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.

I knew she kind of had a break down back in the late 1980's many years after Bruce had gotten out of the dorm parent business and she like disappeared for a long time. I knew Bruce a lot better than the misses and Bruce was really quiet during the hard times, he'd tell me his Navy stories of being in Pearl Harbor on liberty down on hotel street breaking things up and running from shore patrol. Barbara always had a stern look back in Fischer and well she was kind of mean looking,and hardly smiled at least to us outside dorms much and I never had any issues with her. Well so long barbara and rest in peace.

I hope Natalie and Nat are doing ok.
Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
