GENEROUS 2014 SPONSORS
Much of what we are able to do as an Association is possible because of those who help sponsor special events.

The 2014-15 CFBRAA Year began on a high note with great times, great memories and great expectations. We were blessed with beautiful weather for golfing, fishing, picnicing and banqueting. It was a little warm at the rodeo.
It was an absolutely beautiful day for golf and nearly 60 enjoyed a delightful round, The Golf tournament was a valuable fundraiser for us, netting the Associatio nearly $4,000 (Note the sponsors to the left). The Banquet was a superlative event in spite of the lack of plates...
The recognitions of distinguished alumnus Rodney Ruthart and distinguished staff, Lamont and Frances Waldrip were the highlights of th evening. See their presentations by clicking on YouTube in the menu bar.
|The Silent Auction included some unusual items and raised over $4,500 for the Crisis Support fund.
This reunion marked the beginning of the end of a couple of special projects. This year we will conclude the "Founding Legacy Partners" campaign. All who ive $1,000 Foundation by July 1st will be recognized as Founding Partners. (See information below)
We will also wrap up our fundraising for the Veterans Memorial. All who wish to have tiles included on the Veterans Wall need to submit orders by next reunion. All funds raised will go to build the memorial and maintain both the memorial and the Boys Ranch cemetery. Click on the Veterans Memorial link above to find out more.
