Introducing “Chautauqua Hall,” the new grand gathering space on our Manor Campus. This beautiful addition to the Willow Valley Communities landscape is sure to be a place of fun, friends, music, entertainment, great food, and more. With a name as unique as the building itself, it’s easy to wonder what the meaning might be.
“Chautauqua” is a Native American Iroquois name which loosely means to bring together or to tie together. This was significant for us in naming the building because we want this place to be a location where people gather and come together for events, learning, growth, companionship, and enjoyment.
Inspiration for the name was also taken from Chautauqua, NY and the well-known Chautauqua Institution which is a summer resort destination featuring classes, lectures, and performances in everything from historical topics to the visual arts. This is a great model for our Chautauqua Hall to bring people together in unity and friendship and to enhance our mind, body, spirit approach to life-long learning.
Chautauqua Hall is a wonderful place to host events of all types. The upcoming schedule includes movie nights, dances, concerts, picnics, and other exceptional culinary events.
