National Good Neighbor Day
We think Old Town has the best neighbors anywhere! That's why we love the idea of celebrating National Good Neighbor day right here with all of the people who make our neighborhood so great.
National Good Neighbor Day, September 28th, was originally created by a Mrs. Becky Mattson as a way for communities to connect and recognize strong leaders in their neighborhood. In 1978 President Jimmy Carter recognized National Good Neighbor Day with a Presidential Proclamation making it the official day we celebrate how great our neighbors are!
Looking for some ways to recognized YOUR good neighbors? Here are a few ideas!
1. Leave a handwritten note in their mailbox!! Letter writing isn't a thing of the past and in-fact, taking the time to handwrite something shows how much you appreciate them!
2. Make (or buy) them baked goodies! Everyone loves a gift basket of fresh-baked cookies!
3. Share a laugh! Invite your community to (social distancing approved ;-))a get-together!
Let us know how YOU decide to celebrate! Tag us @oldtowncolumbus on IG or Facebook!
Happy National Good Neighbor Day!! Thank you for being OUR good neighbors!
