We made several announcements at our Annual Meeting that I want to share with everyone. In addition to our great Thursday events including Reveille Breakfast, Pizza Night, Networking Lunch, and Howdy Hour, we are adding Aggie Kids Night on the first Wednesday each month. Aggie Kids Night is an opportunity for our Aggie Families with kids to get together and let the kids play as the adults (and possibly older children) visit. We have identified several locations with kid friendly entertainment options and are going to rotate locations monthly. On February 6, we will have a first Aggie Kids Night at Santa Catarina in Cedar Park (500 Cypress Creek Road #170, Cedar Park, TX 78613).
Additionally, we made a slight change to Pizza Night and consolidated to the Georgetown Double Dave’s and discontinued the Cedar Park location. While the Georgetown location has become very popular, the Cedar Park location never really took off the way we had hoped.
Also, mark your calendars. Aggie Night at the Dell Diamond will be earlier this year on May 11. Hopefully the weather will be a little cooler than in early August. We will share more information as it becomes available.
We also eliminated membership dues. You never needed to pay dues in order to join us at any of our events and the money mostly ended up going towards funding scholarships. Instead, we are simply asking for donations towards those scholarships. To that end, we are launching our 12-12-12 fundraising campaign, with the goal of have just 12% of the Aggies in Williamson County give 12 dollars for 12 months.
Thanks and Gig’em!
