By Carol Morgan, Lakeside Heritage Society Board President

Thinking about throwing out grandma’s rocking chair?  Wait!  We just might be able to find a home for that rocking chair.  The Lakeside Heritage Society holds a Recycle Sale twice a year, one during the Memorial Day weekend in May (May 22 through May 25) and a second during the Labor Day weekend (September 4 through September 7).  Both are held on the Lakeside Chautauqua grounds in South Auditorium on Central Avenue, between 5th and 6th Streets.
