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.

Wichita Falls Man Killed in Motorcycle-Semi Collision on US 287

A motorcyclist was killed Wednesday evening in a collision with a semi.
The accident happened just before 6 PM at US 287 North and Peterson Road in Wichita Falls. According to DPS, a pickup passed the motorcycle but the driver of a semi truck behind the pickup did not see the motorcycle and struck the bike from behind pinning the rider under the truck.

69-year-old Richard Arthur Amon was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the semi was uninjured. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

DPS officials say they are not sure if Amon was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, but a helmet was found at the scene. DPS says the crash remains under investigation but alcohol or drugs did not play a role in the accident.
