2021 Good Neighbor Winners

Dianna Wara

“Last year at this time when we were all in the middle of the stay at home order she would bake breads, cookies, and other items and give them away for free. Many people tried to pay her but she would not take any money. She did this to brighten the days of others and give us all something to look forward to 3 times a week.”

“I would like to nominate Dianna Wara for this years Good Neighbor Award. During the pandemic last year she reached out to so many with her weekly baked goods on her porch. For weeks she would put out baked goods asking nothing in return. It was her way of spreading kindness in a depression time.”

Congratulations Dianna Wara
