COLUMBUS – Representative Tracy Richardson (R-Marysville) today celebrated the creation of Good Neighbor Day in Ohio with staff from Union County Neighbor to Neighbor.

Representative Richardson sponsored House Resolution 222, which designates September 28, 2019 as Good Neighbor Day in Ohio.

Good Neighbor Day has been recognized federally since 1978, when President Carter issued Proclamation 4601.

Representative Richardson participated in a service request for assistance along with a local volunteer and Union County Neighbor to Neighbor Board Chair Holly Novak. The experience inspired her to pursue a resolution designating Good Neighbor Day in Ohio.

Union County Neighbor to Neighbor connects volunteers with seniors who need assistance such as transportation, home and yard maintenance, and coordinating with state and local services. They also help seniors stay connected to the community, offering outings such as book clubs, art classes, concerts in the park, and potluck dinners.

“I join with my fellow members of the Ohio House of Representatives in celebrating and encouraging all of us in the great State of Ohio to commit to helping one another and to building stronger communities,” said Representative Richardson.
