Support the Lakeside Fund this December

Staff Blogger: Gretchen Colón, Vice President of Advancement & Communications


The world is moving at rapid speed, and schedules are full throughout the day. You probably spend your time connected through technology.

However, Lakeside Chautauqua encourages us to slow our pace and spark deep, meaningful conversations with one another. It’s also a special place that provides experiences for growth.

At Lakeside, families slow the pace by gathering for worship to hear thought-provoking messages. Individuals listen to the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra play. Children share their creative spark at the Rhein Center. Adults are challenged by new thoughts and ideas in Chautauqua Hall. Youth gather for recreational activities.

Experiencing these cherished practices together is important to the spirit of Chautauqua.

Thanks to the generosity of many Lakesiders each year, thousands of families and individuals have unplugged and renewed their spirit along the Lake Erie shore.

You’re invited to give a gift online to the Lakeside Fund in support of these enriching experiences.

Your Lakeside Fund gift supports the signature Chautauqua program, as well as the maintenance of historic buildings and beautiful grounds. Thank you for your support.
