Thank you, volunteers
We want to express our sincerest thanks to the many generous volunteers who have assisted with projects not only during the Chautauqua season but into the fall.

We are especially grateful to Darrell Waite for painting the fountain on the Hotel Lakeside front lawn, and the group who helped scrape and paint the garage at 617 Poplar Ave.

The completion of these projects help improve and maintain the grounds as we head into the winter months. Your dedication and hard work contribute to the success, preservation and improvement of Lakeside. The Lakeside staff and community as a whole are deeply grateful for these efforts and all the efforts of the Volunteer Corps!
Please welcome Melanie Edris!
