Volunteer Recognition Picnic


Aug 5, 2017
01:00pm – 02:00pm

Hotel Lakeside Lawn

Lakeside volunteers are essential to the quality of the Chautauqua experience.

We will recognize and celebrate the service and commitment of volunteers at our Volunteer Recognition Picnic, held from 1-2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5 on the Hotel Lakeside lawn. All Lakeside volunteers are welcome to attend.

The buffet-style menu includes your choice of shredded BBQ pork or veggie burger, pasta salad, chips, cookies, brownies and lemonade.

Volunteers help bring the Lakeside Chautauqua mission to life with every countless hour they generously give. Without their support, many events and programs would not be the success they continue to be.

Lakeside appreciates the time, talent and treasure each individual gives to make a significant impact on the community.

To attend, RSVP by Friday, July 28 to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or (419) 798-4461, ext. 246.
