SCHEDULE UPDATE: Summer Celebration & UMC Historic Site Designation Ceremony
This year's Summer Celebration will now be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2 at Heritage Hall Museum so that along with celebrating a successful 145th season, the community can also come together for the unveiling of a plaque that commemorates Lakeside's designation as a United Methodist Church (UMC) Historic Site.

Lakeside President/CEO Kevin Sibbring and other community members will provide reflections from another renewing summer at Lakeside, and Michael Shirtz will lead the crowd in hymns of gratitude. Bishop Tracy Malone will preside over the Historic Site dedication and bless the plaque.

The UMC Historic Site designation comes as the culmination of an application process undertaken by Lakeside and the Lakeside Heritage Society through the General Commission on Archives & History of the UMC.

The officially numbered Historic Site plaque will be placed on the original Lakeside Chapel (now Heritage Hall Museum) to honor Lakeside and all of those who have both found and provided spiritual renewal here throughout the duration of the relationship between Lakeside and the UMC. For more information on the UMC designation, visit

Please note: due to schedule changes, there will be no community picture this year.

Concert in the Park: The Adjustments
7 p.m. Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo 
The Adjustments is a favorite Northeast Ohio band that was created at the turn of the century with one goal in mind - to keep the dance floor full. They have picked through decades of music to bring audiences the best performance possible. They 'adjust' the music to the crowd's mood and the audience's requests and consistently put a unique spin on long-standing musical traditions. From the 1950s old-school favorites to today's country, rock, dance and pop chart-toppers, The Adjustments cover it all.
