During the summer months, there are few sights more pleasing than a group of children running their own lemonade stand. Gina Martin can certainly relate to that, as her son Jacob opened a stand to raise money for a new air conditioner in June 2018. However, when a customer threatened to shut it down, local police became involved.
A resident of Gladstone, Missouri, Jacob had one thing on his mind as his birthday approached in the summer of 2018. Knowing that he wanted a lemonade stand, his sister bought one for him as a gift, likely delighting the eight-year-old. Next, he put up the stand in his mom’s front yard.
