Pool & Wellness Site Study & Analysis Underway
From 8 a.m.-12 p.m. Friday, July 29, contractors will scrape the surface soil from the new Pool & Wellness Center location so that bedrock can be analyzed and studied in an effort to develop detailed plans and costs of the new facility. They will be able to study the bedrock to understand the excavation work that will need to be completed in order to build the Pool & Wellness Center.

For the safety of Lakesiders, we will be placing a fence around the entire perimeter of the site. The fencing is needed to keep people safely off the exposed rock and to allow additional survey work during August. This preliminary work is a necessary next step in developing detailed costs, plans and timelines so a final decision can be made in the near future.

The Lakeside Fund is Vital Each Year
The generous spirit of Lakeside's founders, and the many gifts received from early guests, has built our Chautauqua community.

Thanks to the generosity of many Lakesiders year in and year out, thousands of families and individuals have visited, recharged and renewed their spirit along the Lake Erie shoreline.

The Lakeside Fund annual giving campaign bridges the gap between income and the actual cost of Chautauqua programming, as well as the preservation and maintenance of Lakeside's beautiful grounds and many historic structures.

Here are a few areas the Lakeside Fund has helped improve or enhance the Lakeside Chautauqua experience.

Environmental Water Quality Roundtable: Great Minds of the Great Lakes
On July 9, Lakeside Chautauqua hosted an Environmental Water Quality Roundtable in response to last year's destructive algal bloom, described as "off the charts" by Senator Rob Portman (on a scale of 1-10, the algae was a 10.5).

In attendance were distinguished panelists who spoke on the progress and steps being taken moving forward.

Kevin Sibbring, President/CEO of Lakeside Chautauqua, introduced the event and the premise behind it, ensuring attendees that these are the people who have the knowledge to solve the issue of the algae.

Religious Life
Preacher of the Week: Dr. Peter Rollins
Supported by the Gretchen A. Curtis Endowment
Along our spiritual journey, we need to experience new thoughts and perspectives that challenge us to engage with God, join a dialogue about the Holy and learn new thoughts about worship from around the world. This is important in our Chautauqua experience.  

From July 31-Aug. 4, Dr. Peter Rollins will bring a different perspective to the pulpit as Preacher of the Week. This week is supported by the Gretchen A. Curtis Endowment.

Through Dr. Rollins' speaking engagements conducted around the world in churches, universities, festivals and galleries, he has challenged clergy, laity and congregations to experience and learn from his teachings.

He blurs the lines between sacred and secular, and he argues that Christianity is concerned with life before death rather than life after death.

The "Professional Zaniac," who has been cracking jokes onstage for almost 15 years, zigzags between physical stunts and non-stop comedy. During the show, vegetables are sliced in half by flying playing cards, flaming torches and bowling balls are juggled with ease and every audience volunteer leaves the stage in triumph.
