2018 Friends Chautauqua


On Sunday, June 24, 2018, the Friends of Lakeside Lab hosted the Friends Chautauqua. What started out as a lovely afternoon swiftly turned into something less than ideal. Just as the festivities were ready to begin, a ferocious storm raced through the Iowa Great Lakes. Guests who were able to make it to the Lab dashed into the Dining Hall and were met with welcome cheers as they entered the foyer. Soaking wet, staff and a number of hardy guests assisted with clean-up as flood waters proceeded to rush into the building. Nonetheless, the Alexander Piano Trio provided musical entertainment throughout the wailing storm as Farm to Fork managed to whip up fantastic food despite the howling winds pounding their food truck. Okoboji Brewing Company keep our guests smiling with their outstanding beers and great sense of humor. Despite Mother Nature tossing us the worst she had to offer, 89 people braved the elements that evening and enjoyed a one-of-a-kind fundraising experience. Special thanks again to our event sponsors and guests!

2017 Friends Chautauqua


Thanks to all who joined us on Sunday, June 18, for the Friends Chautauqua. Late evening thundershowers did not deter the participants who enjoyed great good, lovely music, and wonderful company at our annual fundraiser. Mother Nature rewarded our perseverance with a gorgeous rainbow at the end of the event. Thank you to our sponsors, guests, and students for a terrific evening!
