Lakeside Honors Volunteers

Posted on August 05, 2015

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

Lakeside will recognize and celebrate the service and commitment of volunteers at the Volunteer Recognition Picnic, held from 12-1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8 on the Hotel Lakeside lawn. Volunteers help in virtually every aspect of what renders the Lakeside Chautauqua experience distinctive and unique.

In the spring, they assist with the beautification of the grounds during Lakeside Spring Cleanup Day. Volunteers maintain Lakeside’s many gardens during the summer months, teach children to sail for the first time as part of the Kids Setting Sail program and lend a hand at the evening programs and worship services in Hoover Auditorium. In the fall, Lakesiders return to Lake Erie to assist with the operations of the Lakeside-Marblehead Lighthouse Festival.

These are just a few of the many ways volunteers make an impact at Lakeside Chautauqua all year.

From Saturday, Aug. 8-Friday, Aug. 14, the community will celebrate the countless hours and dedication of all the special volunteers. In reality, this small gesture in no way expresses enough thanks to the volunteers that give of themselves daily, weekly, monthly and all year.

Lakeside Chautauqua appreciates the time and talent each individual gives to make a significant impact on the community. All are invited to pause this week and give thanks to the volunteers who make the Lakeside Chautauqua experience special.
