A Message from Kip Greenhill, President & CEO
Holiday Greetings from Lakeside and wishes for the Merriest of Christmases!

It has grown cold in Lakeside, but for me that adds to the holiday spirit. Our staff has once again done amazing work in making Walnut Plaza look like a Christmas card with lighted trees, ornaments, potted greenery, and more. It is worth a trip back to Lakeside to see the decorations and to perhaps have a warm beverage, hot soup or savory meal from Slack House or Sloopy's. If you can make it back, I invite you to stop into the administration offices to introduce yourself and share what you are most looking forward to in Lakeside this summer season.  

During the coming winter months our chief operations officer, Charles Allen, and I will be working closely with our staff to organize the most memorable of Lakeside seasons.

Thank You!

Thank you for making #GivingTuesday a success! Your kindness, generosity and passion for Lakeside will help maintain and enhance your community. 

We are humbled and excited to announce that more than 400 families helped raise approximately $305,000 to directly support the heart of our community – the four pillars.

Thanks to generous Lakesiders who supported the Pillar sponsorship matching gift, $150,000 given on #GivingTuesday doubled in impact.

“Your generosity speaks volumes of your love for Lakeside, and we are deeply grateful to each of you,” said Tom Jones, Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation Board Chair. “This Giving Tuesday we really came together as a community to celebrate what means the most to us.”
We are truly grateful for your continued love and support of Lakeside.
