Introducing our theme for this year: Aggie Moms – Stronger Together

It’s an Aggie Moms Club tradition that the each club President chooses a theme for the upcoming year. My immediate thought was “Stronger Together” because I know the strength of Aggie Moms & I know first hand what we can accomplish together. When I thought of an image to exemplify that theme, Rosie the Riveter from WWII was the first thing that came to mind. We’re living through extraordinary times and dealing with unprecedented issues – much like WWII. And in the same way, the women of WWII stepped up, took charge and made things happen.

We Aggie moms have that same steel grit & determination; that “get it done” attitude and that “better days are ahead!” attitude.  Whether we’re connecting to help our students, participating in order to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, or making new friends and enjoying this special time together, we are always Stronger Together.

Here’s to a GREAT year!

Membership renewal time!

Howdy Aggie Moms!

Students will be heading to College Station soon (or not), and it’s time to renew your membership in the Montgomery County Aggie Moms Club (or join for the first time)!

We have a calendar of FUN EVENTS planned for the entire year that you won’t want to miss – check them out by looking at our Calendar. And after you renew, don’t forget to order your Aggie’s GOODIE BAGS for Fall and Spring finals!  (Club members only – another reason to join!)

The theme for our first (virtual) club meeting on September 10 is Aggie Mom 101. It will be a great opportunity to get to know the Aggie Moms in the area – we hope to “see” you there!

Aggie Face Masks from Aggie Network

Howdy!

My name is Natalie Parks and I serve as the Texas A&M Class of 2022 Junior Class President. With the recent university announcement mandating face coverings on campus during the upcoming fall semester, Class Councils is excited to announce that affordable and high quality Aggie Face Masks are now available for purchase! 

These face masks are available for purchase at tx.ag/facemasks, and pickup will be on campus during the first week of school. Shipping is not currently offered.

We will also do a giveaway for current students through our Class Instagrams starting today! Proceeds from these sales will benefit the respective Class Gift Fund, which is our Class legacy. We would greatly appreciate it if you would please consider sharing this mask sale information with the Aggie Moms in your club!

Thank you for all that you do! 

Thanks & Gig ‘Em!
