While we operate under the 'Stay Safe Ohio’ order, we continue to work on innovative programming alternatives for the summer. Many of our traditional programs will need to temporarily move from their traditional brick-and-mortar locations and transition to new outdoor locations or to a virtual option for anyone who wants access to these inspiring programs.
Hoover Auditorium & Evening Entertainment
Unfortunately, the operation of large entertainment venues like Hoover Auditorium will not be possible this summer due to COVID-19 restrictions. Though it grieves us tremendously, we are planning to operate this summer without utilizing Hoover Auditorium and are creating evening programs to be held at the Steele Memorial Bandstand, as well at various other outdoor venues throughout Lakeside. This will allow Lakesiders to enjoy the grounds and shows with their families while maintaining social distancing.
We are also identifying new outdoor options for some of our most beloved programs, such as the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra, and will be streaming our Hoover Community Worship Services with sermons by our Preachers of the Week.
Next week, Lakeside will announce its outdoor evening entertainment at the Steele Memorial Bandstand and Pavilion for the first part of the season, as well as our virtual options for lectures, seminars, art classes, Faith for Living Hour and special streamed programs by artists.
