has always supported small
businesses, and now they are supporting the original small business,
helping children learn responsible business practices and money smarts, by
funding their lemonade stands.
This summer, children 13 years of age and younger can apply for $10
start-up capital, courtesy of Pinnacle Bank, to launch their lemonade
stand. Pinnacle Bank will not only supply the $10, but also a starter kit,
complete with a guide to becoming a successful “Self Made Million-ade”
business owner, 20 cups and napkins, lemonade packets, lemonade stand
poster, advertising flyers and a Pinnacle Bank money bag.
“Pinnacle Bank has always focused on helping local businesses succeed and
nothing beats the experience of starting your own business” said Doug
Weedin, President & CEO of Pinnacle Bank – Wyoming. “We believe when kids
learn the ins and outs of business-building it will help develop some
important real-world skills. No matter what careers they end up in, they
need business savvy and understanding of good money habits and practices.”
The entire lemonade stand promotion is designed for children to easily
understand and use. First, they are asked to complete a very simple Capital

which gives them best business practice tips, such as goal setting, saving
money, investing back into their business and much more.
Children will also receive a 24”x18” lemonade stand poster they can
personalize with their name and prices, customizable advertising flyers to
distribute to family and friends, and lemonade stand supplies.
In conjunction with the “Self Made Million-ade” lemonade stand promotion,
Pinnacle Bank will also be running a photo contest. They are encouraging
