    To Carolyn McDaniel, minia-ture golf at Lakeside is more than a simple game. She started work-ing at the golf course 14 years ago, and she has loved it ever since.

    McDaniel is a second gener-ation Lakesider, and her mother told her shes been coming since before she was born. Her parents brought their church groups to Lakeside, and even built a cottage in 1914.

    By working at the golf course, McDaniel carries on the Lakeside tradition for her parents.

    She assigns working hours, trains workers and ensures they have all the supplies they need. McDaniel cherishes the time she spends with her young workers, who she calls wonderful.

    She loves watching them grow up, work through col-lege, and sometimes even bring their own families back to Lakeside. The progress they make is exciting to McDaniel, and she is a constant encour-ager.

    McDaniel admires that the

    course serves as a place for fam-ilies to spend time together with no interruptions. She said that she always hears laughter and encour-agement from the golfers, and the renovations have only added to the excitement. People comment on how impressed they are by the im-provements constantly, according to McDaniel.

    Nicest improvement to min-iature golf in the 45 years Ive been playing here. My six year old grandson even commented on the updates, said one Lakesider.

    On and off the course, McDan-iel loves the things mini-golf does. She is not only able to watch fami-lies grow and spend time together, but she also cares deeply for her workers.

    Lakeside Chautauqua is thank-ful for friends like McDaniel who directly benefi t from the Chautau-qua pillars and encourage others to do the same.

    Tom Mueller, a long time Lakesider, found that he and his family simply clicked with Lakeside Chautauqua during their fi rst visit.

    Mueller has served Lakeside in more ways than people can count on two hands.

    His experiences in-clude helping with the Midwest Birding Sympo-sium, Property Owners Manual, Capital Cam-paign, serving on the Board of Directors,and even weeding at the Memorial Garden, just to name a few.

    Volunteering is sacred to Mueller, and though it might seem tedious to oth-ers, he says that it is a la-bor of love.

    Muellers wife was the second loved one placed in The Memorial Garden at Chautauqua Park. It is only appropriate that she has her ashes in Lakeside because she truly embodied Lake-side.

    For the Mueller fami-ly, the garden serves as a

    spiritual anchor. The family comes to Lakeside not only to relax and enjoy them-selves, but to reconnect with each other.

    When Muellers three sons visit, they make a point to go to the memorial garden.

    They bring the dog and let it drink out of the small trough; they talk to the other people there, and celebrate life at Lakeside. It helps the soul, states Mueller.

    Mueller realizes that these things do not happen without work. He believes that if you sincerely like something, you do some-

    thing for it. Lakeside does not exist

    just because it is Lakeside, it exists because people like Tom put so much time and love into it.

    The Chautauqua experi-ence would not be possible without the help of all of Lakesides volunteers.

    Lakeside values people like Tom Mueller and oth-ers who devote their time and talents.

    PLAN,continued from page 1

    Through these touchpoints, the community is identifying critical needs and opportunities connected with the fi ve strategic goals. Lakesid-ers have voiced the importance and appreciation of the Chautauqua pro-gram and the safety and freedom of all visiting.

    One Lakesider commented specif-ically on Lakesides commitment to the Christian principles of faith, say-ing There are so many other places for families to go stay for vacations, but only a place like Lakeside is de-voted to encouraging spiritual growth. This makes Lakeside a unique place for families with young children and also for adults of any age who want that environment.

    Lakesiders also feel that the values and traditions are vital to the Lakeside

    experience. They also identifi ed and affi rmed that the historic buildings and the beautiful gardens and grounds are important.

    Another Lakesider noted, Lake-side maintains 47 structures and more than 10 miles of roads, and it is im-portant that Lakeside preserve the historic structures and continues to evolve.

    In addition, Lakesiders appreciate the transparency. One Lakesider com-mented, Transparency is happening today. For 140 years there was no transparency. It cuts down the gossip when there are forums, dessert recep-tions and round table discussions.

    Lakeside will continue to collect feedback over the next few months, as well as the next two years, through surveys, social media and blog com-ments, community forums and round-table discussions to develop a master plan.

    The Board will review the com-prehensive information at upcoming meetings to begin the development of a master plan. The master plan will provide a framework for sustainable development and preservation within the Lakeside community, including buildings, landscape, open spaces and infrastructure.

    The development of a master plan is a critical component for Lakesides future to ensure that the design of the grounds and facilities continue to sup-port Lakesides mission and fi ve stra-tegic goals.

    Lakeside Chautauqua will contin-ue to provide transparency to guests and residents by posting updates on the website at www.lakesideohio.com/news/2023, e-newsletters, The Front Porch blog and on social media through the off-season. We invite you to join these communication channels to receive these updates.
