About Jeff Nielsen

For people who love Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia! A lot of us lovingly call it “Sack-Vegas” which I personally find hilarious. I hope to have this column be a place for us to discuss our hometown, poke fun at ourselves (nothing too derogatory about our town though), post some old or current pics….whatever we want to do with it.
