When life gives you lemons…you hold a fundraiser

Grafton – Nine-year-old Tyler Hardiman is our kind of guy. Looking for a way to give back, Tyler has set a up a lemonade stand for the last four years with the goal of raising funds for those in need. The first year he raised $1,600 for a Grafton police officer battling cancer. This year, as well as the last two, he has raised over $9,000 for Project New Hope, an organization that assists veterans dealing with the effects of stress and traumatic brain injuries.

Tyler’s efforts were supported by many in the community, including the Grafton Police Department, who once again turned out in droves to support the young philanthropist.
