Muster is a time for Aggies to come together, remembering the good times at Texas A&M and celebrating those members of the Aggie family who have passed. This year, the Capital City A&M Club Muster will feature a unique Austin venue, food trucks and a candlelight Roll Call vigil. Our event will be primarily outdoors, so we encourage you to dress casual and comfortable, and wear shoes appropriate for walking on grass. 
 
Join us at the American Legion-Charles Johnson House, a few miles west of downtown Austin, on Monday, April 22. A historic home turned event venue, the American Legion House has a beautiful backyard facing Lake Austin. We will have food trucks available with tables and dominoes. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for food and camaraderie, and the Muster ceremony will begin at 7:00 p.m.
