Tell Us: What Makes a Good Neighbor?

National Good Neighbor Day is Sept. 28. Share your stories about the neighbors who make Radnor 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.

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

On Radnor Patch we've introduced you to a man who works to keep Americanism alive, a woman who runs the Radnor Library book sales, and an educator who has an epic legacy.

You've also met one of the men behind Radnor youth sports clubs, a woman who is leaving the world a better place, and someone who wants to keep Radnor ever green.

The concept of National Good Neighbor Day began in the early 1970’s 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.

Are there people in our community who exemplify being a good neighbor? Today is a good time to tell them that you—and the entire neighborhood—appreciate all they do. Honor them by sharing your story in the comments section below.

A good neighbor is one you know. Building community starts from having opportunities to meet and get to know your neighbors. One suggestion would be to have town hall meetings - informal, led by residents, people could voice their concerns in a fun and open setting, interesting speakers could present on a topic of interest, have some tea and cookies, etc., and enjoy seeing and knowing your neighbors.

My good neighbor lives directly across the street. Knowing that i live alone now, he is right there with his snow blower to clear my driveway and front walk and will not take anything from me other than "thank you." He is always there for me and i am blessed that he and his family are so good to me.
