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.

Lanny,

I think I saw that James had passed away in either April or May of this year. I think it was in the last Alumni newsletter. Could you find any details for us? He and I graduated together and had a common interest in a girl in Amarillo. He even was married to her for awhile.

Lanny,

Thanks. I just came back to this post only yesterday and read all this info for the first time then. I somehow missed it until then. The odd thing about all of this is that I saw it in one of the alumni newsletters and it happened three years before. Another oddity is that I lived only a county away and never knew he was that close to me. I certainly would have visited him had I known.
