The East Kennebec Trail, on Benton Avenue, in Benton, has been renamed the Peter Garrett Trail, on May 16, 2024. They had a ribbon cutting ceremony at 3 p.m., to honor Peter Garrett and to officially rename the trail. This was a great honor for the Kennebec Messalonskee Trails and the community.


CORRECTION: In the article above, which appeared on the cover of the May 23, 2024, issue of The Town Line, it was originally incorrectly stated that the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors authorized the renaming of a trail in the Kennebec Messalonskee  trails after long-time advocate Peter Garrett. It was not in the board’s jurisdiction to do so. It was a reporting error.
