PHOTOS: St. James Girls Host Lemonade Fundraiser for 9/11 Memorial

The efforts of four St. James girls resulted in more than $200 being raised for the 9/11 memorial park in St. James.

Four girls quenched the thirst of drivers and runners Sunday afternoon while raising money for the St. James Fire District 9/11 memorial park by selling lemonade at the district's Jefferson Avenue location.

Megan and Bridget Leudesdorf, 6 and 8 years old respectively, and Paige and Jessica Skelley, both 8 years old, raised $200.50 for the memorial park. Although lemonade was 50 cents a cup, many customers paid more than that, including a few who gave the girls $20 and did not ask for change.

The girls were assisted by Artie Leudesdorf, firefighter in the district and father to Megan and Bridget, as well as their mother Colleen, and Karen Skelley, mother of Paige and Jessica.
