Local siblings spend summer working together

While most siblings spend their summer arguing over who gets to control the TV remote, Russellville siblings Laurie, Jarrett and Morgan Hovater are spending their summer operating their own Tropical Sno shaved ice stand, which is located between the Franklin County Times office and Advance Auto Parts on U.S. 43.
Laurie Hovater, the oldest of the three, said she’s enjoying the time she’s getting to spend with her brother and sister.
“We like being around one another, so we’ve had a lot of fun,” she said.
The stand is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Wednesday from 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.; and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and from 7:15 p.m. – 9 p.m.

The stand will be closed next week while the Hovater siblings attend a mission trip to Nicaragua.
