Staff Blogger: Jessica Kidd, Advancement Manager   As Lakeside Chautauqua joins #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving on December 2, 2014, we invite you to share the spirit of giving with your own children or grandchildren.

Sitting only 50 feet from the shoreline, the location and tree canopy make the course pleasant, even in the heat of a sunny, summer day. The great game, played on the greens with a…

Staff Blogger: Jessica Kidd, Advancement Manager   As we know, the Chautauqua experience is based upon the exploration and enrichment of life through four pillars: religion, education, cultural arts and recreation. Each pillar provides opportunities for Lakesiders of all ages to grow mentally, physically and spiritually. For Lakesiders like Tom McKinney, the Chautauqua experience has been an important part of his life. McKinney’s first memory of Lakeside is running along the dock during the hot and sunny summer days. The lakefront was a place he spent much of…

Staff Blogger: Jessica Kidd, Advancement Manager   Lakeside Chautauqua is a special place where friends and families visit to unwind and make lasting memories. For many, Lakeside has been a cherished place for more than 140 years. Suzanne Bond’s grandfather, the Rev. Charles Bennett, began the family’s Lakeside tradition. He was a long-time Lakesider. Whether the Bond family is walking along Ohio’s Most Beautiful Mile or attending Hoover Auditorium programs, they are creating lasting memories, just as many others do at this special place.
