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.

Camping During COVID-19 – McAdam Campground

By | News, Uncategorized

The provincial government has given the approval for camping to take place, with strict regulations. Therefore, seasonal camping will commence Friday, May 15th with the following provincial requirements:

  • Social distancing remains in effect (2m/6ft away from those you do not reside with)
  • Seasonal camping is permitted for New Brunswick patrons only.
  • No overnight/short stay camping, or visitors.
  • All communal facilities are closed (laundry, shower, washrooms, outhouses, rec hall and playground).
  • The MEDC or the Government of New Brunswick, has the right to close the campground at any time.

For the health and safety of all patrons, it is important the following steps are adhered to, to keep the campground open.

Due to the pandemic, MEDC invites all seasonal campers to rake and clean their own lot. Without the student assistance this year, this would be a huge undertaking without your help. Sherry has been working hard, volunteering to rake the roads other areas. Additionally, MEDC would like to inform campers that the planned expansion will not take place at this time.

 

Thank you for your patience during these unusual times.

Attention Boaters and Campers on Spednic Lake

Attention Boaters and Campers on Spednic Lake

 

The Village of McAdam is in the process of purchasing a new dock for the boat launch at St Croix beach. It is presently being constructed by Excel Manufacturing in Harvey Station and should be ready for the summer boating season. The new dock will be 24 feet in length by 8 feet wide with 26 feet by 4 wide walkway, it is constructed of aluminum framing with wooden decking. Village Council applied for and received a $5000. grant from the Community Investment Fund to help with the cost of the project. Unfortunately, this amount only covers approximately 50% of the total and that is why we need assistance from those who access the lake via the St Croix launch.

 In 2012 council solicited financial help from lake users to purchase badly needed concrete pads at the boat launch. Not surprisingly, a large number of people stepped up and helped with donations and volunteer work which enabled us to install the pads. Once again, we are seeking financial assistance from those people who use the St Croix boat launch. All donations of any denomination are welcome and all monies will go directly to the purchase of the dock. Unfortunately, until we have secured the total funds needed, the dock cannot be purchased. Therefore, at this time there will not be a dock in place at St Croix until enough funds have been raised. If you would like to help and make a financial donation please contact the village office at 784-2293 or you can e-transfer to adonahue@mcadamnb.com

A message from Village Council for Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

By | News, Uncategorized

The Village Council would like to let you know the Public Health’s update on COVID-19 today (22 Apr) was extremely positive and we wanted to share some of it with you.

  • Testing at the microbiology lab in Moncton identified no new cases of the disease today.
  • Total number of cases in New Brunswick remains at 118.
  • Of the confirmed cases, 104 persons have recovered.
  • Total testing to date is 11,541.

They also wanted to remind everyone:

  • Under the State of Emergency, everyone is prohibited from knowingly approaching within 2 metres of every other person, except persons with which they reside.
  • Law enforcement officials have been actively enforcing the social distancing protocols. Most of those efforts have been on educating people so they are aware of what they need to do. However, they have begun applying fines to those not socially distancing under the state of emergency guidelines.
  • People entering the Province from anywhere outside the Province need to self isolate for 14 days.
  • Most people have made a point of complying with the directives.

To update you on the McAdam Clinic operations they are still screening people at the door. There is a PPE station either side of the Manor connecting door so no one goes between the Clinic and the Manor without full PPE as a precaution. They are still doing 70% of the routine work – labs, etc. Nancy, Dr. Ramsey and Dr. Smith are all doing about 80% phone visits and 20% face to face visits with patients. They have one room set up for visits and it is cleaned between patients. The Clinic staff are doing everything they can to ensure every person who needs to be seen has the opportunity.

As we have said before, the Village Council want to thank all McAdamites for their support in social distancing and helping their friends and neighbours through these stressful times. For us and many of you, there is no greater place to live than in McAdam. Reach out to us at anytime if you have any questions or concerns.

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

Village Council
