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.

2013 So Cal Gathering After Action Report

Postby Jerry Nicholson » Mon Sep 30, 2013 6:03 pm

Well, the 2013 So Cal Gathering is in the bag. We did not have the turnout we hoped for. Many that came last year found themselves unable to attend because life happens sometimes. Thank you to everyone who called and emailed that you would not be able to attend.

And, there is always next year. We are going to set this event for the last Saturday in September each year so people can plan for the event and hopefully it is not as busy a time for everyone as the summer is.

Attendance:
Charles Raines (BR 1963-1968, MF & Willis) and his fiancee, Kat, North Hollywood, Ca
Bill Mack (BR 78-80, Anderson,) and his wife, Tricia, Colton, Ca
Gary Hardy (BR 57-63) and his wife, Linda, Santa Barbara Ca
Jerry Nicholson (BR 59-65, Seaton & Aills) and his wife, Laurie, Winnetka, Ca
Bobby Sarpalius, Executive Director CFBRAA, and his wife Cindy, Hurst, Tx

We had a great time visiting and catching up with what is happening at BR, CFBRAA update and goals and with one another.

You can join the Army, you can join the Navy and you can join the Air Force but, you BECOME a Marine!
Having earned the title of Marine it becomes a integral part of who and what we will become later in life.
