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.

Word was received a few minutes ago that Karen Burnett was found dead in her bedroom this afternoon by a relative. She was a housemother at BR some years ago. We extend sympathy to her sister, Pam Lancaster, and her family. A week or so ago, Karen’s son Keno lost his wife and Pam, and Karen’s mother fell recently, so these families are going through a tough time. I will send more details when I get them.

I know Pam Lancaster but I wonder if Karen lived in Lutz back in the late 70's early 80's.I knew the Burnetts since they were DP's in Lutz and I went to school with Keno. ... ay-burnett
