The Lakesider newspaper provides weekly updates on spiritual, educational, cultural and recreational events during the summer. The Lakesider is available on the grounds, free-of-charge, and also online below. While away from Lakeside, sign up to receive our e-newsletter.

On Friday mornings during the summer, youth ages 10-15 are invited to gather at the Legacy House, located at 217 Walnut Ave., to help bundle the newspapers and deliver stacks to locations in the Lakeside Business District. Bundles and newspaper stacks will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. If interested, report to the Legacy House at 9 a.m. Fridays during the summer. Delivery will take place June 3-August 19, 2016.

On Saturday evenings, children ages 6-10 are invited to gather at Hoover Auditorium from 7:30-8 p.m. to hand out the Lakesider newspaper prior to the evening performances. If interested, please check in at Hoover Auditorium front porch at 7:15 p.m. Children will pass out papers on the front porch and side doors. Delivery will begin on Saturday, June 18.

Upon completion of each of these delivery opportunities, children and youth will still have their choice between receiving a free Coffee & Cream soft-serve ice cream coupon or miniature golf coupon.
