As the end of the year begins to draw to a close, we can take a moment to reflect on the year and what lies ahead. As a club we had a very good year, assisting with the local Special Olympics with our own version of the “Big Event”, a well attended Muster along with $40,000 worth of scholarship to local county seniors headed to A&M. Our annual Fish Fry continues to improve and in 2017 we will have our 25th ANNUAL event. Need to make this ‘Silver Anniversary’ event something to remember, great opportunity for everyone to get involved. Our involvement in the Austin SEC Club Tailgate Kick-off picnic was well attended and a good time was had by all. In addition, our weekly events continue to draw a good crowd, we will continue to find activities that our members wish to participate in. Thanks to everyone who has participated in any of our club events and a special THANK YOU to the individuals that put forth extra effort in pulling off the events and continuing to move our club forward.
Get involved in the WCAMC
As we approach the end of the year we will be looking for individuals interested in serving on the WCAMC board for 2017. If you would like to be more involved and help move the club forward in a positive direction consider playing a bigger role. We will have officer and at large board positions opening up and would love to have you you join the team. We have two at-large board positions that will become available in January. This is a great way to get involved and assist in the direction of the club. These are 2 year terms and require just 4 meetings (once a quarter) throughout the year.
Our monthly luncheon is scheduled this week for a local favorite, Greenhouse Craft Food, and we hope you will take the time to join us and expand your local Aggie network. This is a great opportunity to expand your contacts and look for new endeavors or as a chance to find quality employees that may be in search of a new opportunity.
Aggies go ‘Bowling’
As many of you know, the Aggie football team has accepted an invitation to participate in the Advocare V100 Texas Bowl. The game is slotted for Wednesday 28 December with an 8PM kick-off. Due to the fact that it is the middle of the week, not everyone will be on vacation, and a very late start time, we will NOT be making any arrangements for a watch party.
Many thanks to those of you that joined us through the regular season. We wanted to make sure we shared this information with you as we have had a couple inquiries.
Annual Membership Meeting
Our annual membership meeting has been set for Thursday 19 January at Gumbo’s North in Georgetown. We will have a special menu to order from so be sure to come by and join us. More to come on that in the future but be sure to save the date.
Thanks for a great year, and we look forward to another successful year in 2017.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
