Post IndependentGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Colorado Poolscapes of Glenwood Springs planned activities for nine children of employees last Thursday to participate in the national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work day. Service Manager Neil McComb explained the chemistry of water, including proper pH, chlorine levels and temperatures of spas. The Repair Manager, Charlie Chabin, demonstrated the delicate process of thawing frozen underground pipes. Activities also included each child electronically designing their own new backyard, including pools, spas and water features. The day ended with a field trip to pools and spas currently being constructed by Colorado Poolscapes to allow the children to see the stages of pool building.It was a full day allowing our staff of 30 to share their work experience with their children.

While it may have been too cold to sell Lemonade on May 1, which is National Lemonade Day, one local youth was using it to get ready for another busy summer. “I’m excited for selling more lemonade this summer,” says 9-year-old Ian Chaney. “It’s a fun way to meet your neighbors and make extra money.” Ian began selling lemonade two summers ago as a cure for boredom, and quickly learned about business and marketing. “My dad made me pay back expenses at the end of the day to teach me about business,” says the young entrepreneur. “He’s helped learn about marketing and taking care of customers.” This year, Ian is planning on adding snow cones, fruit flavorings, and Rock and Roll to the mix. His stand will be open weather permitting, and for special events. He says he’s taking the business much more seriously this summer, and wants it to grow. His stand is located at 918 Pitkin in Glenwood Springs. Sunday proved too cold for the free lemonade he had planned on offering, so he will offer his product free on another day soon to introduce himself to new customers. Lemonade Day is nationally and locally recognized program designed to each youth about starting and operating their own business.
