Celebrating Good Neighbor Day in Long Beach

Your local neighbors in Long Beach are often who you turn to when you need a watchful eye on your home while you are away or help with pets, kids, or the mail. Or, it may be that you are new to the area and have yet to meet your neighbors. Maybe you’ve noticed someone is new on your block.

September 28th is the perfect day to do something about any and all of these. That’s because it’s National Good Neighbor Day. President Jimmy Carter made it a national holiday way back in 1978 as a way to always maintain that community spirit. It’s because neighborhoods had strength, unity, and security to our country. They keep us together in times of trouble. 

Just think about the recent national disasters with the hurricanes. It’s neighbors helping neighbors. And, we can’t ever forget that.

Whether you send a handwritten note, tell them in person, or send a sweet gift, National Good Neighbor Day is the best time to start focusing on the benefits of having neighbors.

We’ve got some great gift ideas that you can order in our Long Beach flower shop or through our website:
