In memory and tribute to former teacher, Mr. Christopher Wolfe, Mrs. Kate Lane dedicated her Little Lancers lemonade stand to him. 

Wolfe taught Woodworking, Foundations of Technology, and Engineering. He was a huge part of the Lancer community both in academics and athletics.

He passed away suddenly from cancer soon before the 2016-2017 school year.

His impact extended to coaching. He coached basketball and golf for several years during his 15-year career as a teacher in Frederick County Public schools.

The lemonade stand was built by a former woodworking student, senior Justin Kleinmann. Justin took woodworking with Wolfe for Wood Shop 1, 2, and 3.

Lane asked Kleinmann to do this project because she heard good things about his skills.

The lemonade stand that Kleinmann built will be used to be used in Lane’s Child Development class for imaginative play by Little Lancers.

It took Kleinmann over a week to make this stand.  He built the stand in his garage the last week of the 2016 school year.

In Woodworking 2 with Mr.Wolfe, Kleinmann  made a bed frame. He said, “ The owner of Maryland Custom Cabinets saw it and asked me to work for him and his cabinet company.”

One day Justin also plans to open his own cabinet company.

Little Lancers will be starting school on October 3rd, and this lemonade stand will be put to use full time when they arrive.
