Howdy Ags,

Rough weekend on the athletic front as the soccer team lost a close one at Ellis Field and the football team, well to say the least they ‘struggled’ in Oxford.

Note from Lori Ford – WCAggieMom President

The Turkey Supper Fundraiser is our only fundraiser and it raises $ for Aggie scholarships! 20 of them in all, in addition, we donate $100 to 10-15 campus organizations. if you are unable to attend the event they are looking for volunteers as well….. I included the Volunteer Spot Link. We’re still needing some slots filled. It’s a fun crazy day if anyone wants to work that day too! A bunch of Aggie Mom’s having a blast….. we serve almost 1400 meals. You guys know the drill well with your Fish Fry. Fun events for a great cause! We can always use “Men” as well because there can be heavy lifting we need help with.

For every toy you bring you will receive one raffle ticket for some great prizes.
