DCAM has been authorized to begin promoting the Aggie Century Tree Project. Andy Duffie, the founder of the Aggie Century Tree Project, started a profit-sharing program where Aggie Moms Clubs can refer others to the website. If they order an Aggie Century Tree, our club will receive some of the profits as a fundraiser. Mr. Duffie will ship business cards to us along with an explanation of how the profit sharing works but, in the meantime, we can begin promoting it on our website and FB. Our club members are welcome to share it at will. The only specific guidance is when ordering on the Aggie Century Tree Project website order page, a person would simply type in “Denton County Aggie Moms Club” when asked for a referring organization. The website is: https://www.aggiecenturytreeproject.com/
Background on the Aggie Century Tree Project: The project is a way for Aggies across the southern United States to grow a little piece of Aggieland in their own front yard, to be enjoyed by Former Students and their families for generations to come.
Century Tree seedlings are grown from acorns harvested from the Century Tree in the Academic Plaza, located in the heart of the A&M campus. These live oak seedlings are available for purchase year-round and range in height from 6 to 18 inches tall, depending on the time of year.
Proceeds from this year’s Aggie Century Tree Project will fund a $25,000 Endowed Sul Ross Scholarship for the Corps of Cadets at the Texas A&M Foundation.
