WILLOW PARK – Former students of Texas A&M University will assemble in Willow Park April 21st for the annual Parker County Texas Aggie Muster in honor of all Texas Aggies who have passed away within the last year, announced Muster Chair Graham Quisenberry ‘77.
The muster activities will consist of a social hour (cash bar) at 5 p.m., dinner at 6 p.m., and the muster ceremony at 7 p.m. The program will take place at the Clear Fork Station Banquet Hall, 4971 E. Interstate 20 Service Road North, Willow Park.
The speaker will be Brandon Hill ‘03, former Buck Wierus Spirit Award and Brown Foundation-Earl Rudder Memorial Outstanding Student Award recipient and currently an attorney with the Forth Worth law firm of Kelly, Hart & Hallman.
For reservations and further information contact Richard Westbrook at 817-441-5831 or email email@example.com.
The Texas Aggie Muster tradition spans over a century and will be observed in more than 350 locations around the world. The gatherings are held in many unique places ranging from battleships and foxholes during World War II to ballrooms and steakhouses today.
Over the years, Aggie Muster has grown to be one of Texas A&M’s greatest traditions. It honors the memory of A&M men and women whose death prevents them from answering roll call at this year’s Muster. The roll call is a roster compiled of all former and current students who have died over the past year.
As each name is called, a friend or family member will answer “Here!,” symbolizing that their memory lives on in the hearts of Aggies everywhere. Muster is more than just a ceremony; it is also a way for Aggies to renew, each year, the loyalty and unity which constitute the foundation of the friendship for each other and love and devotion for their school.
