Ignoring the grim economic news across Connecticut, an enthusiastic band of entrepreneurs launched a lemonade stand on Southwest Road in Waterbury on July 2nd. From left to right is D’Archer Bartlett, 8, Nolan Gustafson and Sincere Bartlett, 11. The stand was set up across the street from Post University in the West End of Waterbury, and the kids would explode into a marketing frenzy with each passing car. At 25 cents a drink, the young entrepreneurs were offering up refreshments at a cost difficult to compete with. Photo by John Murray
