It’s Friday, and that means the Brag Basket is open for the weekend.
This is where you can share your projects and accomplishments. You can also cheer for other people, give shout outs, congratulate, and even give someone a well-deserved pat on the back.
The Brag Basket is open for everyone, whether from a small town, a big city, or anywhere in the world. (But it’s true that I love small town brags!)
This week, we’re featuring a special brag from the Town of Wister, Oklahoma:
I am very proud of our Local Library. Leslie Langley, the librarian, puts out a monthly newsletter for our community, with several people making contributions (mine is Sherry’s Hodgpodge). She gets requests from people out of town and out of state who happen to have picked up the newsletter in a local businesses. I have attached one of the latest issues.[Note from Becky: I’ve uploaded the July Wister newsletter to share with you, also.]
Leslie says she sends a pdf copy to our state senators and representatives, so they can keep up with what is going on in the little Town of Wister. I moved to this community due to a family members health issues in 2006. And as in all small towns there some things that can be improved, but I have come to admire this community and Leslie Langely is on top of this list with her efforts to pull the community together. I could go on about some of the other things she does, but my brag right now is the “Wister Community News”.

Will you put something in the Brag Basket this week? You can brag on a friend, your own project, yourself, others, anything! Make it personal, and not just an ad. You don’t need special permission, and you don’t have to be from a small town. Just leave a comment right here. There’s no deadline, so you can brag anytime during the weekend, and I’ll open a fresh Brag Basket each Friday.
