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.

Bill saved my hide once during a bad situation. It was back in 1979 and as I recall he was a big ole boy and this older guy was beating on me pretty good. Bill stepped in and asked if I needed some help and as much as I wanted to see the guy beating on me bleed, I declined because I knew I'd pay in the long run.....Hope Bill is having a good life because for that moment anyway he saved me some grief.
Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

I liked Bill...though there was the ritual beating on lil'r kids, he wasn't much older than me and was very approachable. I called him up a few years ago and he is living in Texas around Dallas.....doing pretty good.

He had gotten in a fight with someone at the ranch and they kicked his teeth in.....literally kicked hid front teeth in......but he was an awesome guy.
