The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one August 10-12, 2012. Have some good news this week? Put it in the Brag Basket.

Baskets from Ghana by Frank Kehren.
Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others. Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.
What can you do in the Brag Basket?
- introduce yourself
- share some great news from this week
- congratulate a friend
- laugh about something wonderful that you tried that failed
- applaud for each other

I just want to say through the Brag Basket I’ve made a great acquaintance whose blog I now read (http://www.hullfinancialplanning.com/). I’m also meeting this person in person Monday morning, and look forward to him and I supporting each other’s work.
And than you, Becky, for your blog and the community you cultivate.
it’s annual rodeo week in our small town. this year in addition to the normal Thurs. Fri. Sat. night performances, we had two pre-rodeo events held downtown focusing on family fun and supported by the small business owners. Great job by our chamber and the rodeo committee in presenting the duck race, a chili cook-off, John Wayne on the big screen (outside theater on the side of the building)and an old fashioned box supper social followed by a gospel music fest featuring some very good local talent! What a way to start off rodeo week, and by the way, our rodeo was voted most improved last year and we are shooting for best of the best this year!

Tom, I’m glad you do that show. It’s a needed service, even though we wish it wasn’t.
