"State of Lakeside" Gatherings across Ohio
Lakeside is planning a series of "State of Lakeside" Address gatherings around Ohio - Columbus, Lakeside, Cleveland and Canton - during April.
At each gathering, Lakeside Chautauqua President/CEO Kevin Sibbring will meet with Lakesiders, give an overview of the past year, provide an update on the work at the Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus, discuss Master Planning and highlight the 2017 Chautauqua summer programs.
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.
Sow Some Lakeside Chautauqua Love  
Give a gift of $25 or more to the Lakeside Fund in March, and we'll send you a Lakeside bookmark with an herb seed packet as a token of our appreciation. Plant the heart-shaped packet, filled with basil, chives or parsley, in your garden and watch your Lakeside love grow.
Just as your gift allows Lakeside to thrive and grow, the sown heart will bring you and your kitchen any combination of three herb varieties.
Then, use the Lakeside bookmark to mark a page in your favorite book. Each time you return to your book, delight in the surprise of being momentarily transported to a special memory of Lakeside, which you have so generously supported with your gifts.
Volunteer at Spring Cleanup Day
Volunteer your time to help beautify Lakeside at the 12th 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.
In past years, more than 75 dedicated volunteers have worked together to help improve the overall appearance of the grounds and facilities.
At this year's event, help Lakeside set a record for the most volunteers. We would love to see 80 volunteers this year. Volunteers are needed in the following areas: landscaping and mulching, cleanup in the parks and preparing various buildings.
2017 Education Highlights
Lakeside's Education Department is pleased to announce themes for the 2017 Chautauqua Lecture Series.
The first week of the season will feature "A Peace of My Mind," a multimedia exhibit on display in Hoover Auditorium (June 17-24). In addition, author and photographer John Noltner, the founder of "A Peace of My Mind," will lecture on his project, which explores the meaning of peace, one story at a Time.
Responding to Adversity (July 3) features Rosemarie Rossetti, PhD, who shares lessons learned about living with conviction after a tragic accident left her paralyzed from the waist down and discusses her nationally-acclaimed home with features promoting accessibility, safety and greater independence.
