Thank You Lakeside

Dear Lakeside:

Thank you for making possible Four Days at Lakeside Chautauqua with The Friends, June 27-30, 2015. We had an amazing trip, with scenic views, memorable weather, wonderful camaraderie, delicious food, informative lectures, enduring memories and rugged off-site excursions. We were so fortunate to have spent time with Amanda Patton in the beautiful Ohio setting of Lakeside. Thank you, Lakeside Chautauqua leadership, for making this unique trip possible! (Please extend our thanks to all involved; we know there were many “behind the scenes.” We are grateful for everyone’s efforts, especially with the added challenges of inclement weather.) The meals and overall service throughout the stay were exceptional.

There are some photos from our Lakeside weekend posted on a Shutterfly® Share Site, beginning with Amanda Patton’s arrival at the Ohio Governor’s Residence and Heritage Garden and including some of her accompanying visits to area gardens.
