Founded in 1901, The Litchfield Town Band’s directors and musicians are being recognized for their dedication through the years, receiving Litchfield Township’s first historical marker! Thanks to the tireless efforts of Celia Kruggel and Cindy Bennett, The Ohio History Center has awarded our band a Historical Marker for being active for over one hundred years.
The marker was placed next to the gazebo at Circle Park, thanks to the hard work of Jason Davis, Mike Pope, John Kruggel, Art Butcher and Josh Butcher. The marker was dedicated at the first Ice Cream Social on June 9, celebrating this amazing accomplishment.
