Maple Road held its TREP$ Marketplace on Dec. 2 and what a night it was!

Pamela DeWaal, one of the founders of the TREP$ program, was on hand to cut the ribbon to the marketplace. And then it was all business (with lots of fun) for the fifth and sixth graders who participated.

About 40 Maple Road fifth and sixth graders had their first foray into the business world, learning, throughout a six-week workshop, everything about running their own business, from deciding on the product, to costs, to marketing and finally to selling their product.

The Marketplace was packed with supporters buying gifts for the holidays. Many of the student entrepreneurs sold out of their products. There was a huge array of products to choose from, including jams and jellies, custom ornaments, fudge, artwork and even deer antler products.

Most importantly, the students became successful entrepreneurs.
