A message from Council for October 2nd, 2020

By News, Uncategorized

New Brunswick Public Health is monitoring a Covid-19 outbreak at Woodland Pulp in Baileyville Maine.  7 workers have tested positive to date.  Woodland Pulp employs several Canadians who travel back and forth from the plant to St. Stephen and the surrounding area.  New Brunswick Public Health is asking residents in the border region to be extra vigilant in their daily activities by avoiding large crowds where physical distancing cannot be maintained, wearing a mask in public areas and washing their hands frequently or using hand sanitizer.

This evolving situation reminds us all here in McAdam that Covid-19 remains on our doorstep and the disease is merely waiting for new unwary hosts.  We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.  Stay safe everyone.

Village Notice – CertainTeed

By News, Uncategorized

The Village Council has today been notified by CertainTeed Saint-Gobain the gypsum wall-board plant in McAdam will cease production 28 August 2020 and the plant will be permanently closed by 28 February 2021.   This is devastating news for the community but even more so for the 59 employees at the Certainteed plant and the other employees of service companies that relied on the plant for work.  Roughly two thirds of the employees affected reside in McAdam while the remaining third reside in Fredericton, Harvey and St. Stephen.  Our hearts go out to all of you and your families during this time of uncertainty.

Council was advised this morning the reason for the closure was based on poor market conditions and the plant was working at 22 percent of its capacity.  The company has told Council they are committed to working closely with all employees to mitigate the closure by assisting them with career counselling and job opportunities at other Certainteed plants.

We have notified government officials and will be requesting a meeting with Premier Higgs and his staff to discuss the CertainTeed plant closure and together develop a strategy going forward to minimize the negative impacts of this closure on the members of our community affected directly and the Village as a whole.

We are all in this together and together we will get through this.

Second CPR Dedication Bench

By News, Uncategorized

Second CPR Dedication Bench

 

For nearly a century, the Canadian Pacific Railway, was a major employer within the Village of McAdam. Not only did the railway provide a livelihood for thousands of men and women, but also played a significant role in building the community.

In honour of the CPR workers, the McAdam Beautification Committee would like to erect a second CPR Dedication Bench for those with us, and those who have passed. Appropriately, the granite bench will be placed in “Whistle Stop Park”, where the names will be displayed for a lifetime.

The cost to purchase a name is $100. Please include the first and last name. Cash or cheques can be received at the McAdam Village Office, at 146 Saunders Rd, E6J-1L2, between 9am to 4pm weekdays. Email transfers can be sent to adonahue@mcadamnb.com.   We are able to accommodate 72 names on the bench.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Cancellation of the 2020 McAdam Lake Family Paddle

 

The 2020 McAdam Lake Family Paddle has become, unfortunately another victim of COVID-19.  To help minimize the opportunity for COVID-19 spread within our community, the Village of McAdam and the McAdam Heart and Home Corporation have decided to cancel the 2020 McAdam Lake Family Paddle.  It was not an easy decision as the paddle has gained a loyal and growing group of participants and sponsors wanting to have a family day while supporting a worthy charity.  Thank you ever so much for all your support of this event and we look forward to hosting the 2021 McAdam Lake Family Paddle.  We hope to see you there.

McADAM RAILWAY STATION

By News, Uncategorized

Due to Covid-19, the McAdam Railway Station will not be open to the public during the months of June and July 2020.  Our decision does not come easy, but is a necessary step to ensure that safety comes first for visitors and friends to our Village.

In accordance with the Department of Health Policies and Procedures, guidelines are being established that will hopefully make it possible to open the McAdam Railway Station at a later date.  Before the end of July, a public announcement will be made to advise the status moving forward with the Station being open or continuing to remain closed during the month of August.

Your co-operation and understanding during this time of uncertainty is very much appreciated.  Like you, we are also struggling with the ‘New Normal”, and our priority as well is to ensure the health and safety of everyone.  When we do re-open for visitors, it will be done in a well-planned manner in accordance with the Province of New Brunswick’s Covid-19 Operational Plan.

Please stay safe and continue to engage with us online through our Facebook site at https://www.facebook.com/McAdamRailwayStation/ and our website at https://www.mcadamstation.ca/.  Updates will be provided as they become available.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
