Thanks to five-year-old Leland Bastedo, and some thirsty individuals, NOTL Cats Rescue has 302 reasons to be grateful.
Leland, along with his three-year-old sister Ruby and parents Jen and Tim Bastedo, held a lemonade stand on Sept. 3, selling refreshing lemonade and Rice Krispie treats.
Together, they raised $302 for the town’s non-profit cat rescue group.
Seen in the photo above, on Sept. 10, Leland and Ruby presenting their earnings to NOTL Cats Rescue volunteer Erika Buchkowsky.
“NOTL Cats Rescue has been overwhelmed this year with many mama cats and kittens and is very grateful to the Bastedo family for their kindness in helping with desperately needed funds,” Buchkowsky said in an email to The Lake Report.
