Howdy Fort Worth/Tarrant County Aggie Moms!
We are Mothers of Texas A&M Students both past and present who have formed a sisterhood of support for our Aggie Students. We meet monthly during the school year and host events for charitable and educational purposes.
Our Fort Worth/Tarrant County Aggie Moms Club was the second club ever established when the Aggie Mothers’ Groups began in 1922. Don’t we look good for 97?! We have fun together while supporting our Aggie Students and TAMU Organizations, so come join us!

TIME TO JOIN OR RENEW MEMBERSHIP FOR 2019-20
It’s only $25 to join our club and the money supports our operations fund which ultimately supports our local scholarship efforts. As a member you can attend our monthly meetings as a supportive network with other Aggie Moms and gain valuable insight for providing comfort and welfare to our local Aggie Students that will offer a better college experience during their time at A&M. You can also receive special Aggie Mom discount offers. So please join us if you have not already!
DON’T HAVE AN AGGIE MOMS CLUB NEARBY? JOIN US!
You do NOT have to be from Tarrant County to join. You don’t even have to be from Texas! We have members from nearby counties whose work or schedule makes it easier to attend our meetings, though we encourage you to first check out your nearest Aggie Moms Club. We also have a few out-of-state moms who participate long distance.

Need a great gift idea?
How about a baby Century Tree and it benefits our club!
Andy Duffie, ’78, is growing and selling Century Tree seedlings as an A&M scholarship fundraiser. He has already funded a President’s Endowed Scholarship (2012), an Aggie Ring Scholarship (2015), and is now working on a Sul Ross Scholarship for the Corps of Cadets.
He sells the seedlings from his web site (aggiecenturyproject.com) for $100 each. The little trees are 16- to 24-inches tall, depending upon the time of year (shorter in winter months, taller by late summer). They are one year old, in excellent condition, and are planted in one-gallon containers. Customers have the option of picking up a seedling from his home in College Station or he will package and ship a seedling by UPS to any location across the southern U.S. (where live oaks grow) for an extra $20.
For every referred customer sent by our club, he sends us $20. For us to get credit, during the online purchase a pop-up box will appear asking the customer “How did you learn of the Aggie Century Tree Project?” The customer simply enters FORT WORTH/TARRANT COUNTY AGGIE MOMS CLUB in that field – which is captured as part of the transaction.
