PARENTS’ WEEKEND WRAP-UP!

What a great Parents’ Weekend — between all of our kids’ events and the many on campus events, it was exciting…and exhausting! We had two Dallas County Aggie Moms installed at the Federation Meeting on Saturday morning: Peggy Nolan is 1st VP Membership, and Karen Hunter is Aggie Mom Camp Co-Chair. We also presented a check to the Singing Cadets for the February concert, presented the Corps Leadership Award and met with one of our Endowed Scholarship recipients. All of this while selling our Boutique items and raffle tickets.

MEETING LOCATION

Our General Meetings are held at University Park United Methodist Church, 4024 Caruth Blvd., Dallas, TX 75225.  Note: this is a new location for us.  We are no longer meeting at the Extension Center on Coit Rd.


Dallas County Aggie Moms’ Club is a service organization that supports Texas A&M students and their parents.  At our meetings and special events we learn more about the University from each other and from great guest speakers.  We also raise funds to provide student scholarships and financial support to student organizations. Aggie Dads and friends are welcome at most of our events.
