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.

On December 06, 2009, Wes passed away after battling cancer for the passed few years. Wes was living in Amarillo, Texas with his wife Bobbie. The family plans on putting a headstone at the Boys Ranch Cemetary in his honor.

So sad about Wesley. I really liked you guys (and I think your sister showed up here and there) while we at BR.

What a trooper he was dealing with cancer like that.
So long our brother.

David, it is always sad when a brother goes. Even more so when it is blood brothers. My prayers and thoughts are with you & the entire Rogers family.

I only now saw this post... and we have spoken since, but I want you to know that having lived with Wesley, Kenneth, and you, I share your grief and feel as though I have lost a brother as well.

I pray Wesley will rest in Peace and be remembered by all.
