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

    BR/GT Gatherings in Memphis (actually Tunica, MS, but that's just across the river from Memphis) and Maryland (Kent Island, more specifically) are coming up in March.

   Ronnie Crouch has again arranged for the Memphis Gathering to be held at the Hollywood Casino in Tunica (1150 Casino Resort Strip Blvd, Tunica, MS 38664).  While we will all plan to get together on Saturday evening, March 21st, the whole weekend can be filled with vacationing, socializing, gathering and etc.  (Be careful about the "etc.").  You can make reservations at the Hollywood by calling either Charlie Brown (662-910-0369) or JoAnn Hicks (662-613-0675) at the Hollywood.  Say you are from Boys Ranch and you will get the special rate of $79.  Payers rates apply (that is to say, the more you play, the lower the rate may be).  Call Ronnie if you have other questions (256-627-1389).

     Memphis is followed by Maryland!  The following Saturday, March 28th, Alumni will be gathering again at the Harris Crab House on Kent Island (click the link for directions) for the Maryland Gathering.  Bill Sarpalius has arranged for this event where we will have a room upstairs for meeting and eating and...  We will start gathering at the Crab House (crabs are not in season) around 5 p.m.  It's everyone for themselves so eat and drink whatever you want...its all on you.  Its cherry blossom time in the area so plan on a family weekend.  

     If you are making plans to attend either of these events please email or phone Bob Sarpalius so he can start giving them a headcount;  (817)-788-8782.  Make your own reservations at the Hollywood!

    Both of these gathering places are surrounded with venues for the whole family so plan to make at least a weekend of it and spend time with your BR/GT family.

 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 June 30th, 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.
