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.

Reunion early '80s

Postby Tom Weissinger » Sat Jul 19, 2008 9:58 am

This picture was taken while my son was at the ranch. I have forgotten what year, but would have been '82='84. I never wrote anthing on the back of it, so the exact year remains a mystery. I do recognize several people in it, so I will tell you some of the names. If any of you recognize others, perhaps we can come up with more. I am on the first row, second from right. Lawrence Greer is second from left, third row. Gary Giles first on right, fourth row. Steve Phillips second from right, sixth row. Next to Steve is Charles Pope, fifth from right, sixth row is Kenneth Williams. I have reviewed the attachment here before posting and it all worked for me, hope it works for you guys too. Feel free to add names to any you recognize when you view the picture. There are others that I feel I know their names, but at this moment, I am not sure enough to name them.

Steve phillips, what a guy to work for. He didn't act like a boys rancher and we all had a great time.
Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
