Lakeside Chautauqua
Aug. 11-17, 2018

Lakesider Pilots New Format
In the spirit of Chautauqua - that is, the spirit of learning, growing and trying new things Lakeside is piloting a new layout of the Lakesider newspaper with this 2018 Week 9 issue.

In this new version we are piloting this week, the programs and events are listed chronologically. Each day of Week 9, Saturday-Friday, has its own two-page spread that consists of key stories and a comprehensive list of events for the day. On the days where it makes the most sense (Monday-Friday), events are also grouped by pillar, for those who are familiar with the separate programs and wish to search for events more quickly that way.

At the end of the summer and into the off-season, Lakeside will review and take into consideration all guests' and staff's feedback. The final result for next year may be to continue with this new layout, it may be to revisit the old layout, or it may be to come up with a hybrid version of the two. If, after reviewing this newspaper, you wish to submit your thoughts, please visit, and click on the button to take the survey.
Experience the Holy Land: Luncheon & Presentation
On Sunday, Aug. 12, all are invited to experience the trip that several Lakesiders took to the Holy Land this past February. The event will begin with a luncheon at 12 p.m. (Mediterranean salads will be available to purchase), and a presentation at 12:30 Wesley Lodge. Individuals who took the trip will present their experience through pictures and videos, beginning in the South at the Dead Sea and winding up in Bethlehem with stops in Jericho, Cana and more.
Lakeside Symphony Orchestra - We Value Your Feedback
To celebrate the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra's (LSO) 55th season, we welcomed six top-notch guest conductors, five of whom are applying to be the next Conductor and Music Director of the LSO. With extensive experience from around the world, the conductors collaborated with the orchestra's 90 talented musicians and guest soloists to bring new excitement and artistry to Lakeside.
As we embark on a national-level search for a future Conductor and Music Director, we're launching an e-survey to collect feedback about your LSO concert experience this summer. Take the survey!  
Reflecting on Seven Years at Lakeside
At the end of the summer, I will retire from my position as the Director of Religious Life & Church Outreach.This is a bittersweet moment for me. Lakeside has graciously received my wife Shirley and me, and we have come to love the spirit of Lakeside. We were privileged to see the idea of The Memorial Garden at Chautauqua Park become a reality and I am thrilled to now see a portable labyrinth at Lakeside, with a more permanent one coming soon. And of course, we cannot forget to mention the life-long friends we have found here.

Within the past decade, both at Lakeside and on a more national scale, the understanding and nature of religion has changed significantly. Within American society, there is a dramatic decrease in attendance at 'main line churches,' or churches at all for that matter. Read more...
