Lemon Boss 2017 Wrap-Up


At Hills Bank, we support local businesses of all shapes and sizes. During our fourth year of Lemon Boss, we helped kids 5-12 years old start their own businesses. This was a great opportunity to teach kids about finances, customer service, and business all while spending quality time with family and friends.

Lemon Bosses can bring completed Income Statement Sheets back to any Hills Bank location before August 21st to receive a Lemon Boss Certificate of Completion and get your photo on the Lemon Boss Hall of Fame!

Here are a few photos that were shared with us via email and our social media channels. This program has given numerous young entrepreneurs around the Corridor the opportunity to learn how to run their own business, and they have been excited to share their success with us!

We would like to extend a special thank you to all the young entrepreneurs who participated in this year’s program. Our employees enjoyed supporting Lemon Bosses in our communities this summer!

Business hours ran from 4:00-5:00 pm—prime time to catch the folks from the operations center walking to their cars.
