There’s a new way to make lemonade with Lemons of Love in downtown Plymouth! We are readying our latest space at 607 Eastern Avenue.
The building will offer counseling services to those who receive a diagnosis, providing navigation to patients and their families.
The first floor will also offer a large space to fill care packages that will be distributed to hospitals in both the Froedtert and Aurora Health Systems.
In addition to our indoor space, we’ll be transforming our land on the banks of the Mullet River into a healing garden.
The historic building dating to the late 1800s was originally a wagonmaker’s home and shop. Meticulously restored in 1995, rebuilt from the foundation up, the location between Plank Road Distillery and the Plymouth Springs Fish Market features an original tin ceiling and lighting fixtures from the old Osthoff Resort. Lemons of Love hopes to rebuild the lives of those diagnosed with cancer in the same loving manner.
Lemons of Love will be using the space in several different ways in their efforts to be a positive force in the lives of those affected by cancer.
