Good Neighbors All Over Fox Point, Bayside

Need a reason to smile? National Good Neighbor Day is Friday. Share your stories about the neighbors who make Fox Point and Bayside 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 your community thrive by honoring them on National Good Neighbor Day on Friday.  

And we've got so many of them in Fox Point and Bayside. Here's a list of just a few who have given back in big ways:

  • Fox Point Man Steps Behind The Camera For Familes In Need
  • Jewish Santa Crosses Cultural Divide

  • Fox Point Native Raises Thousands to Save Honduran Baby

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 your 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.

I currently have both wonderful neighbors and unfortunately very poor neighbors which makes me appreciate the good ones even more! My exemplary neighbors have "adopted" my children as their Grandchildren. They have become family. We would do anything for each other. They have brought meals when we are not well, checked on my children when they are sick, help shuttle them when I am not enough and celebrated birthdays and milestones with us along the way. I am forever grateful for the coincidence that has brought us together.
