Lemonade stand raises shelter funds
Ben’s annual Lemonade Stand, held Saturday, Aug. 7, on Maureen Circle, raised a record-breaking $3,871 for the Burrillville Animal Shelter, funds used to purchase food, medicine and other needed supplies for the animals in their care.
The community event has been organized by Mapleville resident Benjamin St. Pierre every year, for the past 12 consecutive years. In 2021, it featured dozens of raffles and activities thanks to support from local businesses and individuals. The family thanked all who helped out this week for the support.
