Lakeside Chautauqua
June 22-28, 2013
Lakeside Chautauqua's Brand Evolves
Over the last 140 years, the Lakeside name and logo have continually evolved. We have used many different font styles in print communications and have promoted Lakeside in many different ways, from "Lakeside-on-Lake Erie" to "Lakeside, the Ohio Chautauqua" to "Lakeside - A Vacation with a Purpose."
Over the past 25 years, we have used "Lakeside, the Chautauqua on Lake Erie" with a logo mark emphasizing Victorian architectural features and our spiritual heritage.
In 2011, the Lakeside Board of Directors voted to adopt a new public facing name, Lakeside Chautauqua, in order to better describe the mission, heritage and uniqueness of our Chautauqua community and its support of the four Chautauqua pillars - religion, education, arts and recreation.

We Celebrate the Generosity of Lakesiders this Summer
It has been an incredible year at Lakeside Chautauqua thanks to the support of many Lakesiders. Today, we pause to celebrate you, our amazing family of supporters.

The 2012 fiscal year marks a year of celebration, as Lakeside Chautauqua surpasses yet another milestone for the Lakeside Fund.
Our goal was to raise $550,000, and we have received more than $688,000. Thanks to first-time families as well as the continued support of lifelong Lakesiders, we exceeded an all-time Lakeside Fund record for another year.
Your Lakeside Fund gifts make a significant and visible impact on the Lakeside Chautauqua experience. Due to your generosity last year, we were able to invest a record amount into 2012 facility upgrades.
Lakeside Chautauqua Achieves Tree City USA Honor
Lakeside Chautauqua was recognized as a Tree City USA at the Northwest Ohio Awards Ceremony on April 18.

This is the second year that Lakeside Chautauqua has been honored with this nationally recognized award.

The awards were presented by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Forestry at the Hope United Methodist Church in Whitehouse, Ohio.

Bill Smith and Frank O'Dell from the Lakeside Tree Advisory Team represented the Lakeside Chautauqua community at the presentation of the award.
Chautauqua Park Creates Connection to Nature
Lakeside Chautauqua has owned a major wooden parcel of land along Harsh Road for many decades.
Last summer, Lakeside acquired nearly seven additional acres adjoining this wooded area with a goal of preserving and expanding green space while making it accessible to guests and residents.
The Lakeside Chautauqua Board of Directors voted unanimously to develop these collective parcels as Chautauqua Park, Lakeside's fourth major park.

Chautauqua Hall Updates Improve Lecture Series
The Lakeside Chautauqua community demonstrated its commitment this year to the Lakeside Fund. As a result, Lakeside Chautauqua was able to update its main educational facility.
Lifelong learning was at the heart of the Chautauqua Movement from its beginning. The Lakeside Chautauqua Education Department continues this tradition by welcoming professors and professionals in various fields to share their expertise.
This year, themes include The World Today, The 1960s and All Things Americana as a part of the Chautauqua Lecture Series. In preparation for the 2013 Chautauqua season, Lakeside Chautauqua has made several improvements to Chautauqua Hall, the central location of lectures, formerly known as the Fountain Inn Green Room.
