BLUEFIELD, WV (WVNS) — Temperatures are climbing and that means those in Bluefield are watching for a Lemonade Day, but things will be different this year due to COVID-19.
Typically, when temperatures are recorded at 90 degrees at the Mercer County Airport, the Chamber of Commerce of the Two Virginias holds a Lemonade Day where people can come get free lemonade.
This year, President and CEO of the Chamber, Jeff Disibbio, said they will not be holding Lemonade Days due to COVID-19 concerns. Disibbio said they want to protect the community and the volunteers who would be handing out the lemonade.
“I promise you that we will try to come back and I feel strongly that we will come back with a bigger and better plan to celebrate Lemonade Day on a little bit grander scale,” Disibbio said.
The Chamber looks forward to holding the event next summer.
