Brian Meyer has gotten a city permit for us to have our paintout at the Lemon Grove Trolley Park next to the “LEMON!” The station has some unique architecture with a tower on the depot. The depot is surrounded by a promenade that includes a plaza, park, and two windmills. Every Saturday there is also a Certified Farmers Market that vendors offer organic produce, handmade crafts, and other items. I think Starbucks is close by!!
