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.

If I'm not mistaken, that picture was taken in front of the old chapel and back around the mid-60's.

I tend to agree with Jeff and date it even better as after '63 because I know that none were taken like that before I left in October '63. Although I did not recognize any one particular person, some do look familiar and would if it was taken mid '60's. Jeff, didn't you leave in '64? Might it have been taken after I left and before you left?

This one might have been in the 60's. Look at the hair styles.

I left in Dec '64 and would have graduated in '65 if I had stayed. I don't recall our letter jackets having leather sleeves back then. If you look closely at the letter jackets they appear to have leather sleeves. So does anyone know when they went to leather sleeves for the letter jackets?

Jerry,

Our letter jackets always had leather sleeves. I got mine in '63 for track and rodeo.

Cheer up things could be worse, we could die young. Just being sarcastic. Anyway, I cheered up, sure enough, things got worse. :( :( :( :roll: :roll: :roll:


Y'all take care.
