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.

VICA sure changed things after I was in building trades in '60 & '61. We never had any competitions to spur us on. We did build an extension to the chapel which made me very proud. I did find some old relics while we were digging to install the piers for the pier and beams. Trouble is, one of the staff members took them from me at the scene. The best of the relics was a bullet for some large caliber rifle.

I bet that was pretty cool....building something and finding relics. Sorry that they got taken from you. Maybe he thought they were worth something. I wonder when the competitions started. I was on the Opening & Closing Ceremony's team first to go to Nationals and then to State the following year. Fun stuff....I just remember working on the house that Cline started and it was a couple year project, then when he left the new teacher had us build a house from scratch in 6 months. Pretty interesting.
