Grace Johnson and Emily McCrea are two local 6th graders, who enjoy swimming, playing softball, and most everything that best friends like to do together in the summer. Something that makes them unique is an event that they host each summer around the fourth of July called "Little John's lemonade Stand". The pair, who are now 11, started the stand when they were just 5 years old.

McCrea says the funds raised have helped several local kids through the last several years who have been battling cancer.

Johnson says the stand is named after a special boy who not only their friend, but someone extra special. Johnson said that "little John" was not only their classmate, but also Emily's cousin.

Grace and Emily both agree that they along with their family enjoy this event each year that only happens for just one day at Steuben County's Lake Gage.

In a tragedy unrelated to cancer, the girls along with their family, lost someone special to them recently in a car accident. They agree that despite any challenge in life, this yearly event is a "must do" for them and their families because it reminds people that there are still good people in the world because each year they get to celebrate all the lives of the people who the lemonade stand has touched.

This year's proceeds from the lemonade stand will benefit Olivia Stoy. Emily and Grace will be serving lemonade for any donation at 6350 West Orland Road on Lake Gage from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
