Tell Us: What Makes a Good Neighbor?

National Good Neighbor Day is today, Sept. 28. Share your stories about the neighbors who make your town a great place to live.

A good neighbor comes in many forms.

It may be someone who keeps an eye on your kids when they’re playing outside or someone who pet sits for you when your family is on vacation. Some even go above and beyond to make your community a great place to live by picking up trash in neighborhood parks or volunteering to start youth programs at the local library.

Celebrate the people who make your community thrive by honoring them on National Good Neighbor Day today.

The concept of National Good Neighbor Day began in the early 1970s when Montana resident Becky Mattson pushed to create a holiday that would recognize people who make their neighborhoods a great place to live.

The annual event became a National Holiday in 2003 when Sen. Max Baucus sponsored resolution naming Sept. 28 National Good Neighbor Day.

Are there people in your community who exemplify being a good neighbor? Today is a good time to tell them that you—and the entire neighborhood—appreciate all they do.

Tou-Shay; good comment. Slightly snarky but not really negative. Hit the nail on the head of some of my neighborhood peeves. I too have some really great neighbors and some whom I wish would move somewhere more suited to their our-music-is-your-music-is-your-party living. Try to put out in order to receive good karma
