1885 TO 1968 

New Piasa Chautauqua — this year observing its eighty- 
third continuous season — started as a Methodist Camp Meet- 
ing Grounds in the summer of 1885. 

A printed circular issued under date of July 13, 1885. 
announced the first Camp Meeting of the Piasa Bluffs As- 
sembly to be held starting August 25, 1885, and continuing 
for one week. 

The circular declared: "The object of the Chautauqua 
Assembly is to maintain a summer resort for literary, scien- 
tific and religious instruction." 

That object has become the revered heritage of Chau- 
tauqua, each Season maintaining the standards adopted in 
that first year. This bulletin presents the 1968 eleven-week 
program which will start Saturday, June 15, and close Mon- 
day (Labor Day), September 2, 1968.

In the two preceding years that I have writ- 
ten this message I have had reason to wonder 
whether or not anyone reads this word of wel- 
come. Whether or not anyone does is unimpor- 
tant because I know that you will be welcomed 
by the really important elements of Chautauqua 
which are more meaningful to each of us: 

1. The wonderful people who made Chautau- 
qua, and 2. its wonderful natural facilities. 

Consciously or unconsciously we return 
annually because we are attracted by these ele- 
ments. Let us appreciate them while they are 
available to us so that we may reverently enjoy 
each day of this 83rd Chautauqua season.

"To conduct a Chautauqua Assembly for religious, educa- 
tional and scientific purposes and operate in connection 
therewith a summer resort." 

Section 2. Policies. In fulfillment of this purpose, the association has 
since its organization found it feasible and possible to operate success- 
fully without profit to its shareholders, to maintain well attended re- 
ligious services and classes, to provide a place, facilities, and supervision 
for wholesome recreation and restful living during the summer season, 
and does hereby declare and determine that a continuation of such 
policies is for the best interest of the association, is essential to the ac- 
complishment of its objects and will most effectively contribute to the 
physical, moral and spiritual welfare of its shareholders, cottage mem- 
bers, their families and guests, accordingly: 

Section 3. Non-Commercial. It is declared that it shall be the policy of 
the association to prevent Chautauqua from becoming a commercial or 
secular enterprise during the period of its commitments to its cottage 
members, expiring November 30, 1985. 

Section 4. Not for profit. The association shall continue to be operated 
and conducted without profit to its shareholders, and the net income, 
if any, shall not be accumulated for, and be paid to, or inure to the 
benefit of, its shareholders. 

Section 5. Religion. The association shall continue to provide leadership 
and facilities for religious education and worship services, Christian but 
non-sectarian in character, as the underlying motif of the organization, 
and shall permit no sectarian or anti-Christian services or activities. 

Section 6. Recreation and Retreat. The association shall, in connection 
with its religious program, provide facilities and leadership for children, 
and shall operate and conduct Chautauqua as a peaceful, wholesome, 
pleasant and safe place for rest and retreat from the pressures of mod- 
ern living. 

Section 7. Revocation or Amendment. This article shall be the central 
guide and control of the officers, directors and shareholders in all their 
actions and decisions, and shall not be revoked or amended except by a 
vote of not less than three-fourths of the entire board of directors and 
three-fourth of the shares of stock of the association, and then only

Rules and Regulations g-overning daily living at Chautauqua are con- 
ceived in the interest of promoting public safety and making a pleasant 
and enjoyable stay for everyone possible. The cooperation of all persons 
in observing and obeying all By-Laws, Rules and Regulations of the 
Association at all times will be greatly appreciated. 

1. VEHICLES: (a) All automobiles must be brought to a full stop at 
the Gate House at entrance to the Chautauqua grounds upon entering 
or leaving. The Gatekeeper is required to determine that each person 
entering the grounds is properly authorized for admission. 

b — The speed limit of all motor vehicles on the Chautauqua 
grounds is 15 miles per hour. All "Stop" signs must be obeyed. 

c — No one may operate a motor vehicle on the Chautauqua 
grounds who does not possess a Driver's License of the State in 
which he resides and who is not adequately covered by liability in- 
surance. All motor vehicles are required to have a state license. 

d — All residents and guests are urged to leave cars parked and 
to walk when possible. The unnecessary driving of motor vehicles on 
Chautauqua grounds will not be permitted. 

e — Anyone judged guilty of careless driving shall be prohibited 
from driving on Chautauqua grounds. 

f — Bicycles are not to be ridden on public walks or the board 
walk. Bicycle riders are urged to exercise caution in riding their 
bicycles. 

