I want to thank everyone who came out for our annual membership meeting in January. Thank you to Denise & Shuler Page ’75 and their staff at Gumbo’s North for providing the location. We may have to look for a new spot next year as the group continues to grow. Enjoyed seeing familiar faces as well as the crew of new attendees. We had several first timers who joined us for the meeting, best of all they are looking forward to getting involved in other club activities.
I would like to thank the board for their continuing service, working to put together activities that allow us all to gather in an arena that best suits our personal needs, while supporting the fundraising of the Williams County A&M Foundation and its efforts to raise money for scholarships.
A special welcome (and a big thank you) to our newest board members, Michael Howell and Courtney Alcott, who will be serving two year terms as our at large representative board members. If you are still interested in getting involved in some capacity with the club there are plenty of opportunities in the horizon, Fish Fry committee will be kicking off soon as well as our Muster committee. If you are interested in getting involved in any way please email us at GigEm@wcamc.com

WCAMC Endowed Scholarship
I would like to thank the members of our club who voted to work toward an ‘ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP’ to recognize our 25th Anniversary of providing scholarships to local students looking to attend A&M. This will be the first endowed scholarship from our club and we look forward to funding it throughout the year. We will work with the A&M Foundation to establish this scholarship and all donations will be tax deductible.
Thanks to the generosity of a few WCAMC members we had a few pledges to contribute $2,500.00 the night of the annual meeting, which means we are already 10% towards the necessary $25,000.00 needed for the endowment. This will allow us to have a scholarship in perpetuity recognizing all the efforts over many decades for those that started and continue to work toward raising funds for future Aggies.
Please look for continued details on how you can contribute to this fund as we finalize the information with the A&M Foundation.
