Sid the OCES Lobster has a new home!
OCES is a sponsor of one of the twenty-nine lobsters that greet visitors along the streets of Plymouth as part of an outdoor arts initiative called “The Plymouth Lobster Crawl”.

He now has a new “perch”, prompted by a disappointing circumstance – with a happy ending.
Sid is right in front of the Greater Plymouth Performing Arts Center – also known as the Spire Center for the Performing Arts, at 25 1/2 Court Street (at the corner of Brewster Street), right in the heart of historic downtown Plymouth. Read more.
