Scene in Easton: A Young Entrepreneur Takes Advantage of the Heat Wave

Sydnay Dennis, 10, sits by her lemonade stand outside her parents' hair salon, Sydlex Styles, on Ferry Street in Downtown Easton Thursday afternoon.
While most that could retreated indoors to cool, air conditioned spaces in Thursday's record temperatures, Sydnay Dennis, 10, saw the continuing heat wave as an opportunity to make some extra cash selling bottled water, lemonade, and face paint.

The West Ward tween said she plans on running the stand in front of her parents' salon throughout the summer while she's off from school. While relatively few people were seen walking around Easton's Downtown Thursday, by midafternoon she'd made about $15 from thirsty passersby, she said.

Sydnay's venture is good practice for what will undoubtedly be a bright future as an entrepreneur when she grows up.

"I want to run my own lemonade and ice cream shop," she said.
