California girl, 5, cited for operating lemonade stand without a license


Good grief! A 5-year-old girl in Porterville, Calif., received a citation in late October for operating a lemonade stand without a license.

In June, Autumn Thomasson decided to operate the stand to raise money to pay for a new bike.

Gabby Dehaas, Autumn’s mother, got the word out on social media about her daughter’s idea, and in less than 24 hours the girl had enough money for a new ride.

“It meant so much to know she earned her own money, that Mom and Dad didn’t need to go buy her. She got to bring her own wallet and buy it herself and pay at the cash register,” DeHaas told Fox26.

But four months later, DeHaas received a letter from Porterville’s Finance Department with an image of her Facebook post. Enclosed was a citation, ordering the mom to pay for a business license for her daughter’s stand, Fox26 reported.
