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”. The OCES lobster, Sid, which stands for “Supporting Independence and Dignity”, was originally showcased at Nelson Park on the Plymouth waterfront. 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.
