Supporting Kedgwick´s Centennial

The community of Kedgwick in northern New Brunswick will be celebrating its centennial in 2015.  J.D. Irving, Limited has partnered with the community to assist with their celebration plans.


JDI has made a major financial donation toward the construction of a centennial tower that will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Parish of Kedgwick, a forest products community.  The tower, named the "Pioneer Tree", will be a tribute to the pioneer families that founded and built the area over the years.
