Volunteer for the Homestay Program

Posted on July 04, 2012

Lakeside Chautauqua will welcome representatives from 13 other Chautauqua communities for the Chautauqua Network Annual Meeting from July 21-24.

Members of the Chautauqua Network will gather to share their best practices, provide updates on each community, discuss new developments and identify ways to further promote the Chautauqua Trail.

All are invited to become a member of the Chautauqua Network and register for the 2012 Chautauqua Network Annual Meeting.

The Chautauqua Network Annual Meeting is a wonderful opportunity to showcase Lakeside’s beautiful grounds, exceptional programming and friendly community.

Lakeside homeowners are invited to voluntarily host Chautauqua Network attendees throughout the four-day event.

Homestays are a tradition of the Chautauqua Network, providing a bed and conversation to overnight guests.

These personal visits allow attendees to experience Lakeside through the hospitality of gracious homeowners.

Homestay arrangements include a private bedroom with guest-only bathroom or private bedroom with shared bathroom with hosts, with no rental fee.

Hosts can indicate how many attendees can be accommodated in their cottage. Attendees will be provided meals as part of the registration fee; therefore, hosts are not required to plan and prepare entire meals. Linens and towels are to be provided by the host.

Attendees may arrive early on Friday, July 20 or Saturday, July 21 and stay until mid-morning on Tuesday, July 24.

Throughout the four-day stay, attendees will be busy with the Chautauqua Network Annual Meeting gatherings, business meetings and other Lakeside Chautauqua experiences planned.

Share the Lakeside Chautauqua experience by volunteering to host a Chautauqua Network attendee in your cottage. Hosts may even make a new friend across North America.

If interested in participating in the Homestay program, pick up the Homestay Hosting Form at the Lakeside Chautauqua Office, located at 236 Walnut Ave. For questions, call (866) 952-5374, ext. 248.

Thank you for your hospitality and helping us welcome new guests to the Lakeside Chautauqua community.
