Lakeside Chautauqua 
April 2017
Volunteer at Spring Cleanup Day 
Volunteer your time to help beautify Lakeside at our annual Spring Cleanup Day. The event will take place from 8:45 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, April 29. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate.
In past years, more than 75 dedicated Lakeside volunteers have worked together to help improve the overall appearance of the grounds and facilities.
At this year's event, help Lakeside break a record for the most volunteers. Volunteers are needed in the following areas: landscaping, cleanup in the parks/waterfront and preparing various buildings.
Bluebird Café 
After 11 years, Dockside is closing its doors. Special thanks to Nancy and Todd Bundy and their family for their dedication to the Lakeside community. The DockDogs and DockRunner service will be greatly missed. We wish the Bundy family the very best!
Just like many people who have spent time at Lakeside, Jen and Ben Linville know how special this place is. They cherish the traditions, honor the heritage and are excited to share this place with their young family.
But unlike many people, the Linvilles are presented with the opportunity to contribute to the special traditions in a new and exciting way, and all of Lakeside gets to take part in it.
Jen and Ben are the owners and operators of Lakeside's newest culinary addition, the Bluebird Café, which will take the place of Dockside at the Pavilion.

Interactive Master Planning Website
Lakeside's development of a master plan is a critical component for the future. This plan will provide a framework for sustainability, development and preservation for the Lakeside community. Your input is vital throughout this process.
There are four ways to get involved in the master planning process. First, share your Lakeside stories. Take a picture from anywhere in Lakeside or upload one from your first visit with a note about why Lakeside is special to you. Our interactive map will collect these memories and help our planning team understand the most important places to focus our efforts and resources during the master planning process.
Visit the Lakeside Daisy Garden
The rare Lakeside daisy, (Tetraneuris herbacea) is one of Ohio's most spectacular wildflowers. This long-lived perennial grows where few others can, on nearly barren limestone bedrock in full sunlight.
In early May, the bright, yellow flowers adorn the otherwise bleak, sunbaked landscape of the Marblehead Quarry, the largest population of the Lakeside daisy in the U.S. It is a federally threatened species and has been listed as endangered in Ohio since 1980.
Lakeside Chautauqua also has its own patch of Lakeside daisies. In 2000, Sid Foster, in cooperation with the Division of Natural Areas & Preserves, established a small population of daisies on Lakeside's lakefront near Perry Park. The garden is in memory of his grandmother, Daisy Farley Foster, who was a Lakeside resident from 1913-1959. Dottie McDowell, Susan Mack and friends maintain the garden for all to enjoy.
For more information about the Lakeside daisy, read The Lakeside Daisy, an Ohio Treasure and   Jennifer Windus' Passion Runs Wild for the Lakeside Daisy on our blog, The Front Porch .
Master Gardener Sows Summer Surprises
Long before these April showers began, Lakeside's Master Gardener Loretta Wilken has been working hard to make sure that Lakeside can look its best long after the May flowers make their first appearance.

Last fall, Wilken and the Grounds Crew planted nearly 1,500 daffodil bulbs, along with hundreds of giant alliums and petite grape hyacinths. Some of these will stay to be enjoyed all summer long, while the spring bulbs will be dug up and stored to replant in the fall.

"Some surprise gardens will be scattered throughout the community," she said. "Take a stroll and discover some colorful treasures, starting with newly accented beds at Hoover Auditorium."

With the weather warming up, the Grounds Crew is preparing the final steps. Once the gardens thaw, more than 4,000 lbs. of soil conditioner will be spaded into the gardens. The greenhouse will be cleaned, and pots will be painted and prepped for more than 130 container gardens throughout the grounds. If you'd like to get involved with preparing these, volunteer for Spring Cleanup Day on Saturday, April 29.
