On Aug. 8, individuals from the Ottawa County United Way’s ‘Til Next Time (TNT) program visited Lakeside to engage in the Chautauqua programming while investing quality time in the mentor/mentee relationships that TNT offers.

The TNT Mentoring Program was developed to help create and support one-on-one mentoring relationships between positive adult role models and youth facing challenges in their personal, social and academic lives.

In 2017, the Lakeside Men’s Bible Study Group had the desire to put their faith into action, which led to them forming a partnership with the TNT program. Read More

Don’t let the name fool you, there’s nothing old about Old Blue’s Lakehouse in Marblehead.

Between its collection of artisan goods, home décor, apparel and unique children’s toys, this boutique offers a fresh, exciting atmosphere where shoppers rarely leave emptyhanded.

Owners Kyra and Les Kulin say their store is “a welcoming place to come shop, chat and find yourself right at home.”

They purchased the building in 2017, not knowing what they’d house in it. While renovating, the couple decided to transform the space into a store. Read More

Sypherd’s Cycles, Lakeside’s bicycle shop, has been in operation since 1976, making it one of the oldest businesses in the community. Floyd Sypherd and his son, Tim, are co-owners of the family business.

The family’s decision to open a bicycle shop in Lakeside came from their original hardware store and bike shop, located in Akron, Ohio.

The Sypherds also recognized Lakeside needed a bike shop since the original one had closed several years before. The family has kept some items from Lakeside’s first bike shop, including its sign, which is still displayed. Read More

Darby and Greg Buehler recently became Lakeside homeowners in 2017, but they have a longtime connection to the Chautauqua community.

(L-R) Shirley Buehler (mother), Keith Winget (uncle) and Marty Winget (aunt).

Greg has been visiting since he was a child and later introduced Darby when they got married.

“My mother, Shirley, has been coming to Lakeside since she was a teenager in youth group,” says Greg. “After that, my uncle, Keith Winget, purchased a cottage in 1991. My parents, Don and Shirley Buehler, bought a place a few years later. At that time, Darby and I were married, and our children were young, so they’ve grown up coming to Lakeside.”

The family roots in Lakeside continue. “Keith’s son, Doug, and his wife, Lisa, bought a Lakeside house about 11 years ago. I would say the Winget family is probably who introduced everyone to Lakeside,” jokes Darby.

Greg adds, “Yes, my mom and Uncle Keith are the ones who have kept this connection alive.”

The Buehlers most cherished memory this summer has been introducing their first grandchild to Lakeside. “It was so exciting to have her here and to see our Lakeside legacy continue,” says Darby. Read More

How did you hear about Lakeside, or what is your Lakeside story? A friend told me about Lakeside when I was a freshman in college and he always talked about how great it was. So I knew a little bit about it from him. When I started applying for internships this past year I saw they had one open to work with the newspaper so I decided to apply. Now I’m here and I can definitely see why he thinks it’s so great!

What are you most looking forward to this summer at Lakeside? I’m really looking forward to expanding my knowledge in journalism this summer. This is the first time I’ve worked in a professional environment so I’m interested to see how everything works. I can’t wait to see how much my work improves over the summer. I’m also looking forward to exploring Lakeside and seeing everything it has to offer. Read More
