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.

Damn I thought it was last weekend? I'd say I was getting old but that could offend some so I'll just say I screwed up instead :oops: BTW I hope it is a good and fun event.

Well, the Austin fling came and went. Ain't we glad!! For what ever reason, people just aren't interested. I think there were 20 showed up and for the most part, uneventful. The usual around the table introductions and expressions of life time accomplishments. Jerry Nickolson even got mentioned. (don't worry, Jerry, it won't cost anything). The food was decent as were the prices. I didn't get any pictures, i don't know if anyone did. BUD-E-UH,BUD-E-UH, BUD-E-UH, THAT'S ALL FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8)

I believe intentions are well meant and I guess we are just different now and that is at times a hard expectation to accept. Well at least ou attended and you did your part by reaching out ya know. :| A lot of effort has been put into Dallas and I guess time is the driver on this kind of event and really i am not sure what the answer is on how to get more attendance.
