7 ways to be a good neighbor on National Good Neighbor Day

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood…

According to the National Good Neighbor Day website, “the spirit of a great neighborhood starts with good neighbors.” Here are 7 ways you can be a good neighbor:


  1. Make your neighborhood a friendlier place simply by greeting or waving to your neighbors. It might inspire them to do the same.


  1. Host a tailgate party at home and invite your neighbors over to watch the game. Go Badgers!


  1. Invite your neighbors over for a cookout or bonfire.


  1. Help out an older neighbor with a chore such as raking the lawn.


  1. Do you have extra vegetables from your garden? Share them with your neighbors.


  1. Join Nextdoor, a free private social network for neighborhoods to stay connected with neighbors and informed about what is going on in your neighborhood.


  1. Pay attention to the safety and security of your neighbors and their homes.
