TELL US: What Makes a Good Neighbor?

National Good Neighbor Day is Sept. 28. Share your stories about the neighbors who make your town a great place to live.

A good neighbor comes in many forms.

It may be someone who keeps an eye on your kids when they’re playing outside or someone who pet sits for you when your family is on vacation. Some even go above and beyond to make your community a great place to live by picking up trash in neighborhood parks or volunteering to start youth programs at the local library.

In Brookfield, good neighbors come in the form of friendly passers-by stopping to lend a hand, a community pitching in to weather a natural disaster or simply noticing something amiss and making a call.

Celebrate the people who make the Brookfield community thrive by honoring them on National Good Neighbor Day on Sept. 28.

The concept of National Good Neighbor Day began in the early 1970s when Montana resident Becky Mattson pushed to create a holiday that would recognize people who make their neighborhoods a great place to live.

The annual event became a National Holiday in 2003 when Senator Max Baucus sponsored a U. S. resolution naming Sept. 28 National Good Neighbor Day.

Who are people in the community who you think exemplify being a good neighbor? Let them know that you — and the entire neighborhood — appreciate all they do.
