Businesses stay cool while working in heatwave


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The owners of Bobby Que’s have been hard at work for years.

“We’ve done barbecue since 2008, but this is our fourth year having the trailer,” said Nikki Flack.

Their years of experience shows that they’re used to working in the heat.

“Whatever the temperature is outside, it’s typically fifteen to twenty degrees hotter in here,” she said.

Knowing that, they make sure to be prepared with items needed to keep them cool.

“We have salt sticks, they’re like electrolyte replacers. We have Pedialyte pops we stock up on and we also have our cold snaps,” Flack added.

For Wabash Valley Lemonade Day, Addison Perry and Reese Kirchner were serving up cool drinks at their ‘Out of this World’ stand in front of the Terre Haute Children’s Museum.

“We have two types of flavors. We have blueberry flavor and we also have original,” Kirchner said.

While they were working hard Saturday, they were also cooling down.

“We have a fan then we’ve been drinking some of the lemonade too,” said Kirchner.

Their lemonade stand raised over $300 for the Terre Haute Humane Society, which passed their $150 goal.

There were around 70 lemonade stands and more than 200 kids raising money for causes of their choice.

The stands helped the kids to learn about business and entrepreneurship.
