Lakeside Chautauqua Deepens Commitment to Chautauqua Ideal

Posted on June 19, 2012

Over the past seven years, Lakeside has embraced and deepened its commitment to the Chautauqua ideal by further researching the movement, visiting and meeting with the leaders of other communities on the Chautauqua Trail, and promoting its Chautauqua heritage with residents and guests.

The Chautauqua Movement holds an honored place in North American history, and Lakeside remains a leader of this cultural phenomenon.

To fully honor this history and acknowledge Lakeside’s mission, the Lakeside Board of Directors recently made a decision to adopt a new public-facing name for its cherished institution, Lakeside Chautauqua.

While not a big change, it is significant because it will better ensure that residents and guests understand and value the uniqueness of the community.

In the coming year, Lakesiders will be hearing more about this subtle but impactful transition. Please use Lakeside Chautauqua in your vernacular to promote the true value and character of the community to all who visit or wish to learn more.

Lakeside Chautauqua also invites all to actively participate in the Chautauqua Network Annual Meeting as it welcomes its sister Chautauqua communities from across the U.S. and Canada to gather at Lakeside Chautauqua this summer.

Those who register will be inspired and meet others who share a passion for all things Chautauqua. Together, participants will continue to celebrate the Chautauqua heritage as Lakeside Chautauqua.