2. COTTAGE GUESTS: Owners wishing to have guests in their cot- 
tages must notify the Chautauqua manager and submit complete inform- 
ation about prospective guests to the board. The board reserves the 
right to withhold approval on applications. 

If you expect guests, notify the gatekeeper in advance and make ar- 
rangements for their admission. Frilure to make advance arrangements 
can cause embarrassment as the gatekeeper is not authorized to admit 
strangers to the grounds simply because they announce they have come 
to visit a Chautauqua resident. 

3. BUILDING: No building or additions shall be erected, nor repair 
work started except with consent of the Board of Directors, under a 
permit signed by the Secretary. No building or additions shall be done 
from June 15th to September 10th. 

3a. Any cottage owner who intends to install an air-conditioner, elec- 
trical stove, electric hot water heater, or any other electrical appliances 
that consume a large amount of current must obtain approval of the 
Board of Directors. 

4. COTTAGES: The Grounds Committee shall have the authority to ex- 
amine or inspect any cottage or place on the Grounds as to fire hazards, 
water, light, and sanitary conditions at any or all times.

ferring request to office manager at the Administration Building. 

11. GARBAGE AND TRASH: Garbage and trash shall be placed in 
covered containers. It will be collected at regular intervals during the

Miss Barbara Osborn will be in charge of the Administration Office 
for the season. Barbara is known to most Chautauqua residents and is 
a fourth generation member of her family in Chautauqua. Any questions 
regarding memberships, guests, or miscellaneous problems on the 
grounds should be directed to the Office. All guests and pool fees, as 
well as charges for guests at the Community Center, for which arrange- 
ments must be made in advance, are to be paid weekly at the Office. 

In further consideration of our members we are offering a new 
daily guest arrangement. The individual daily guest rate for adults 
remains at seventy-five cents and for children under 13, fifty cents. It

decker. Both these boys have com- 
pleted Red Cross life-saving re- 
quirements at Chautauqua under 
the capable guidance of Mr. Joe 
Meisel. Our good friends, Otto 
Huff and Joe Voss, will provide 
good refreshing water and the 
know-how in operating the pool 
machinery. 

Mr. Meisel will present, if at 
least 10 applicants are signed up, 
a new program designed to teach 
the pre-school tots to swim. This 
will include children between the 
ages of 3 to 5 and will consist of 
one lesson per week for ten weeks.

structor, will also present a Red 
Cross Water Safety class if enough 
applications are received. Applica- 
tions for both programs must be

1:00 to 5:00 P.M., and from 6:30

ners of the athletic contests are 
presented awards and trophies, 
special recognition is given to the

The Chautauqua Yacht Club is a 
separate corporation but operates 
in close co-operation with the As- 
sociation Board of Directors. 

Constniction of docks and other 
facilities were completed last year 
after all work was accomplished on 
the Harbor. The Yacht Club main- 
tains its own membership rolls and 
establishes a set of charges for 
dock and landing space with ap- 
proval of the Board of Directors. 

The land-locked harbor is a 
charming asset of Chautauqua be- 



i/Jacnt K^luo 



cause of our location of Alton Lake. 
Every resident of Chautauqua who 
is interested in boating is invited 
to contact the officers of the Yacht 
Club for further information. 

The Harbor and its entrance were 
dredged and docks were built last 
year so that the facility is now 
available for full use this season. 
The Yacht Club, with approval by 
the Board of Directors, has estab- 
lished a complete system of fees for 
rental of spaces and also covering 
the landing area.

provide an especially fine program. A variety of denominations and 
special preaching strengths will be represented during the summer.

beauty of God's outdoors in Chautauqua Valley. A worship service at 
Chautauqua is an experience that will long be remembered by your
