While enjoying the Lakeside campus, many of us speculate about the names on cottages. In this light-hearted presentation, Gretchen Curtis will tell stories describing how about 60 cottages in Lakeside received their names. Can you identify cottages whose names have been unchanged for more than 100 years? What single word is used most often in current cottage names? Attendees will be asked to complete a card with their cottage address and its name (if it has one) and Gretchen will deliver cards to the Heritage Society Archives to be placed in cottage files.
