Howdy to the Fort Worth/Tarrant Aggie Moms!

We are mothers of Texas A&M students–both past and present–who like to get together for charitable and educational purposes. Our group has almost 200 members this year. We do a lot of good and have a lot of fun in the process. Come join us!


OUR FIRST GENERAL MEETING: 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19

Program: Taylor’s Place  /  Potluck theme: Tailgating Favorites

Place: St. Paul Lutheran Church, 1800 West Freeway, Fort Worth, Texas 76102 (this is the tall skinny church on the northwest corner of Interstate 30 and Summit)

TaylorsPlace

Join us for a presentation on Taylor’s Place, a College Station ministry that provides a home away from home for Texas A&M students and their families. Taylor’s Place offers free accommodations to families in need so they may visit their student children more often, and a place for students to hang out, host organizational projects and parties, and enjoy a home-cooked meal. However, it’s also an amazing story of a family’s triumph over tragedy.

There is no admission to come to our meetings and you are not required to join. So please come and check us out.
