Famous in a Small Town

Living in a small town can really be a mixed bag of pros and cons.  Although our location and population are limited, opportunities are not.  Toots had the opportunity to participate in a local radio show to promote her school's fall festival activities.  She even recorded a radio advertisement to promote the festival. 

This radio show, a Thursday night tradition here in Smalltownland, takes place at a local pizza restaurant on the historic town square.  At this time of year it is mostly football talk......

Here we have the football coach discussing the upcoming Friday night football game. 

And here we have Toots, on the far left, with her crew of friends and fellow fall festival promoters. 

You can see they were serious about reviewing the information they were about to discuss, for everyone to hear. 

Toots has a great group of friends who are full of school spirit and always ready to participate in just about anything. 

She certainly didn't have any problems taking the microphone from our local DJ to discuss all school things which she felt pertinent at the time.  

Proceed and be bold.....she doesn't seem to be having a problem with that one.

  2. One of the pros is that in a small town everyone knows everyone and individuals are given more opportunity to participate. I like that Toots and her friends are eager and encouraged to be part of the community...might not happen in a big city! Brava Toots!

  3. I love it when a radio station supports its community that way. What a great opportunity for your girl--she can put it on her resume!

  4. It is great experience for Toots to become involved in something like this at an early age. In my business career, I saw many competent adults freeze when it came time to speak in public. If she can speak and write, she will always be able to pay her bills.

  13. That's great. It is so good to see kids with the self confidence to do things like that. Your local radio station should be commended for providing the outlet for kids like your Toots to speak up about something important to her. That group of girls look like a lot of fun.
