Howdy, Ags!

It's finally here, the 65 Year Reunion of the Class of '53! We will meet on Friday, Oct. 12th, and have a dinner and program at the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center, and then on Saturday, Oct.13, the Class will watch the Texas A&M vs South Carolina game, and eat a BBQ dinner at the MSC. A cash bar will be available at both events. 

There will be lots of time before and after each event to meet and greet with old friends and Classmates. Don't miss it, it will be a terrific event.
