Howdy Ags, 
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!

Howdy Ags, 
This month’s Networking Lunch will be at The Rock Sports Bar in Round Rock on January 17.  Also, join us at Gumbo’s in Georgetown for our Howdy Hour/Annual Meeting on January 24 where we will have a few more announcements to share. Howdy Hour starts at 5:30 pm with the Annual Meeting beginning at 6:30 pm.
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!

Howdy Ags,
We are bringing Bus12 back to Georgetown for the Christmas Stroll Parade THIS Saturday, December 1.
There is still room for anyone that wants to join us on Bus12.  If you want to participate in the parade, we ask that you be in the “staging area” no later than 9am. RSVP’s are appreciated at GigEm@wcamc.com or call/text 5128872247.
Alternatively, the parade begins at 10am, so line the streets and cheer us on.  
Due to logistical chalenges we will NOT be gathering for lunch at Hat Creek Burger Company in Georgetown after the parade as previously messaged.
Gig’Em,

Recommended parking near the staging area:
1. There is a Drop Off point with parking in that neighborhood that people can park & walk into the staging area

2. There is a city owned free parking lot next door to Monument Cafe and early that morning should have a lot of availability. One side of the parking lot will have access the other side is behind barricades. Park there and safely walk in the barricaded area to the staging area
