GOOD NEIGHBOR DAY

SEPTEMBER 28 TH

Neighbors are an integral part of our social lives - whether at home or at

work. Good Neighbor Day on September 28 th is an annual holiday that

promotes neighborliness and niceness towards people who surround us.

How to Celebrate?

• Be nice to your neighbor - at home or elsewhere.

• If you don’t know your neighbors well, maybe today is your chance to go

up to them and strike up a conversation.

• Bake some goodies and share them with your neighbors. Bring them to

work for your work neighbors.

• Invite your neighbors to your home for a meal.

Did You Know…

…that the word neighbor comes from the Old English word neahgebur,

where neah means near and gebur means inhabitant?

On September 28 th , National Good Neighbor Day is celebrated. This

annual holiday was first proclaimed by President Jimmy Carter in 1978.

Mrs. Becky Mattson from Lakeside, Montana came up with the idea of

a national holiday recognizing the importance of good neighbors in

1971. In 1978, U.S. President Jimmy Carter announced the creation of a

national day aimed at raising public awareness that good neighbors help

achieve human understanding and build strong, thriving communities.

Since then, National Good Neighbor Day has been acknowledged by

various levels of government and is celebrated every year. The holiday

was originally celebrated on the fourth Sunday in September, but in

2003 its date was changed to September 28 th . On this day, Nextdoor.

com, a social network for neighborhoods, announces the recipients of

Nextdoor’s Good Neighbor Award. Everyone can nominate a neighbor or

a group of neighbors by writing a short story about what they have done

to help their local community and make it a better place. National Good

Neighbor Day is the perfect occasion to honor the people who make

significant contributions to creating safer neighborhoods and stronger

communities across the United States.

SWANS CAN BE DANGEROUS

This time of the year, Mother Nature provides our LOE swans with some

common sense. It is mating, nesting, then egg-laying season and they feel

the need to protect their territory against predators including humans,

dogs and other waterfowl. Most of the swans in our neighborhood are

not old enough to mate but some will go through the motions of even

building a nest. The pairs of swans that are old enough to produce young

(cygnets) are normally gentle and can be fed while posing no threat.

However, our males (cobs) will become aggressive and territorial in

trying to protect their mate and their nest. This is usually temporary until

mating season is over. If you are walking past a lake and a swan swims

to your side and follows you, BEWARE! If you see a swan with his neck

back and feathers up such as the one in the picture, please stay away, do

not attempt to feed him and walk on the other side of the street as he

is in ATTACK position. Please warn your nannies and sitters not to stroll

babies around the swans. We must try to remember that the swans are

protecting their territory and readying it for their young. To antagonize,

tease, throw objects at or injure the swans is a felony and we need to be

as cautious of them as they are to us. Thank you for your cooperation.

¼ teaspoon ground white pepper

6 purchased or homemade corn muffins

¼ cup butter, melted

14 ounces frozen cooked, breaded chicken breast fillets,

prepared according to package directions

1 15.5-22 ounce can barbecue beans

1 ½ cups chopped green, yellow, and/or red tomatoes (2

large)

¾ cup bottled ranch salad dressing

* If desired, substitute 5 cups packaged shredded cabbage with

carrot (coleslaw mix) for cabbage and carrots.

Directions

Step 1: For slaw, in a large bowl combine cabbage, carrots,

and green onions; toss to mix. In a small bowl stir together

mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add dressing

to cabbage mixture, tossing to combine. Cover and chill for 2

hours, stirring occasionally.

Step 2: Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F. Cut corn muffins into

1-inch cubes. Place cubes in a large shallow baking pan; drizzle

with melted butter, tossing to coat. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or

until crisp, stirring twice. Set aside.

Step 3: Transfer slaw mixture to an 8- to 10-cup clear glass bowl.

Cut chicken into strips. Arrange chicken strips evenly over slaw.

Spoon beans over chicken pieces, spreading evenly. Sprinkle

corn muffin cubes over beans. Top with tomatoes. If desired,

cover and chill for up to 6 hours.

Step 4: Just before serving, spoon dressing over all.
