As school comes to an end and summer approaches , many of us have begin to think of a little time off and family vacations. As we have a chance to take a breath and catch up on things we may have forgotten earlier in the year. Perhaps one of those things is your WCAMC Membership dues? Our club dues go to support club activities for our members as well as scholarships for local students. If you have not yet paid your annual dues it can easily be done online here: wcamc.aggienetwork.com/store
As always, plenty of Aggie sports. After a no hitter last weekend, the baseball team won the series against South Carolina on the road, but could not make the sweep with too many mistakes on Sunday. The team will wrap things up at home this week against Ole Miss. In Track & Field the men’s and women’s team both won second at the SEC conference championships in Alabama and will now prepare for nationals.
We have kicked into full gear planning our annual FISH FRY/Scholarship Fundraiser. Please consider getting involved and assisting with our largest fundraiser as we work to continue supplying scholarships to local high school students headed to A&M, (details below) this event is open to everyone looking to assist in some way. We cannot make it a success without your involvement.
FISH FRY SCHOLARSHIP FUNDRAISER
This is the 24th Anniversary Scholarship Fish Fry Dinner & Silent Auction hosted by the Williamson County A&M Foundation. Our Foundation only has one goal, to provide financial assistance to our local youth who are attending our beloved Texas A&M University. In 2015 you helped us raise over $32,000 for local scholarships and over 1,000 meals were purchased. With your continued support 2016 can be even better. So, get your family, friends and neighbors to come join us at this year’s event.
Here is how you can get involved. First let me give a big shout out to this year’s volunteer coordinator Linda Hale. Volunteers can contact her ahead of time @ firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for jobs, or see her the day of the event. You can also follow this link to sign up for a specific area.
Thanks to Susan Merriman who has stepped up once again to coordinate our silent auction table. If you are an individual or a business that would like to donate an item/service, you will find a donation form online.
This is an easy way for everyone to get involved. Be a ‘Box-o-Fish’ sponsor and you get two tickets with your donation. There are many options available for personal and business/corporate sponsorship’s. A list of sponsorship levels and benefits can be found online by viewing the Fish Fry Sponsorship Form. Please note that the cutoff date for t-shirt recognition will be 27 May!

CCAMC COACH’S NIGHT

Thursday 14 July
HEB Center – Cedar Park
We work hard to offer a variety of events in hopes that your schedule will allow you to join as often as possible. We realize everyone is busy but it is always good to take a little time for friends and expand your network. We will continue our ‘THURSDAY’ event schedule, but keep your eyes open for a few twist as we move through the year.
This week (19 May) we will have our Networking Lunch at BJ’s Brewhouse from 11:45-1:00 (4201 N IH-35, Round Rock). Be sure to make a little extra time at lunch and meet some new folks or say HOWDY to familiar faces. Good opportunity for a little Aggie speak and networking.
The following week (26 May) we will have our Howdy Hour @ Red Horn Coffee House & Brewing Co. If you like to sample the local flavors you will want to stop by and join us.
Remember, if you have a favorite watering hole or restaurant, particularly one that is Aggie owned, be sure to pass it along so that we can ‘ALL’ give it a try and put it in our rotation.
