Lakeside's Long History
The first Institute of the Ohio State Epworth League was held in
Lakeside August 11-15, 1915 with 125 delegates in attendance. A fine
program was arranged, and the faculty was untiring...
The young organization "grew in stature, and in wisdom, and
in favor with God and man." The name was changed in 1916 to
The Lakeside Epworth League Institute...
Planned recreation, sports, good food, and inspiring leadership
contributed to the high morale. The Morning Watch was well attended...
[were] seeing life whole, and enjoyed the experience.
The growing Institute divided into North-East
Ohio and West Ohio Conference divisions. The numbers continued to
increase, and further
divisions by Districts were made. Prominent ministers and missionaries
of world influence continued to bring a world-message to these
hundreds of young people.
