If you have a special connection to your grandparents, share it with your clients and leads. They’d love to know a story or two that you share in your next newsletter or social media. If you have a particular farm and know some grandparents in them or have clients who are proud grandparents, you can feature them as well.

September 16 – National Cleanup Day

This is definitely a holiday that everyone and anyone can get behind. Who doesn’t want to make their neighborhoods and surrounding areas cleaner? This is what National Cleanup Day is all about.

September 28 – National Good Neighbor Day

Another proclaimed national holiday by Jimmy Carter in 1978, National Good Neighbor Day reminds us to do nice things for our neighbors.

You can put together a simple tips list of ways that your clients and leads can be good neighbors. Post this in your next newsletter, create a blogpost about it and post on social media. If you can get creative and produce a colorful infographic to go with it, then the better your message will be read!
