Virtual Programming
The heart of Lakeside is all about connection - with family, with friends, and with our community both locally and globally. It's about great programming, exploring new ideas, and honoring tradition in a welcoming and inclusive environment. This winter, Lakeside has responded to the challenges presented by world events by curating programming designed to connect Lakesiders with one another in unique and meaningful ways. See below for a list of our upcoming programs and visit our website for a complete listing of offerings.
