Why not let it begin at home? Upgrade your living environment. Not just with bricks and mortar, curtains and cushions,
but through friendship and kindness. Healthy relationships make for a happy nation. Good neighbourliness
is itself a form of homeland security. Wholesome interaction bonds a people. Often Singaporeans complain that our society
is getting too individualistic too fast. We yearn for the good old kampong spirit and the gotong-royong fun of bygone
years. Good Neighbour Day is a fantastic way to revive all that. Together we can make it a day to build bridges, celebrate
community bond and trust, block-by-block. All it take is by loving our neighbours as ourselves.
2006 THEME My Neighbour My Friend
Go the Extra Mile:
I will break the ice by being always the first to initiate a chat whenever I meet a neighbour
I will knock on doors and volunteer myself to be a blessing in any practical way.
I will grocery-shop once-a-week for the helpless house-bound.
I will thrill the kids in my block with gifts and games.
I will have neighbours over for a fun-filled movie night,
I will care for the elderly poor by hosting a meal just for them
I will throw a block party for my neighbours in the month of November.
I will round up single professionals for an evening of coffee and cakes,.
I will conduct a course on emergency-readiness for my block.
I will appreciate neighbours with thoughtful words and little gifts on November 13 Good Neighbour
