Good Neighbor Day was the idea of Mrs. Becky Mattson, who started the effort in the 1970’s to make this a National day.  In 2003, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution, sponsored by Montana Senator Max Baucus, making September 28, National Good Neighbor Day.

Do you have good neighbors?  Let them know.  Are you a good neighbor?  Do you even know your neighbors?  Next time you see your neighbors, smile and say hello.  A small gesture, but it might just be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

  1. I do my best to be a good neighbor. It’s important to make connections, feel you can count on someone nearby. I must admit that it takes a concerted effort to make those connections though.
