While the state of Indiana may be on lock down until at least the end of April, Chautauqua-Wawasee is looking forward to better days ahead while preparing a variety of programming for May and June.
“CBD: Pros & Cons” will be offered from 6:30-7:30 p.m. May 12 at the Oakwood Resort. Chautauqua-Wawasee and Parkview Health are jointly sponsoring this presentation and discussion on cannabidiol. Jeannette Cochran, Parkview Physicians Group, Mind Body Medicine, will discuss how CBD is being used to treat a wide array of medical issues.
However, questions remain regarding its safety and effectiveness. There are also many products out there yet CBD isn’t regulated. This event is open to the public and admission is free.
The Lake Wawasee, then & now historic cruise will be held from 2-4 p.m. May 21. This event was very successful last year and is back by popular demand. Local historian Ann Garceau of the Syracuse-Wawasee Historical Museum will be the guide on the cruise.
Garceau shares interesting stories about historic structures that stood around the lake. Participants will be able to better visualize them with the aide of a provided pamphlet, “Then & Now,” picturing what people are hearing about while enjoying what has been built there now. Garceau highlights numerous hotels, marinas, entertainment venues, neighborhoods and historic homes.
