girls had been operating for one day.
MIDWAY, Ga. (AP) -- Three Georgia girls whose lemonade stand got a sour reception by their hometown police are reopening their summer business on Jekyll Island.
The Jekyll Island Authority invited the girls from Midway -- 14-year-old Kasity Dixon, 12-year-old Tiffany Cassin and 10-year-old Skylar Roberts -- to sell their lemonade at Summer Waves Water Park at the island state park. Island officials said the girls planned to be there Sunday.
The offer came after Midway police forced the girls to shut down their lemonade stand earlier this month. Police said the girls needed a business license, a peddler's permit and a food permit to sell drinks, even in their own yard.
Jekyll Island staff not only invited the girls, but built them a new lemonade stand.
