Inscription.  

On July 4, 1906 a Music Pavilion was dedicated to accommodate Beck's Concert Band, a well respected band in Lititz. An octagonal shaped, gazebo style bandstand with latticed sides, designed by Paul E. Beck, Band Director, was built in the area of what is now the concession stand. The pavilion became a more fitting facility for not only the Beck Concert Band but also visiting bands performing in the park on special occasions.

The present gazebo, built in 2004 as a replica of the 1906 music pavilion, was dedicated to the honor and in memory of William B. Oehme for his untiring efforts and support of the Lititz Springs Park.

This marker is provided by and dedicated to the memory of
Robert "Sketch" Mearig
a collector of Lititz history, who loved Lititz Springs Park

 
Erected 2009.
