Howdy Ags, 
Welcome to the March Edition of your New York Aggie Newsletter! There are so many amazing things ahead for the club, you're going to want to pull out your calendar and make sure you don't miss a thing. 

As many of you saw last week, we officially announced that we will be welcoming Coach Kevin Sumlin of our Fighting' Texas Aggie Football team as our speaker for Muster! Coach is really excited to join us for the evening and we thrilled to have him. More details are listed below, including our brand new venue, but if you don't want to scroll down, here is where you can find all the information AND GET YOUR TICKETS. 

We want to give a huge than you to Roger Creager for the great concert and hanging with the New York Aggies when he was in town last month. Also, thank you to our fellow SEC Clubs for organizing a great Mardi Gras event.
