Join Lakeside's 5th Year of #GivingTuesday 
On Tuesday, Nov. 28, Lakeside Chautauqua will partner with #GivingTuesday for the fifth time. #GivingTuesday is truly a community effort, and we cherish this day of coming together for an annual cause.
This year, Lakeside has set a goal of revitalizing the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo. For decades, the Gazebo has hosted concerts, weddings, reunions, anniversaries and many other celebrations. It has been a special place for Lakesiders over the years, and we hope to ensure that the space can continue to serve future generations. Read more...

Legacy; it's a loaded word and a heavy concept. How often have you thought about your own legacy? When did you last reflect on someone else's legacy?
Whether we notice it or not, legacy is everywhere in Lakeside. The fellowship we share, the paths we walk and the traditions we enjoy were shaped by the hearts and hands that came before us. There were strong hands that built the literal foundations we stand on, light and talented hands of a century's worth of performers, healing hands that illustrate our Christian gospel, and tender hands joined during a lakefront wedding.
Fritz and Karlyn Steele were two people that enjoyed the legacy of Lakeside, and who would go on to leave a legacy of their own, despite their years being cut tragically short by a car accident on Aug. 20, 1978.
Fred "Fritz" Steele III was a third generation Lakesider; the son of Suzanne Easton Steele and Fred Edward Steele, Jr. His grandparents, James Easton and Hulda Louise Nichols, purchased a cottage at 161 Oak Ave. in 1933. Eighty-four years later, that original cottage is still standing and is currently owned by Fritz's sisters, Marcia Steele and Rustin Levenson. Read more...
What is #GivingTuesday?
Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kick-off of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday reminds people about the importance of giving by inspiring them to improve their communities and support charities and causes.
Taking place on Tuesday, Nov. 28, it harnesses the collective power of non-profits, families, businesses and individuals to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
