Site Announcements

If you are not already a paid CFBRAA member I want to encourage you to become one.
Our association is doing good things and helping out many with special needs and scholarships.
We aren't doing as much as we would like to do and not as much as one would expect, especially if you or someone you are close to are in need of financial help.
We are limited by the funds we have available, so what we can do is modest compared to the needs.

Here is what we were able to accomplish this year with less than 300 paid members:
1. Helped 15 families in crisis situations, providing medical help, housing, utilities, clothing, etc. You provided nearly $11K in crisis support to families.
2. Helped 9 alumni families send their children to college, providing $6K in scholarship assistance.
3. Helped scores of new alumni with transportation, providing $4K for vehicle maintenance and fuel for the Alumni Support Center.
4. Provided $500 to the residents of the Alumni Support Center to help with Christmas presents for their families.
5. Provided $500 to the homes at BR as awards for the Christmas Contest winners.

Who is the boy Mr. Farley has his arms around in all the pic

Postby gghobs.est2008 » Sat Jul 19, 2008 10:25 pm

I recall shaking hands with a man about 10yrs back that said he was the boy that Mr. Farley had his arms around. example: The statue out front of the musem. If you know who he was? or even better if you are HIM can you please contact me or reply and tell me of the story. I would love to know how that moment in time came to be. I am a sheep who is out gathering other sheep to lead to the sheperd. I would love to beable to tell non-belivers of the day that a young man walked side by side Mr.Farley.

That was Earl Jordan. He lives in Phoenix. You can send him a PM on the board. He gets on here some but he has dial up and it is slow so he isn't as active as most.

Not just the statue, but also the well-distributed picture has Mr. Farley with Earl.

They are walking down the Spur road just before the Gate.

More importantly than who is in the picture,is the fact that what he represents.He represents ALL of us who have passed thru that gate.

If I'm not misstaken, Earl had hurt his arm and Mr. Farley was walking him back to get him looked at.

If I am remembering right, Earl told me Mr Farley had just kicked his butt for some transgression right before the picture was taken.
