For our October General Meeting, we were excited to host Joseph Rodgers from the 12th Can Pantry. The goal of the 12th Can Pantry is to eliminate hunger at Texas A&M, bring awareness to food insecurity in college communities, and show others the power of the Aggie spirit. The 12th Can is affiliated with Brazos Valley Food Bank as a program partner, and they reside under the Student Government Association. If you would like a link to the recorded zoom meeting let us know by emailing us at SanAntoniomoms@aggienetwork.com.
In addition to dropping off food items at Aggie Park (We will let you know when we will have ‘drive thru’ drop off) Joseph sent us this information which gave additional ways you can help fill their pantry:
Aggie Mom University is now live and open to all club officers and current members!

Next General Meeting:
Tuesday, November 3, 2020
at Aggie Park and via Zoom
SOCIAL TIME:6:00 PM
Program: Home Away From Home
Speaker: Tanya Gillespie
For our November 3rd meeting, we are grateful to have a guest speaker from Taylor’s Place visiting us. Taylor’s Place was established in honor of Texas A&M student, Taylor Gillespie. After the tragic death of their son the Gillespie’s wanted to ensure that all families and students had a place to stay regardless of the ability to pay. We will hear the amazing journey and legacy of this kind Aggie and the impact he continues to make through the loving and generous heart of his family. Please feel free to share with other Aggie family, friends and supporters.
We will be collecting donations for goody bags as well. Any type of individually wrapped food items are wonderful additions to the goody bags. Some suggested items are bottled water, peanut butter or cheese crackers, Cheez-Its, granola bars, Goldfish, small containers of Pringles, pudding cups (that don’t require refrigeration), chips, Cracker Jacks, Rice Krispies treats, popcorn, animal crackers, fruit snacks, and anything else that is individually wrapped and travels well. Thank you so much for your help and your generosity!
We welcome all Aggie families and supporters. Dinner is included for all paid members and is available for $5 a person for non-members. Let us know if you need a vegetarian meal.
We ask that you RSVP by October 29th, to allow our hospitality team enough time to plan and prep food for all attending. The doors at Aggie Park will open at 6:00 pm for mingling and shopping. The meeting starts promptly at 6:30 pm. We will also provide a Zoom Link as we get closer.
DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY OF COVID 19, MEETINGS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

Feb. 5-7, 2021 Registration for Aggie Mom Camp 2021 is now OPEN! Whoop! Pass it Back, Aggie Moms!
Our Aggies have Fish Camp, T-Camp or Howdy Camp to aid in the transition to college life and transition them to the wonderful traditions at Texas A&M University; but, did you know that Aggie Moms have CAMP as well?! Aggie Mom Camp, created in 1994, helps new Aggie Moms learn the traditions of Texas A&M that are passed along from “seasoned” Aggie Moms. Since its inception, Aggie Mom Camp has become a way for all Aggie Moms, new and seasoned, to come together as a part of the Aggie Family.
This “Aggie Mom-Getaway” weekend is full of speakers, entertainment, behind the scene tours, meals and lots of mom-raderie! In addition, there will be a small boutique, AMC Marketplace, of booths with all things Aggie you could possible want to shop for. Come join us for the weekend as we “Shine Together” as Aggie Moms. This is an Aggie Mom Camp t-shirt and jeans weekend!

Please Note: The Federation is excited for Aggie Mom Camp 2021. However, please be aware that Camp will be a bit different this year due to COVID restrictions. As with everything right now, COVID is playing a major role in how Camp is shaping up and has/is creating some new opportunities. Given group size and social distancing restrictions due to COVID, it has been necessary for us to make the following adjustments to camp:
- There will be both On-Site Campers at the hotel and Virtual Campers via Zoom or some other virtual broadcasting platform. The Virtual campers will have access to all camp sessions – Friday night, Saturday morning and evening and Sunday morning.
- Number of Camp Attendees – Total of 200
- On-site at the hotel: Limited to 125 campers
- Virtual: Limited to 75
- Virtual Campers who register for on-line attendance will be sent a “Camp Box” which will contain a camp t-shirt, lanyard/pin, tote and supplies for the Saturday activity.
- No large group campus tours.
- Saturday evening dinner will be at the hotel in the ballroom. No additional tickets will be available to purchase due to group size restrictions.
- Painting with a Twist Paint Party: This activity will take the place of the traditional Saturday late afternoon tour that typically transitions us into our Saturday evening meal and speaker. Painting with a Twist will come to the hotel and guide us in painting a piece of artwork unique to Aggie Mom Camp. A RSVP is required if you plan on attending this event.
