Chautauqua Foundation CEO Geof Follansbee, a lifelong Chautauquan, celebrates the Foundation’s 75th anniversary.

Boys’ and Girls’ Club’s SAC Girls, overall champions of the 2012 Air Band competition, perform their routine, “We Are Legends,” just before the evening’s conclusion.

A spotlight shines on Ramona Weissbard as the last Chautauquan standing during Roll Call — she has been coming to Chautauqua for 98 years.

Audience members hold up hankerchiefs and tissues to take part in the traditional “Drooping of the Lilies” exercise to honor Chautauquans “who have joined the great majority.”
