On Friday, Jan. 3, the Friedeck family hosted a Lemonade Sale at Silver Star Food Stores, located at 909 S. Cameron Street, in hopes to raise funds to open up a Little Free Library on the Southside of Alice.

Elliot Faye and Elena Lennox who attend St. Elizabeth School feel that reading should be for all and wanted to do a project for the community, according to their mother Amanda Sue Friedeck.

Amanda promotes community outreach assisted them for the big day. Together, the girls raised $200 in sales for the day thanks to the support of the community believing in the project.

The family is halfway to their full goal of $400 to get the Southside Little Free Library ordered from the Little Free Library organization.
