NATIONAL GOOD NEIGHBOR DAY
Posted on Sep 12th, 2016

Good neighbors often become friends, they watch out for each other, lend a helping hand and are there for advice when asked.   Neighbors are there when we need to borrow something, to get our mail for us when we are on vacation, to watch our homes and sometimes to watch our children and our pets as well as the many other things we do with our neighbors.
 
To celebrate National Good Neighbor Day, do something nice for your neighbor today. Use #GoodNeighborDay to post on social media.
 
HISTORY
National Good Neighbor Day was created in the early 1970s by Becky Mattson of Lakeside, Montana.  In 1978 United States President Jimmy Carter issued Proclamation 4601:
 
 “As our Nation struggles to build friendship among the peoples of this world, we are mindful that the noblest human concern is concern for others. Understanding, love and respect build cohesive families and communities. The same bonds cement our Nation and the nations of the world. For most of us, this sense of community is nurtured and expressed in our neighborhoods where we give each other an opportunity to share and feel part of a larger family…I call upon the people of the United States and interested groups and organizations to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.”
 
In 2003, National Good Neighbor Day was changed from the fourth Sunday in September to September 28.
