Steele Memorial Bandstand Dedication

Steele Memorial Bandstand

The Steele Memorial Bandstand has been a community gathering place for decades and continues to be a special place for open-air concerts, author visits, planned marriage proposals and a variety of family celebrations.

In 2017, many Lakesiders gave gifts on #GivingTuesday to revitalize the Steele Memorial Bandstand. Legacy is everywhere in Lakeside. Fred (Fritz) Steele III and his wife, Karlyn Marie Thygesen Steele, were two people that enjoyed the legacy of Lakeside, and who would go on to leave a legacy of their own, despite their years being cut tragically short by a car accident on Aug. 20, 1978.

Fritz had spent nearly every summer of his life in Lakeside, and Karlyn found it easy to adopt her husband’s love for the community. Fritz enjoyed playing electric guitar, and Karlyn exercised her vocal talents by singing in a choir. When it came time to honor the couple with a memorial, special care was taken to ensure that their legacy, the Steele Memorial Bandstand, would honor their love for music.

At this special celebration, we will graciously thank the entire Lakeside Chautauqua community for supporting the Steele Memorial Bandstand. Your kindness and generosity made this possible.
