It's that time of the year when I ask residents to nominate organizations, youths or adults who have earned the title "Good Neighbor." That means they went out of their way to do something special that qualifies them to be called a "Good Neighbor."
You can click here and go on line and complete the nomination form.
Please don't nominate yourself because the nomination needs to come from someone else who thinks you deserve to be honored and I have to announce you nominated yourself.
I need the forms completed not later than August 31st so that I can give out the awards at the 3rd Annual Good Neighbor Festival and Picnic on Saturday, September 26th at 10 am until 3 pm in the Good Neighbor Park at Studebaker and Barrios.
By the way, this year's festival and picnic will be a lot of fun: free food and drink, music by The Elm Street Band, pie eating contest, penny arcade, info booths, free bike helmets, games for kids, and a sidewalk chalk art contest.
So mark your calendars and enjoy.
