I am humbled by the mandate I have been given for the next four years. I want to thank our residents for the trust you have placed in me. Your new Council combines members with years of experience with the fresh energy and ideas of a new member. I look forward to working with my colleagues on your behalf. We have been elected to work with and for our residents.
The Village of New Maryland has a population of approximately 4,500 and is located on the southern border of Fredericton, New Brunswick’s Capital City. We have been incorporated since 1991. In 1993 a new school was built in our community. Today the school hosts children from K to grade 5 and we are very fortunate to have such dedicated teachers. Our fire department just celebrated their 10th year anniversary. Under the leadership of our Fire Chief and many volunteers they provide an excellent service to our Village.
Our fine residents and outstanding community spirit make New Maryland a very special place to live.

15th Annual New Maryland Golf Tournament
Our golf tournament that was held on September 9th was a huge success. The weather cooperated!
We had 12 teams registered and 3 individuals paid for their meals. We had a donation of $175.00 and 47 hole sponsors, $78.00 was raised in a 50/50 draw. We collected $8,628.00 and incurred expenses totaling $2,019.25 which resulted in a net profit of $6,608.75.
The proceeds from the tournament are going toward the purchase of 2 solar powered speed radar units at a combined cost of $7,104.66, not including HST. The New Maryland Community Support Group will cover the difference of $495.91. Staff has been requested to place the order for the units.
I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the following:
- the golfers;
- all the companies who sponsored a hole and/or donated prizes;
- Sobeys (Prospect Street);
- Victory Meat Market;
- Circle K;
- Lion Chris and Lion Ann; and
- The volunteers: Councillor Gisèle McCaie-Burke, Julie, Ann, Anita, Sandra, Mary Ann, Pat, Marie, and Greg.
Thank you all for your continued support!
