Howdy Aggie Moms!
What a great time of year! Excitement is in the air at Texas A&M
University, and by now your Aggie has completed their third
week of school and youre hoping they are finding time to study
along with their new activities. Maybe your student has
graduated and is now experiencing a new chapter in their life
that brings exciting and rewarding opportunities.
A wonderful group of moms have committed their support and
energy to serving on our Board. They, along with our Committee
Chairs, have been working all summer to plan an exciting year
for our club. We hope you will find a place to serve and
contribute to the successes we anticipate for CCAM 2015-2016.
We know you will find fellowship and activities that we have
planned throughout the year to be fun and enlightening! If you
are a new mom to our organization, please do not hesitate to
call on myself or any board member, if you have any questions,
concerns or suggestions.
Whether you are a new mom, a transfer mom, a returning
member, or a member of our Ring of Honor, lets make it a great
year of serving TAMU, supporting our Aggies, and to be there
for each other. We are so glad you are joining us as we come
together to serve our students, our community, and build lasting
friendships along the way! Grab a friend and come enjoy the
Aggie Spirit that is like none other!
Aggie Mom Tip #12: Teach your Aggie to separate the maroon
laundry from the white laundry.
Thanks and Gig Em!

The new Aggie Moms of Collin County enjoyed an afternoon tea on Sunday, September 13. Approximately 90 ladies joined their
CCAM hosts for a program of information, friendly visiting, and a full spread of lovely garden party style finger foods and desserts. It
was great to meet the new moms and hear about their Aggies academic endeavors. The new moms are already getting into the
Aggie spirit, and we are looking forward to a wonderful fun filled year. It was the perfect way to spend the day after a great Aggie win
at the new Kyle Field.
This information bears repeating for our
new members who may not be familiar
with the success of our fundraising
efforts during the 2014-15 school year.
Through the following programs, our
clubs fundraising efforts resulted in a
very rewarding year:
Pecan sales, Boutique sales, Scrip,
Poinsettias, Spring Round-up and Silent
Auction, and Raffle
In May of 2015, we concluded the year
with the following donations:
$12,000 in student scholarships
$12,300 to various A&M student organizations
$6,000 to the Texas A&M Foundation
Our appreciation goes to all of our Aggie Moms and
Families and Friends who supported our fundraising
efforts last year... this WHOOP is for you!
