Our names are Emily Taggart, Emma and Charlotte Spies, and Ashley and Olivia O’Brien! We all knew Kyle St. Clair because he lived just a few houses down from us. Growing up here, we’d see many ambulances go to his house, we saw many nurses come and go, and sometimes we’d see Kyle playing outside. This thousand-dollar lemonade stand started with one of us wanting a pair of flip-flops (yes, flip-flops!). Then we heard about this really nice guy, Pilot Tom, who started flying Kyle to and from big surgeries. This lead to learning more about him and Angel Flight. It was really cool to learn that Pilot Tom didn’t get paid to fly Kyle, he did it because it was helping someone who needed it. After hearing about this the game plan for the lemonade stand changed; now it was for Kyle and other people who needed our help. On the day of the first lemonade stand there we were with “Country Time” lemonade powder and a whole lot of love from our community. To this day our little stand as grown to include a bounce house (Kyle’s favorite!), a dunk tank, many raffle prizes, tons of sweet treats, and of course plenty of lemonade. We all put so much work into pulling this off, so when the big day arrives, it’s amazing. The amount of love and support from our community has been outstanding. In 2012, Pilot Tom brought us to the Evening of Angels Gala. This was huge for us. Not only were we invited up on stage for a small speech, but we also received a standing ovation. To date we’ve supported 24 flights and this will continue to grow with our lemonade stand.
