"A year round center for retreats and renewal at Chautauqua Institution offering a positive radiant expression of United Methodist Christianity. Providing for spiritual refreshment, quiet renewal, friendship and fellowship!"
What a wonderful week of jazz with the 'finest in the world' Lincoln Center Orchestra. Even our House was reverberating with the soulful music; you know of our 'location, location, location.'
Our chaplain, Lisa Marshal, displayed a beautiful smile and vibrant personality to add to this musical paradise.

Activities during the week:
Nine weeks have quickly passed and another season will be going into the 'UM House Yearbook.' We look forward to seeing many of you next year. This 1920 photo reminds us of all the changes that have taken place over the years to the House.
Heat was a factor this 7th week. In an attempt to sooth the mind and the brow our chaplain, Steve Taylor and his wife Stacey, brought a coolness into the House with their calm prayerful approach. Steve taught us about spiritual gifts and the making of maple syrup as a family tradition.
After one week of vacation we are back for the remainder of the season. It is always nice to have youth in the House and this week was an example. Our two grandsons, Donovan and Nick, found a playmate in the chaplain's son, Will. They were a key part of the porch activities.
Our chaplain was Mary Kelly and with her husband Jayme and son Will, they provided a positive outgoing climate on our porch.
