Alex Stops by Hy-Vee…

As the local spokesperson for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, Gordon wanted to be a part of the annual “Alex’s Lemonade Weekend” on June 6-7. Unfortunately, the team is on the road in New York at that time…so, the local chapter of the national program held a pre-event lemonade stand at a Hy-Vee in Overland Park, Kan., so our Alex could stop by!

If you missed Alex and the lemonade stand this past weekend, you can still stop by one of the Alex’s Lemonade Stands this weekend, June 6-7, at any Kansas City area Hy-Vee stores as part of the national Alex’s Lemonade Weekend.

Happy 1st Birthday, Kaine and Kaleb!
