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.

Roy Dormire Surgery

Prayer requests for our friends and family and information about those who are ill or injured. There has been enough activity in this area lately that I felt there should have a separate forum.

Subject: SURGERY !!!!!!!!!



WELL I GO INTO THE HOSPITAL ON THURSDAY AT 5:30 A.M. FOR MY SURGERY. THE DOCTOR CALLED ME YESTERDAY AND SAID THE CHEST X-RAY THEY TOOK OF ME WAS CLEAR NO CANCER IN THE LUNGS. HE ALSO TOLD ME I WOULD BE ON THE TABLE AT LEAST THREE HOURS MAYBE MORE. THEY ARE GOING TO TRY AND KEEP THE INCISION ON MY NECK SMALL BUT THEY CAN'T GUARANTY IT WON'T BE BIGGER THAN FOUR TO FIVE INCHES.



JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT AND PRAYERS YOU'VE GIVEN ME ALONG THE WAY. BUT MOSTLY FOR HOW I WAS RAISED NOT TO GIVE UP AND TO KEEP FIGHTING NO MATTER WHAT THE MOUNTAIN WE HAVE TO CLIMB.



I AM NOT AFRAID THE LORD IT WITH ME. YEA THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF DEATH I WILL FEAR NO EVIL FOR THY ROD AND STAFF COMFORT ME. PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO OTHERS WHO KNOW ME AND THANK THEM FOR ME FOR THE MANY PRAYERS

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.
