Much of what we are able to do as an Association is possible because of those who help sponsor special events. Our ability to help fellow alumni, support our former home and hold reunions would not be possible without the generous contributions of these companies and individuals. Please express your gratitude and support

2015 - 16 Alumni Gatherings/Events

  • Dallas - Feb 13, 2016
  • DFW Golf - May 14, 2016
  • Girlstown - June 11, 2016



     The Veterans Memorial at the Boys Ranch Cemetery is an outstanding example of the very GOOD WORK being done by the Alumni Association.  On Veterans Day, November 11th, the Veterans Memorial and the Veterans Wall of Honor were dedicated on a beautiful crisp afternoon.  Everything about the ceremony was superior.  Nearly 20 veterans who had served from Iraq to WWII were part of the ceremony along with about 60 others.  Current Ranchers did an outstanding job in service as the Color Guard and in playing taps for the dedication.  Representatives from the alumni and Cal Farley's spoke at the event and it was an outstanding dedication ceremony.

     Included on the memorial itself are the pictures and names of those Ranchers who have their all in service to our country.  Dean Warren and Quinten Polk lost their lives in Vietnam and T.J. Carillo was killed n Iraq. 

     Over forty names are included on the Veterans Wall of Honor, and a dozen additional tiles are being ordered.  If you would like to purchase a tile for a veterans, or for yourself as a veteran, go to the Veterans Memorial page of this site for information.  Tiles cost $150.  In addition, anyone can purchase a paver to be place in the memorial for $500, or you can purchase a Veterans Memorial Challenge Coin for $20.  All proceeds go to the memorial and the Cemetery Maintenance fund.


Thank you men and women, who have served and are serving this great country!

 Founding Legacy Partners


What is the future of Cal Farley's Alumni Assn.? What will WE accomplish?  What will WE leave behind?  What will be OUR LEGACY?
For every one of us who went to BR or GT, there were 15 or 20 who applied but could not get in. Where are they now?  God knows.  And but for the grace of God and the generosity of others we would probable not be where we are today.  Many of us benefited from the legacy left by others.
Now it's Our Turn to Leave a Legacy!
Boys Ranch was built on the small and consistent gifts of people across the country.  There have been many large gifts and these have been valuable.  But the small and regular gifts have been the food and electric bills for decades.
The Association Legacy Partners Program provides opportunity and encouragement for many of us to be regular consistent supporters of some very important work.  The Scholarships, the Crisis Support, the Reunions and the Support of alumni through Cal Farley's requires regular, consistant support by many partners.
The Founding Legacy Partners are those who contribute at least $1,000 to the Legacy Partners by Sept 10th, 2015.  All who participate as regular contributors to the work of CFBRAA are Legacy Partners and will be recognized and encouraged at the various levels noted on the All Star Levels tab of this web site.
