Thumbs of the Week: Local girl raises money for deputy
Thumbs up to Caroline Freeman, a local girl who started a lemonade stand last weekend to raise money for the family of Dickson County sheriff’s Sgt. Daniel Baker, who was killed May 30 in the line of duty. Six-year-old Caroline Freeman raised $1,125 for Baker’s family in less than five hours at her lemonade stand at 1734 Wrencrest Drive in the Cambridge Woods subdivision in Mt. Juliet. According to Freeman’s mother, Cherish Piche, a few houses in the neighborhood had yard sales, and Freeman wanted to do a lemonade stand. The stand offered lemonade, bottled water, cookies, gourmet donuts, freeze pops and juice boxes. Several people stopped by just to donate to the cause and even more donated to the cause via PayPal.
