Photo of the Day: Jim Sullivan of Sullivan’s Fruit Stand


Today’s Photo of the Day is courtesy of Jim Sullivan, who mans Sullivan’s Fruit Stand all summer at 14325 Center Road, just north of Mapleton on the west side of the road (the old Roger and Leona Kitchen place for longtime OMPers).

Jim is married to Shirley (Cosgrove), and together they oversee Sullivan’s Fruit Stand, which features a wide assortment of fresh fruits and veggies in season, along with a freezer stocked with assorted ice cream. And the stand itself is always so lovely, with beautiful flowers and cheery signs, like the PEACE sign in the above photo.

Stop in and say hi to Jim and Shirley, who Tim and I are so happy to call our treasured lifelong friends. These two are the kind of friends who would give you the shirt off their back, and I especially looked forward to Shirley’s encouraging text messages when Tim and I were in Ann Arbor during our recent medical crisis. We love you guys.
