Elementary Entrepreneur


It was a summer of brisk business according to young entrepreneur Rylan Barbato, 6, of Middletown. The Corey Lane resident, seen here manning his lemonade stand near his home on Aug. 21, said he had fun serving neighbors and neighborhood workers during his summer vacation and that he made some money, too. Rylan plans to save his profits for a future college education, but, in the meantime, anxiously awaits the start of first grade at Aquidneck School next week. Remember, public schools are back in session for most Aquidneck Island students on Thurs., Sept. 5. Drive carefully! (Photo by Kirby Varacalli)
