Mayflies of Lake Erie

Starting in June, a large population of may­flies hatches from Lake Erie. The insects are harmless and typically live for 72 hours.

The mayfly popula­tion cannot be controlled since they breed in aquat­ic environments like Lake Erie. They can be best avoided by minimizing outdoor lighting, turning off lights or by switch­ing to yellow “bug light” bulbs.

Marblehead Bank opens Loan Production Office in Lakeside

The Marblehead Bank is pleased to announce the opening of a new Loan Production Office within the gates of Lakeside Chautauqua. The office, located at the Lakeview Historic Inn at 162 Walnut Ave., shares a unit with Lorenzo’s Culinary School.

The new location will be in operation until Saturday, Oct. 10. Office hours are from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays. William Tuttamore, the bank’s president, and Peter Schwager, the bank’s senior lender, will be available during open hours. In addition to the regular business hours, other appoint­ments can be made.

The Marblehead Bank has established special relationships with mortgage loan underwriters in the secondary market, which allows the bank to finance Lakeside property without concern of the underlying Lakeside lease that has given many other financ­ing sources difficulty.

In addition, the bank has developed other special loan prod­ucts, which provide for the financing of non-conforming Lake­side properties that may not qualify for secondary market financ­ing.

The Lakeside office of The Marblehead Bank will only be used for loan production. It is not a full banking facility and does not carry cash on the premises. The Marblehead Bank’s nearest location is located at 709 W. Main St. in Marblehead.

10th Anniversary of Artist-N-Cahoots

Artists-N-Cahoots, located at 222 Walnut Avenue, will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the ‘gallery of gifts’ during an open house from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday, May 23.

Artist Dave Smith will be doing a Plein Air painting demo in front of the store, and refreshments will be served. Lake­siders are also invited to enter a opportunity drawing for a chance to win a free gift.

Joyce Christman and Erin Rosson opened Artists-N-Ca­hoots over Memorial Day Weekend in 2006, with artwork from 13 artists. The original store was located in a small of­fice between the Lakeside Chautauqua Administration Office and Chautauqua Hall. However, the store quickly outgrew its space and relocated to the current storefront in time for the 2010 summer season.

The original artwork displayed this season represents more than 50 artists–nearly all of whom are instructors at the C. Kirk Rhein, Jr., Center for the Living Arts throughout the summer.

The mission of the store is “to provide the Lakeside com­munity and its guests with an upscale shop to showcase Lakeside artists, especially those artists who teach at the C. Kirk Rhein, Jr., Center for the Living Arts; to encourage art­ists to share their talents by teaching at the Rhein Center.”

Memorial Day Weekend Brunch

Many people are aware of the famous American military cemetery at Omaha Beach, Normandy, but few know there are 21 other U.S. military cemeteries in eight different coun­tries.

These cemeteries, created and maintained by the U.S. gov­ernment through the American Battle Monuments Commis­sion, are permanent memorial sites. Collectively they contain the remains of 125,000 Americans. There are 94,000 more names commemorated on the Walls of the Missing.

“Hallowed Grounds” is the first major documentary made about these shrines, and brings them all to life with powerful storytelling.
