The MacLean Kilties memorial plaque was unveiled at the 2006 Fredericton Highland Games on July 28, 2006. The beautiful MacLean Kilties display in the entrance hall of Old Government House (the site of the Fredericton Games) was designed by Karen J. McLean. Canon Allan Maclean of Dochgarroch (Chieftain of the Dochgarroch Macleans) and Kevin McNamee (grandson of John McNamee, a member of the Kilties) unveiled the plaque.

The MacLean Kilties plaque was sponsored by Clan Maclean Heritage Trust, Clan Maclean Atlantic, the New Brunswick Scottish Cultural Association, and the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick.

A video of the unveiling is available here.
