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.

Sothern Ca/West Coast Gathering Sept 28, 2013

Postby Jerry Nicholson » Sat May 18, 2013 9:01 am

Ladies and Gentlemen,


We have a date for the Southern California/West Coast Gathering. We have set it for Saturday, September 28, 2013 12 noon to 3 PM. I am still working on a location.
It will either be at the church in Winnetka, Ca where we had it last year or at my son's condo reception room in Chatsworth, Ca. If we get the condo reception room we will also have
access to the pool for those who want to swim.

If you can make the event please respond back to me at so I can plan the food for the event. I am looking at BBQ beef sandwiches with potato salad, macaroni salad,
garden salad, chips, baked beans and some sort of deserts. We will have soda, lemonade and water.

Hope to see you in September. I will send out periodic follow up emails with the list of those confirmed to attend.

For those who can't make it to the Southern California Gathering there will be a Northern California Gathering on October 5, 2013. Karl Sarpalius; is the point of contact for the Northern California gathering.

Confirmed to Attend
Jerry Nicholson + wife Laurie
Bobby Sarpalius + wife Cindy

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.
