Today is National Good Neighbor Day!

Did you know that September 28th is National Good Neighbor Day in the United States? It was established in 1978 when President Jimmy Carter signed 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.”

On the heels of a pandemic where many communities and workplaces were shut down, we feel it is more important than ever to be a good neighbor. As a member of the Largo, Florida community for 45 years, we’ve taken the “good neighbor” pledge, and strive for “communitas” – the spirit of community – daily. Good neighbors make great neighborhoods, and we are proud of ours and our history here.

Are you celebrating National Good Neighbor Day today? If not, you should! It simply starts by saying “hello”!
