Dear Friends,

For more than 140 years, individuals and families have gathered along the Lakeside shoreline to share a unique Chautauqua experience. Few communities have such a deep sense of place and purpose, and none have the same attributes as Lakeside.

For some, taking a healing walk along Ohio’s Most Beautiful Mile, relishing a Lakeside Symphony Orchestra performance or competing in tennis and shuffleboard game can define an experience. For others, it may be having three generations participate in a Family Discovery Program, contemplating an inspiring sermon or volunteering.

Lakeside possesses a unique power to transform the lives of those that experience it. Relationships are strengthened, lifelong learning is advanced, and mind, body and spirit are nurtured. This is our collective home, and it is truly one-of-a-kind thanks to Lakesiders like you.

This holiday season, as you gather with family and friends, share the spirit of Chautauqua. Reflect on how Lakeside influences your life and those around you, reminisce about your favorite Lakeside memories as a family, or inspire your friends and their children to make their own traditions at the lake. Give the gift of Lakeside.

On behalf of the entire Lakeside Chautauqua staff, we wish you a Merry Christmas and blessings this New Year!
