Lakeside 2023 season

We're in Lakeside for 2 weeks. Now we are renters again as we were from 1974 to 1988. Lakeside is celebrating its 150th season and our 50th. It's been cool, but sunny, and in this photo we are enjoying the circle of benches near the lake after lunch.  There is a little haze from the Canadian fires, but not terrible. Because of the wind patterns Lakeside had less smoke than Columbus.  Last night we had dinner with our friends the Cassidys from Tennessee and then enjoyed a wonderful show in Hoover Auditorium by the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players. Today we have a high school graduation party for our good friend and neighbor from Cincinnati, Jack, and tomorrow a memorial service for our summer pastor of the last 15 years Rev. Irwin Jennings. This week I attended all the Faith Hours, with wonderful gospel preaching by Pastor Zac Hess of Grace Polaris in Westerville.
