National Good Neighbor Day September 28
“…Understanding, love and respect build cohesive families and communities….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.” – Jimmy Carter, 1978
President Jimmy Carter first proclaimed National Good Neighbor Day as a holiday in 1978 to raise public awareness that good neighbors help achieve human understanding and build strong, thriving communities.
