Everyone is invited to visit the “Best Small Town in America” (as determined by the Smithsonian magazine). This outing/event, which is sponsored by the Men’s
Fellowship, will take place on Thursday, August 7. Featured speakers include Ken Burns and Geoffrey Ward on “The Roosevelts” in Chautauqua’s amphitheater at
10:45am. At 2:00pm Krista Tippett, the hostess of “On Being,” will be featured at the Hall of Philosophy.
Parking: $8.50 (We encourage you to arrange carpooling on your own.)
Bus tours: available at 2 and 4pm at a cost of $5 each (Tickets are available at the gate; they fill up fast so purchase them at the gate upon arrival.)
Restaurants and maps: a list of restaurants and maps are available upon entry to the grounds.
Morning church service: the Rev. M. Craig Burns will be preaching in the amphitheater at 9:15. (The Presbyterian House across from the amphitheater hosts a coffee time at the end of the service and before the lecture.)
Extended visit: If you wish to extend your day to include the 8:15pm concert, you would need to purchase a full-day ticket at $76. Guest conductor of the symphony will be Bruce Hangen; horn soloist will be Roger Kaza.
Final comments: The day is yours to explore the grounds. It is helpful once you arrive to purchase a Chautauqua Daily newspaper (always being sold in the amphitheater) to read about events of the day.
Please sign up in Westminster Hall so we have an idea of how many people are planning to attend. You will purchase your tickets at Chautauqua that day.
