Deputy Buys Lemonade From Girl’s Stand, Returns With A Surprise
Lake County Sheriff Department
An Ohio deputy sheriff made a stop at a little girl's lemonade stand, then returned the next day. This time he wasn't there to buy lemonade. Yahoo News reports, Zach Ropos stopped to buy lemonade from a 9 year old girl named Gabrielle. When he asked what she planned to do with her earnings, Gabrielle replied she was saving for an ipad to help with schoolwork. She had given the little money she'd raised to her mother to buy gas for her car. Ropos was so impressed with the young lady, he decided to help. He had an old ipad at home, but it was outdated. The deputy persuaded a local store to donate toward a new tablet for Gabrielle, and Ropos presented it to her the next day. He said, "Seeing her face is how I remember Christmas when I was 5 years old. She couldn't stop smiling. Her smile was worth a million dollars."
