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.

I wonder what that house went for in 1983? 55~65K?

That might have been more in line with the Panhandle back then. I would have loved to had been able to buy a house new for that price in 2008, I might have bought two and rented one.....

I understand they don't that anymore. When I was there, we built some houses in Channing for staff housing.
If I am right it is a shame.
Y'all take care

I know Robert's crew built at least one house new for the Channing staff because Charlie Brady was able to get one. I know back in like 1995 or 96 I was up in Channing eating at the Cowboy Cafe (some other name now) and buzzed down to see the Brady's and his oldest daughter opened the door. Well no Charlie so I headed on down the road. I remember Charlie was happy to get a new place and have everything work and it was a great relief to him and his wife.
