Sister and brother Alexandra and Miles Dasker host a lemonade stand outside their home on Hemlock Street. While the Dasker family spend most of their days in Lake Oswego, Alexandra’s mother Melissa Dasker said her daughter had the idea after seeing all of the donation buckets around downtown shops for the Cannon Beach Academy.
“She’s known all about the troubles the academy has been having every time we visit, so I think she saw it as a need.”
She set up shop two weeks ago on a sunny Sunday morning outside of the Cannon Beach community church, her mother said, and raised about $30. “I think it caught her interest because she likes to work with kids, they’re important to her.”
Sally Steidel, a member of the academy board, received the donation and said she thought her effort was superb. “This is so special to us because of the struggle we’ve had to get the school started.”
