The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one May 17-19, 2013.
What good news will you add to the brag basket?
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
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. 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. We all cheer, and everyone feels great.
This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) If you talk more about the people involved than thethings, you’ll be fine.
It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

The City of Marquette, Kansas, emailed this good news in:
The café (J.R.’s Place) reopened under new owners today. The café had been closed for 5 months. The Marquette, Kansas community is very grateful. A café is a community gathering place.

Main Street Iowa Awards were last night, and the Toilet Paper Campaign in Greater Franklin County Iowa took first place in Promotions! I no longer work there, however I was very active in this promotion and am thrilled to see the community got the accolades it so deserves.

Congratulations, Deb and Greater Franklin County!

The book “Ewiger Saatz – Everlasting Yeast,” is at the bindery. The book is a collection of memories from the oldest living generation of Germans from Russia who settled in the three counties of Emmons, Logan and McIntosh in North Dakota. Sue Balcom connected the memories from these inviduals and wound the stories within chapters about gardening, canning, butchering, threshing…all about local food. Pre-publication sales are going well. It is so wonderful to see the renewed interest in culture and heritage, and in this case knowledge of the Germans from Russia who not only survived difficult circumstances but thrived. We hope the book spurs visitors to travel to German Russian country and explore our Prairie Legacy.

Carmen, that is a timely project, with all the interest in local foods. And think of all the delicious tie-in events that you could hold! MMMMMM!
