has been established as a memorial to Jesse Kimball, who died January 18, 2003 while on active duty in the US Air Force.
The gym, which opened March 17, 2007, is a non-profit organization intended to benefit community members of Buckfield, Hartford and Sumner, but membership is open to anyone. Ongoing physical and educational opportunities toward health and wellness are available.
This project has taken several years to complete and has been made possible by the generosity of the Evening Star Lodge #147, the foresight of Jesse Kimball and the dedicated effort of James Bennett, Sr., James Kimball, Jacob Kimball, Jarek Boyd, Jody Kimball, Christopher Boyd, and Randy Smith.
The success of this project depends on on-going community support. Tax-deductible donations can be made payable to Jesse Kimball Memorial Gymnasium, Inc. and mailed to 179 North Whitman School Rd., Buckfield, ME 04220
