May 14, we shall paintout but no lemons please!

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!!

Thanks Brian, the place looks like a great workout!
