Meet Your Neighbors Sept. 28
As declared by Mayor Donahue in 2020, Good Neighbor Day is every Sept. 28 in North Liberty, and several Neighborhood Ambassadors have made plans to celebrate from 5:30 to 7 p.m. that evening.
These casual meetups and activities are intended for the residents of the particular neighborhood. Masks are expected if distancing is not possible. If a meetup isn’t currently planned for your neighborhood, consider taking the reigns and invite your neighbors to socialize safely outside on someone’s driveway or nearby greenspace.
