Help Repair Lakeside after Devastating Storms

Posted on October 26, 2015

This year, Lakeside suffered the misfortune of being directly in the path of three major sustained windstorms that resulted in record surf and significant damage to the community.

The storms have taken a toll on our waterfront, shoreline and dock. They ripped through Lakeside, taking cast iron benches from their bolted spaces, washing away the foundation from underneath the splash pad, devastating sections of the shoreline, stirring up trash and debris from the lake, and pulling trees and plants from their roots.

While we are thankful for the community members and staff that worked together to clean up debris, Lakeside still faces significant repairs and shoreline restoration costs.

Join other generous Lakesiders, and give a gift to the Lakeside Fund to support storm repairs. Over the next few weeks, please reach out to family and friends with an email, Facebook post or tweet encouraging them to give a gift to this special place we all call home.

To give a gift to support storm repairs, make an online donation or call (419) 798-5396 with a method of payment. Or, checks may be made payable to the ‘Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation,’ Attn: Jessica Kidd, 236 Walnut Ave., Lakeside, OH 43440 with ‘Storm Repairs’ in the memo line.
