Thanks to the generous donation of former Kennebec resident T.G. Myers of California public restrooms are being added to the Quillin park located on Kennebec’s Main Street. Community volunteers Don Miller and Ed Stiefvater are spearheading the project through the Kennebec Town & Country Club. Construction started April 29.

The two rest room facility features a heated concrete floor, which will allow year around use by the public. Construction of the wood 10 foot by 12 structures is being handled by Moore Brothers Construction of Kennebec. It is expected that the facility will be completed by Kennebec Ag Day, which is Saturday June 17.

T.G. Myers, who lived in Kennebec as a young man, has assisted the community of Kennebec with several recent generous financial donations including funds for the Kennebec sign located along Interstate 90 east of town.

Quillin Park is located where the former Kennebec Hotel once stood. The lot was donated by the Jack McBrayer family, also former Kennebec residents, after Jack and family members tore down the old hotel.
 
John and George Quillin donated the materials for the gazebo that was constructed on the site years ago. A swing set and picnic tables are also available at the park. It has been noted that tourist traveling through the area in addition to locals use the park regularly in the summer.
