In previous Campaign posts we’ve met some of the MacKay kids from Merrickville including Fae and Hal, this week meet their brother, Neil!
Neil is 11 years old and like his sister Fae, was born in the United States. Neil says he enjoys living and growing up in a small town where everyone knows each other. We learnt in Fae’s story, that the MacKay family hosts “wwoofers” (a worldwide movement linking volunteers with organic farmers and growers) on their family farm. Neil’s favourite part about hosting exchange students and “woofers” from different parts of the world is learning new languages. When asked what advice he would give to a newcomer moving to Merrickville, he said “Everyone is nice in Merrickville, don’t be afraid to go up and talk to people”.
Neil likes to play soccer with his friends. One of his favourite places to visit in the summertime is the local ice cream shop. His favourite ice cream flavour is chocolate mint!
