Following the lead of the Texas A&M main campus, the Williamson County A&M Club will be hosting the 2019 Aggie Muster on Monday, April 22, 2019, in the evening. We understand that moving the date of Muster is nothing to be taken lightly and appreciate everyone’s understanding in the matter.
Keep an eye on your inbox and our facebook page for more details as we have them.
We hope to see you all on April 22.
From an official campus article:
The one-time date change for the campus Muster ceremony from its usual day of observance on San Jacinto Day, April 21, was prompted by the date coinciding with the Easter Sunday holiday, a time when traveling to and from campus may be difficult for members of the Texas A&M campus community and loved ones of deceased Aggies being honored.
Aggie Muster Committee Chair Helena Shakesby, a Human Resource Management graduate student and member of the class of 2019, said the decision was made “with the input and support of a wide array of campus and community representatives.” Community representatives included Texas A&M representative student organizations (Student Senate, Class Councils, Corps of Cadets, Graduate & Professional Student Councils, etc.), Texas A&M University administrators, The Association of Former Students, Class of 1969 representatives, former honored families, Transportation Services and Reed Arena support staff.
”The decision to hold the campus Muster on a different day was made with extensive care and consideration for those served by our Muster and those impacted by the event itself,” Shakesby said. “Opinions were gathered and voices were heard throughout the process, with full acknowledgement of the challenge of how to best serve the campus community. The Aggie Muster Committee is proud to organize and hold a Muster that as many Aggies as possible can attend.”
Thanks and Gig’em!
