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.

Has anyone made an effort to see if the book is still in print and if so where we can get a copy?

I've tried a google search for the book, but came up empty handed.

This book is very rare and hard to find. I was lucky I found my copy. I had never heard of the book until it was mentioned here. The reason why I posted the book here was so those that do not have a copy can enjoy it also. If you don't have high speed Internet it is a very slow process.

I search for this book every couple of weeks. If I ever find a copy I'll met you guys know.

Jerry:

I took those JPG shots and put them into a PowerPoint file. All I have to do is place the foreword into another slide and re-save.

I did not know whether or not the Ranch might have some originals.
