There was no shortage of workers to fill the open positions at Tuesday's lemonade sale at the Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale.

"We are raising money for our end of summer carnival next Friday," said CEO Tina Carpenter.

Carpenter said the Aug. 3 carnival will feature games, an inflatable and food. It is not open to the public, but limited to kids who participated in the summer programs.

The Boys and Girls Club serves about 120 students a day, offering programs in math, reading, science and team-building, as well as a daily lunch program.
