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.

Mike Crane I believe might have some good leads.

Yeah Armando and Lisa (my sister) had a boy. I wasnt real close to them since I haven't lived in Amarillo since 83 but the story I got was Armando was pretty heavy into drugs and Terry followed in his footsteps. Terry was killed in a drug deal gone bad. I haven't heard from or about Armando since then.

Terry? Was that their boy? That is sad......I remember that he would put beer in the kids baby bottle and feed it to him. That was messed up. How is your sister holding up? That must be heart breaking losing your son.....especially due to something the father brought about. :(

Last thing I heard about Lisa was she was working at the University of Texas as the Deans Secretary (I think) She and I dont really keep up with each other. My mom talks to her once in a while. She and I weren't really blood kin. we were related by marriage. yeah she was torn up for a while but shes doing ok now. that's been many years ago
