As I was making my way down to Bodin’s Native Crafts at Tobique First Nation to deliver copies of the Blackfly I passed by new business…. A cold drink stand being operated by a trio of cheerful and youthful entrepreneurs.
Cars were zipping in right and left as I drove by , so I waited till I was on my way back to meet the young businesswomen at the stand.
As I pulled up all, all three promptly offered me a choice of either raspberry flavoured or plain iced tea.
They weren’t charging for the tea, but were accepting tips and this was working out just great…. Everyone they served left a generous tip for the girls!
Lily, Treasure and Emily told me this was the first stand they’d opened this year, and that they planned to do this one day a week all through the summer.
Keep an eye out for the Iced Tea Stand on the Main Road heading down into the community, and take a pause to refresh yourself!
