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.

Just wanted to say that I located Alvin Jones myself, visited with him on the phone several times and he visited me at home. Earlier this year he passed away. No clue on any of the others.

Jeff,

The Wholgemuth's are all in Oklahoma. They are scattered throughout the state. I had some contact with Bill, but it was short lived. I wish I had an email or something but I do not. Maybe someone at the ranch office would put you in contact with them. Now that I think of it, my contact was through either facebook or one of the other media and was second hand at that. Another set of brothers is also in Oklahoma. They are the Lahews. After our time I know, but they are all scattered in Oklahoma too.

Funny you should mention Richard Dale. I was thinking of him the other day when someone asked if anyone could list the past All Around Cowboys. (my mind was only confused because I later knew a Jimmy Dale) While I could not list them all, or even all thee ones during my time at the ranch I did list Larry Pickford, Jess Clark and Soapy Dollar, had the confusion with Richard Dale and of course, myself in that list.

I do like your list of names, haven't thought of those in many years. Maybe, just maybe, someone will come up with some word on some of them.
