Happy National Good Neighbor Day 2023

By
Industry Observer CDRE #01044712

Every year on September 28th, and this year on Thursday September 28, 2023, neighbors around the nation celebrate unofficial National Good Neighbor Day to acknowledge importance of good neighbors. In 2003, National Good Neighbor Day was changed from the fourth Sunday in September to September 28.

Generally, neighbors become friends, watch out for each other, gather together for events, and a neighborhood becomes a large family.

National Good Neighbor Day was created in the 1970's 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.”

I want to wish everyone at ActiveRain community a Happy National Good Neighbor Day!

This would be a good day to have a neighborhood block party, haha.  My neighbors and I were just reminiscing about the block parties we had during covid.
