There has been some water passed under the proverbial bridge since we last visited, but not a whole lot has changed around our parts the past few weeks. Spring has pretty well busted out about as green as it could, considering the lack of precipitation received the past few months. We were fairly fortunate to get some rainfall around most parts of the County last week, with most gauges registering anywhere from a half inch on up to some of the folks getting up to 1.5". Although we’re still in serious need of moisture, we certainly appreciated what happened to fall upon our dry pastures and fields.
The San Saba A&M Club will be holding Aggie Muster this Thursday evening, 21 April, at the open air pavilion by the Social Center in the RV Park going into the Golf Course. Various Muster activities, including a steak supper and the traditional Muster Ceremony, will commence at 6:00. All former students and current students, their families and friends of Texas A&M University are invited to attend.
The Texas Aggie Muster tradition, which spans more than a century, will be observed in more than 300 locations this year, around the world.
These Muster traditions have been held in many unique places ranging from battleships and foxholes during World War II to the ball rooms, steak houses, and public parks of today.
Over the years, Aggie Muster has grown to be one of A&M’s most revered traditions. However, Muster is more than just a ceremony; it is also an annual way for Aggies to re-new the loyalty and unity which constitute the foundation of their friendship for each other as well as their love and
devotion for their school. If you plan on attending, you may RSVP with name and number for the meal to Dick Miller (372-4400), Martha Leigh Whitten (372-5275) or Dwight Harkey (372-5656). The Mayor & yrs. truly hope to see you on San Jacinto Day——Gig’em!!!!!!!!
