Come to Jan. 23 general meeting to meet the General
Join us Monday, Jan. 23, at 6:30 p.m. to hear A&M Corps Commandant Joe Ramirez. Feel free to bring family and friends, especially high school students who may be considering joining the Corps of Cadets. We will be gathering in our usual meeting room at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 1800 West Freeway.
In 1979, Joe Ramirez was a member of the Texas Aggie Band. After 31 years of military service, the retired brigadier general returned to oversee the Corps of Cadets. The general always gives an inspiring talk. We encourage you to bring all the corps families that you know.

Great gift idea: A baby Century Tree!
And it benefits our club
Andy Duffie, ’78, is growing and selling Century Tree seedlings as an A&M scholarship fundraiser. He has already funded a President’s Endowed Scholarship (2012), an Aggie Ring Scholarship (2015), and is now working on a Sul Ross Scholarship for the Corps of Cadets.
He sells the seedlings from his web site (aggiecenturyproject.com) for $100 each. The little trees are 16- to 24-inches tall, depending upon the time of year (shorter in winter months, taller by late summer). They are one year old, in excellent condition, and are planted in one-gallon containers. Customers have the option of picking up a seedling from his home in College Station or he will package and ship a seedling by UPS to any location across the southern U.S. (where live oaks grow) for an extra $20.
For every referred customer sent by our club, he sends us $20. For us to get credit, during the online purchase a pop-up box will appear asking the customer “How did you learn of the Aggie Century Tree Project?” The customer simply enters FORT WORTH/TARRANT COUNTY AGGIE MOMS CLUB in that field – which is captured as part of the transaction.
Avoid the line at the meetings by filling out your form in advance and mailing the form and your payment to our Membership Chairman Torie Deremo at the address on the form.
You can use the single membership form to pay club dues, purchase our official 2016-2017 club T-shirt, order a Study Kit for December finals, or order a reusable name tag. Last year’s Study Kit which included gift cards, candy, popcorn, granola bars, and other goodies in a lovely Aggie bucket. Each semester they’re different but the students always love these leading up to finals.
