Dousing the scorch of fire with lemonade

Morgan Cole, 8, and Hannah Dial, 10 – and Bandit the dog – watch for customers at their lemonade and baked goods sale in front of The John Day Trading Post in Kimberly. The girls raised $283.32 Aug. 29-30, all of which will go to people who lost their homes in the Canyon Creek Complex fire.

KIMBERLY – A couple of girls have proven you are never too young to start up a profitable business – or make a positive difference.

It only took two days for Morgan Cole, 8, of Kimberly, and her cousin, Hannah Dial, 10, of Dayville, to raise $283.32 selling lemonade and baked goods in front of the John Day River Trading Post in Kimberly Aug. 29-30.

All the money will go to people and families who lost their homes in the Canyon Creek Complex fire.

Morgan’s mother, Kayla Cole, who owns the Trading Post said she is a “proud parent.”

She added the girls stayed strong through a second day of sales despite chillier temperatures.

The girls, who attend Monument School, will give the money to the Bank of Eastern Oregon John Day branch for the fire relief.
