Water colour artist Roy Tibbits of Stickney, NB will be at the McAdam Station on Sunday, July 30th from 1:00 until 3:00 pm to talk about his McAdam Station paintings and to promote the sale of prints of these paintings.

Roy accepted a commission last Fall from the McAdam Historical Restoration Commission to provide four paintings depicting the McAdam Railway Station in its heyday during the late 40’s and early 50’s.

The original paintings will be on display at the Station and Roy has agreed to the reproduction of 50 copies of each painting to be sold in support of the ongoing restoration of the Station.

The prints have been reproduced on high quality matte paper in two sizes: 16” x 20” and 24” x 30” and 100% cotton canvas on stretchers at 21” x 29” ready to hang.

This will be an excellent opportunity to meet the artist and to purchase a print for yourself while supporting the restoration of the McAdam Railway Station.

Centennial Project Canada 150

Known simply as the Centennial Project, the original display was completed on October 31, 1967 to commemorate Canada’s 100th birthday, the men and women of the Canadian Pacific Railroad and their impact on the nation-building of Canada. The rails in the display represent the ribbon of steel used to connect the nation of Canada from its infancy while the Velocipede and the Pump Car represent those who worked to secure the nation’s linkage.

On July 1, 2017 the 1967 Centennial Project was re dedicated as part of the Canada 150 celebrations. The original project had been updated with restoration of the velocipede, placement of a new roof, and the addition of plaques to explain the exhibit along with a plaque to recognize John McAdam, McAdam’s namesake.

Significantly, Nert Lord and Russell Swan, who had participated in the building of the original Centennial Project were on hand 50 years later to rededicate the updated and expanded 2017 Centennial Project.

We congratulate everyone who participated in the re dedication.
