WCAMC Newsletter: Thur Family Night @ Double Dave’s in Round Rock & Cedar Park
Living in central Texas we can be sure spring is on the way. 80 degrees one day and 40 the next. I was told when I first came to Texas, “If you don’t like the weather just wait 5 minutes, it’ll change”.
Plenty going on over in Aggieland as well. The National Indoor Track Championships will be held in College Station this weekend. A great opportunity to literally see some of the fastest individuals in the country in our own backyard. Softball is off to a fantastic start, with any luck the baseball will make a few adjustments after their rough weekend in Houston against our former BIG XII opponents. The women’s basketball team will once again make an appearance in the national tournament while we anxiously wait to see if the men will be invited to the NIT. Plenty of talent but youth and inexperience caught up with Coach Kennedy and the team this year.
With spring brings the onset of planning for our club. We have two big events on the near horizon, both of which gives all of our members the opportunity to get involved.
We begin next week with our first official Fish Fry committee meeting (see details below) This is our scholarship fundraising event and we will celebrate 25 years of hosting a fantastic event. Needless to say, there is something for everyone and you are invited to get in early by attending the committee meeting. We can use fresh faces and new ideas to celebrate 25 great years and make sure this event is even more memorable than those of the past.
The following week we will have our Muster Committee meeting (details also below) Our committee chair Abby has done a great job of getting things in place but we can certainly use some assistance.
Fish Fry Meeting
Our 25th annual Fish Fry is on the horizon. We cannot make this event work without the amazing effort of our club members and volunteers. The first meeting to begin working on the event has been set for March 13th @ 6:30PM. The meeting will be held at the Georgetown Health Foundation Community Rooms (tx.ag/GHFCRooms). Please mark the date/time on your calendar so that you can be sure and join us. We will have additional details in the near future.
We all know the date (April 21st) and now it is time to put some finishing touches on Muster 2017. While it is necessary to secure a venue early, we have already addressed that as well as our speaker for this year. There is still plenty to do and we would appreciate you joining us at Mel’s in Georgetown on Monday 20 March at 8PM. We will have a private room to meet but feel free to grab a bite prior to joining us.
2017 Scholarship Applications available
If you are aware of a Williamson County high school student that has been accepted for enrollment in the Fall of 2017, scholarship applications can now be found on our club website (wcamc.aggienetwork.com/scholarships). The deadline for scholarship applications is 1 April ’17, at which time our scholarship committee will spend extensive time reviewing each application and selecting this year’s recipients. We will recognize and award the scholarships on April 21st at our local Aggie Muster Ceremony.
We will continue 2017 with our weekly events where hopefully you can find something that fits both your time frame, as well as your interest. Please also keep in mind that we are here to serve the members of our club, with that said we are always open to suggestions and ideas of other activities that will serve our members. Just keep in mind, it may also allow you the opportunity to step up and volunteer to lead a new activity.
The first Thursday of the month will be our Reveille Breakfast at Rudy’s in Round Rock, where you can stop by on your way to work for a little social time and a great breakfast taco. On the second Thursday we will continue our Family Night at Double Dave’s. Make plans to join us at either the Cedar Park or Round Rock location for great pizza rolls and a night where you do not have to cook. On the third Thursday we will have our Networking Lunch. Whether you are in the market for a new job or looking for exceptional candidates as new employees, this is a great opportunity to connect with other Aggies. Finally, now that football season is over (a positive in many ways) we do not have any watch parties so we will resume our Howdy Hour on the fourth Thursday of the month beginning in February.
We look forward to seeing familiar faces and welcoming all the new ones to all of our club activities. Remember to join our club page on Facebook (fb.com/wcamc) so you can stay up to date with all that is going on around the county.
Look forward to seeing everyone at one of our upcoming events.
