Also being recognized Thursday evening during the games was the Lemonade Stand Girls. The Plymouth Boys Basketball team had a fundraising golf tournament hosted by the Plymouth Country Club during the fall of 2013.
During the tournament, three girls took it upon themselves to help raise even more money. They sat up a lemonade stand during the tournament and sold glasses of lemonade to the players. All proceeds were donated to the boy’s basketball team.
The Lemonade Girls recognized last night were Ella Hissong, Oliva Newcomb, and Brenna Large.
