Lakeside Chautauqua 
 April 2016
Volunteer at Spring Cleanup Day
Volunteer your time to help beautify Lakeside at the annual Spring Cleanup Day. The event will take place from 8:45 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, April 30. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate.
In past years, more than 75 dedicated Lakeside volunteers have worked together to help improve the overall appearance of the grounds and facilities.
At this year's event, help Lakeside set a record for the most volunteers. Volunteers are needed in the following areas: landscaping and mulching, cleanup in the parks and preparing various buildings.
Orchestra Hall Opens on May 6
Lakeside's historic movie theater, Orchestra Hall, will open with a special weekend screening of "Joy" (PG-13, 124 mins), starring Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 6 and Saturday,
May 7.
The following weekend, the movie "Brooklyn" (PG-13, 111 mins) will be featured at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14. The film "Concussion" (PG-13, 123 mins) will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21.
There are no Chautauqua Pass admission or parking fees to enter Lakeside for these three movie weekends, and guests are invited to give a $5 donation per person for adults and youth.  
Dock Repairs Taking Place
Last year, Lakeside suffered the misfortune of being directly in the path of four major sustained windstorms that resulted in record surf and significant damage.  
This past fall, scuba divers were dispatched to analyze damage to the dock. On the east side of the dock, they found two damaged areas on the external sections of the metal plates fortifying the dock.
Once damaged, powerful wave action washed away fill rock used in the interior section of the dock structure. In turn, this created major voids where the concrete surface of the dock began to collapse.
Celebrate the Lakeside Daisy on May 18
In early May, an ordinary looking patch of gravel along Ohio's Most Beautiful Mile bursts into full bloom.
The bright Lakeside daisy (Tetraneuris herbacea) is one of Ohio's most spectacular wildflowers. This long-lived perennial grows where few others can, on nearly barren limestone bedrock in full sunlight.
In early to mid-May, the bright, yellow flowers adorn the otherwise bleak and sunbaked landscape of the Marblehead Quarry; the only natural population of the Lakeside daisy in the U.S. It is a federally threatened species and has been listed as endangered in Ohio since 1980.
Teen Center & Programming Taking Shape
Thanks to your generous support on #GivingTuesday, we've already started work on the new Teen Center, which will be located in the Lower Pavilion Room, across from Dockside.
Over the past few weeks, extensive wiring has been completed to allow for new lighting fixtures and additional fans to be installed.
The construction crew has also been busy creating a gaming space for teens by creating new walls in the massive space.
Hotel Lakeside Lobby Restrooms get Facelift
Last year, during roundtable discussions with Lakeside Chautauqua President/CEO Kevin Sibbring, we continuously heard requests to update the Hotel Lakeside lobby restrooms.
We took your concerns into consideration and hired contractors to update the restrooms for you this summer.
Over the past few weeks, the bathrooms have been gutted to the studs and subflooring and ceilings have been replaced.
Lakeside Earns Fifth 'Tree City USA' Honor
Lakeside Chautauqua was recently recognized as a Tree City USA community at the Northwest Ohio awards ceremony hosted by the Village of West Unity and their Tree Commission.
This is the fifth time our Chautauqua community has been honored with this nationally-recognized award.
The awards were presented to Tree City USA communities by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry.
Complete a Questionnaire about Community
On August 14-18, Lakeside will welcome Dr. Christine D. Pohl, Associate Provost and Professor of Christian Ethics and Church in Society at Asbury Theological Seminary.
She has completed extensive focus group research identifying the core practices essential for community life and authored the book Living into Community: Cultivating Practices that Sustain Us.
We will be using Dr. Pohl's research to begin a dialogue about community and the core practices needed for a thriving one. You're invited to participate in interviews and storytelling opportunities this spring and to take an electronic questionnaire now. 



"State of Lakeside" Spring Gatherings
During the months of March and April, President/CEO Kevin Sibbring and the Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation staff traveled throughout Florida and Ohio to present several "State of Lakeside" updates.
Each gathering was engaging, and attendees and staff enjoyed reconnecting with friends and meeting new community members.
In his update, Sibbring provided a 2015 financial overview and discussed the progress of major projects, including Hotel Lakeside, the Teen Center, master planning and dock repairs.
