Won’t you be my neighbor, East Liberty?
Tomorrow, Thursday March 20 is being recognized as “Won’t You Wear a Sweater?” Day as part of the “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” Days.
Tomorrow would be the 80th Birthday of America’s favorite neighbor, and to honor Mr. Rogers, Mr. McFeely — aka David Newell, the public relations director for Family Communications, Inc. (the nonprofit company founded in 1971 by Fred Rogers) — has a special request.
Mr. Rogers’s friend and speedy-delivery postman is asking everyone to wear their favorite sweater in recognition of Mr. Rogers and his neighborly legacy.
So tomorrow, THURSDAY MARCH 20, put on your favorite sweater, give an extra “hello” and smile to all of your neighbors and remember Mr. Rogers’ and the open-armed friendliness that he stood for.
