Instead, the four donated the profits of their stand to the Save the Catwalk committee.
The four boys – brothers Connor and Crew VanBeen, along with Harrison Fog and Luke Lindeman – set up their lemonade stand at the corner of Sheldon Road and Grand Avenue.
Their business received a boost when a Harbor Transit trolley stopped at their stand, delivering dozens of customers.
They weren’t the only community-conscious youngsters trying to help save the catwalk. Just down the road in Central Park, the Fuller sisters — Mabel, Willa and Greta — set up their own lemonade stand, where they also sold cookies and banana bread. Their profits also went to the Save the Catwalk fund.
