Aggie Muster at Aggie Park
Please join us at Aggie Park for Muster on Thursday April 21st as we remember and celebrate the lives of Aggies who have passed away in the past year.
"If there is an Aggie in one-hundred miles of you, you are expected to get together, eat a little, and live over the days you spent at the A&M College of Texas."
Aggie Muster is a time-honored tradition at Texas A&M University which celebrates the camaraderie of the school while remembering the lives of Aggies who have died, specifically those in the past year. Muster officially began on April 21, 1922 as a day for remembrance of fellow Aggies. Muster ceremonies today take place in approximately 320 locations globally. The largest muster ceremony occurs in Reed Arena, on the Texas A&M campus.
The “Roll Call for the Absent” commemorates Aggies, alumni and current students, who died that year. Aggies light candles, and friends and families of Aggies who died that year answer “here” when the name of their loved one is “called”. Campus muster also serves as a 50th year class reunion for the corresponding graduating class. Some non-campus muster ceremonies do not include the pageantry of the campus ceremony, and might consist simply of a barbecue.
Doors will open at 6:00pm and Muster will begin at 7:00pm. After the Ceremony please stay and enjoy complimentary refreshments and fellowship. As always there is no cost to attend but donations are welcome. We hope to see you there.
