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.

Looking for Kenneth 'Gabby' Hines

Postby smprior » Mon Feb 05, 2007 1:03 pm

I hear that he is in Amarillo, and ill. Does anyone know how to reach him or have any info on him? I worked for him in the Dining hall when I was at the ranch.

Scott,

I'm pretty sure Gabby lives in Amarillo, and I know he is in touch with Kim Reeves at the Town Office. He is probably also listed in the Amarillo phone book. Michael Rogers also is very likely to know how to reach Mr. Hines.

There are a lot of us who remember Gabby as a very jovial Santa Claus from our youth, and he brought a lot of joy along with presents to many, and whether it was Christmas or not, he always has had a special twinkle in his eye that let people know he cared about them. Still does, I'd bet.

I had heard years ago that Gabby had passed away, or was it his wife Flabby? Wait, they were married & not brother & sister, right? Gabby & Flabby.....I just don't remember....too old....LOL

actually, until recently he was living in Amarillo, but I believe he moved to San Diego where his son lives. Marie did pass away several years ago though.
