APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) - Summer school in the Fox Valley went outside to enjoy the summer weather while raising money for the Fox Valley Humane Association.

Fourth- and fifth-graders at the Boys & Girls Club washed cars and sold crisp cups of lemonade Friday afternoon.

It was part of a new "Pay It Forward" class, which emphasizes service projects benefiting the community.

"This a brand new summer school class that we have. We always do community service projects because we want to give back, but this is a specialized class dedicated towards that," Ross Mortensen, branch director at the Appleton Boys & Girls Club said.

We're told all of the kids enjoyed the beautiful weather Friday and had a lot of fun.
