The “Dog Tag” – Ella’s Lemonade Stand

Ella's Fearless Heroes Lemonade Stand

Welcome to the Dog Tag, Episode V, Season 1, a podcast by the St. Charles County Veterans Museum.

Ella was inspired by her grandpa Ken and his five brothers, all of whom served in the military. Ella has promised to do the stand every year until she graduates. In the last 7 years, Ella’s little lemonade stand helped raise funds for Missouri Military Memorial Foundation, Fallen Heroes Dream Ride, Missouri Patriot Guard, St. Charles County Veterans Museum, BackStoppers and the local VFW.

It has been amazing how the community has come together to raise over $120,000 to remember her heroes; our fallen military personnel and First Responders. One hundred percent of all donations go direct to the organizations.

With college ahead, we can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds for this patriotic dynamo.
