Speaker: Andy Duffie ’78
Andy is a Century Tree Representative. The Century Tree is one of the most visible and well-known landmarks on the Texas A&M, where hundreds or perhaps even thousands of Aggies have gotten engaged under its boughs. Andy created the Century Tree Project, which has funded several endowments at Texas A&M.
We will announce the 2019-20 Potential Board Slate.
Although we might conduct a little business, we decided to make our December meeting our Holiday Party! Come and join the fun as we celebrate our new club friendships!
We hope everyone enjoyed the October meeting and presentation by the Traditions Council! We enjoyed it so much that we voted to send a $500 donation to the Texas A&M Foundation specifically for the Traditions Council. That’s “good bull” Ags!
If you missed the meeting and want to learn more about Aggie terminology like “good bull” and Aggie traditions like our “gig em” sign or Aggie Muster, visit Aggie Traditions. We will post the meeting minutes shortly.
To sum it up, here are the lyrics to “The Spirit of Aggieland.”
Some may boast of prowess bold
Of the school they think so grand
But there’s a spirit can ne’er be told
It’s the Spirit of Aggieland
We are the Aggies, the Aggies are we
True to each other as Aggies can be
We’ve got to fight boys
We’ve got to fight!
We’ve got to fight for Maroon and White
After they’ve boosted all the rest
Then they will come and join the best
For we are the Aggies, the Aggies are we
We’re from Texas AMC
Thanks and gig em!
