Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing. I started this so you can introduce yourself, share some good news, or congratulate a friend.
The basket is open all weekend, from October 15-17, 2010.
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. We all cheer, and everyone feels great. It lets you meet each other a bit. Reading each others’ stories brings us a bit closer to being a community.
How does it work? You write a comment on this post, email me, tweet me, or comment on Facebook. You tell something great about your week, or you give applause to someone who did good stuff this week. Or you celebrate something wonderful that you tried that failed.
This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

Mary Larson, Admin Director Watonga Chamber of Commerce says
It is truely amazing how wonderful volunteers are! We just completed our annual event, the Watonga Cheese Festival, and it was a huge success due entirely to the tireless effort that my volunteer staff put in. Our festival director, Rhonda Olsen put in full time hours for months working on this event, for nothing but our thanks. All our other chairpeople worked and worked, both leading up to and during the 2 day event and managed to always keep smiles upon their faces. I just can not say enough for how this amazing group of dozens of volunteers makes this a great event for our Chamber and our community. The world needs more people like the volunteers that we have here in Watonga!

Last night was the premier of a new play from Duende: Drama & Literature, called The Air We Share. This small, touring theater company brings historical plays – written to meet the California curriculum standards – to our local schools at no charge. In that spirit, the premier was open to the community, no charge, first come, first served. The 85 seats of the Stage 3 Theatre, in Sonora, CA were full and the play’s reception was enthusiastic.
The playwright, Rick Foster, said in his opening remarks:
“I was delighted to be part of our decision not to charge for tickets, not to take reservations, but simply to show forth what we have done, and to invite our community –— first come, first served.
For once, the transaction of love would be in the foreground. — No box office between the audience and the performance.”
