On Dr. Mackay"s Day, the various Christian churches in the Tamsui area will be shown in addition to the many contributions of Dr. Mackay, allowing the local public to get a feeling for the community culture which is put on display.  

Activities will continue to be planned based on ties to the past and various local resources will be combined to present the abundant meanings of Dr. Mackay"s Day in Tamsui.
