Chautauqua’s 145 Birthday, Celebration & Reflection (Gallery)

Chautauquans of all ages turned out to throw the Institution a party in honor of its 145th birthday, all throughout the day on Tuesday — from family-friendly activities on Bestor Plaza to the traditional reflections of Old First Night in the Amphitheater. Old First Night is a time to celebrate and give back, and thanks to the collective birthday gift of the community, over $24,000 was raised Tuesday in support of the 2019 Chautauqua Fund, and every gift makes a difference. Lin Winters Jones, of White River Junction, Vermont, won the drawing for an electronics package — including a Kindle Fire HD 10 Tablet with charging doc and an Echo Show 5 — offered as the Old First Night giveaway.
