I am a 17-year-old Junior at Hough High School. I also helped to found the charity E2D Inc! Saturday is a huge day for E2D. I need to tell you all about it. 3rd Annual E2D Lemonade Stand Day – “Squeezing the Digital Divide!” Saturday, May 16th, 9am-12pm – All over Davidson, Cornelius and Huntersville.
What is the appropriate price for a cup of lemonade? Not just any lemonade, but the kind that’s made of water and powder that little kids sell on the street corner in small plastic cups? Before you answer, what if I promised you this cup of lemonade would be equally the most satisfying and gratifying lemonade you’ve ever had?
The proceeds from these lemonade stands won’t end up in the bottom of piggy bank or spent on candy and gum. No! This lemonade will positively transform the lives of some young students forever. (Now this may be the first time you’ve heard of a lemonade stand doing that!)
[Among other spots, volunteers will have a stand set up at the ‘Tawba Walk in downtown Cornelius Saturday afternoon. Details on that event in our Events Calendar. See more about the 2014 Lemonade Stand day on CorneliusNews.net.] Read the full story

A little bit of rain didn’t dampen the fun and fundraising last weekend as the 2015 Cornelius-Huntersville Relay for Life raised just under $54,000 for the American Cancer Society. Hundreds of participants and spectators joined the overnight walk Friday, May 1, and Saturday, May 2, at the Bailey Middle School track.

By DAVID BORAKS
DAVIDSON – Cornelius Mayor Chuck Travis calls the Davidson Cornelius Child Development Center “an amazing story.” Amazing, because the center keeps hitting milestones on its road back from near failure in 2009, including breaking into the black financial in 2014, for the first time in years.
Davidson Mayor John Woods says the nearly 50-year-old center is “an incredibly important asset in our communities.” Among other things, it’s the area’s only remaining N.C. five-star sliding-scale day care, available to families regardless of their income. Read the full story
