La Crescent celebrates Neighbor’s Day

One local community took time Saturday to celebrate being a good neighbor.

Dozens of volunteers met in La Crescent to celebrate the 12th annual Neighbor’s Day, where community members walk the city streets, assisting the elderly and disabled residents with things such as yard work or window cleaning.

Volunteers will continue helping in the next couple of weeks due to weather conditions.

“We normally have about 100 or 150 volunteers that come out every year to do this and for some, that’s their way of giving back. Helping somebody that needs a little help and if this is how they can do it, that’s fantastic,” said La Crescent Neighbor’s Day committee member Mike Doering.
