Back in 2016, a group of Verona elementary school children created a community service group called Verona Kids Rock and held a lemonade stand. They added their own twist to the time-honored fundraising idea by not only selling lemonade, but hand delivering it door-to-door with a friendly smile.

Four years later, many of the original members of Verona Kids Rock have moved on to H.B. Whitehorne Middle School and so they decided that they needed a new name. They are now #VERONAROCKS and this past Saturday, while families picked up t-shirts with the group’s new name, they decided to add a lemonade stand once again. This time, the kids recruited customers by riding bikes throughout their neighborhood and raised $275. The money was donated yesterday to the HBW Kindness Campaign, which was created to honor the community spirit of the school’s namesake, Dr. Henry B. Whitehorne.
