Support The Youngsters In Need At Big Oak Ranch

Thursday, December 6, 2018

I get a pictorial account of the happenings at Big Oak Ranch on a regular basis, thanks to the article that Roy wrote, way back when.  What a great place to help youngsters in real need.  Once you read the stories that come with the publication, you will never stop your gifts.  It doesn't have to be a lot to help one of these children.  You can also read about the little acorns that have grown into Oaks with the help of Big Oak Ranch.  

Don't miss a chance to be a part of this movement.  It is so inspiring !  I still remember the first batch of socks that James Beach, my son Ernie and I sent off to Big Oak. Of course at that time the socks were woven in Tyner colors, maroon and gold, GO RAMS!

So, all my buddies and ex-players, get the address from the article and send some money to Big Oak Ranch. 

Thanks to you, Roy, for this and a lot of other good things you have done or have been a big part of. You da man.
