Construction “Lemonade”

Hard hats in Middleton

Middleton, WI is making lemonade from their construction lemons… a popular green space downtown is under construction all summer, including loss of parking/access for local businesses, occasional road closures for utility work, the whole thing. But they are using that as the catalyst for a “Hard Hat Club” for kids with activities planned throughout the summer. Kids get a bag of swag from local businesses including a “hard” hat, there’s a construction themed storywalk and various events to bring people to various businesses all summer.

Hard Hat Club membership kits are available for pickup at the location selected during registration.
Each kit is chock full of goodies, generously donated by a number of
