Groton — After asking to put their stand on the lawn of family friend Leslie Forbes, Aiyanna Massie, 10, left, of Swansea, Mass., and her cousin Ian Ambroise, 12, of Groton were selling lemonade Thursday.
The kids asked to use Forbes' lawn because she lives closer to Eastern Point Beach. The money they raise will go toward Aiyanna's trip to Florida with her gymnastics team.
