On November 17th, the Florida Chapter had the pleasure of welcoming 18 new brothers to our Fraternity! After a grueling 7 week process, the 18 pledges completed all of their requirements and were initiated. 

The evening started off with the initiation ceremony, followed by a buffet style dinner and Dr. Charles Guy's presentation on plants and human health, and concluded with the pledge class Chronicler's video presentation and awards. In attendance were the faculty sponsors, the newly initiated pledges, and fraternity brothers.

Three awards were given out: Best Paddle, Most Outstanding Pledge, and Most Outstanding PC officers. Congratulations to Stephen, Brittney, and Maya respectively for your achievements, and a big welcome to our new Brothers! We can't wait for next semester!

AZP members participated in an event run by Buckeyes against Hunger, an OSU student group that raises awareness about homelessness and also raises money for the MidOhio Food Bank. The event, called Cardboard City, gave our members insight into what it would be like to be homeless by requiring them to make a shelter out of a box and sleep outside in it.  The night also consisted of activities to learn the facts about homelessness and also hear from a representative of a local shelter.   This was a great experience for our members and allowed them to learn about ways they could volunteer in the Columbus community.  Our AZP members personally raised $250 for the MidOhio Food Bank and would like to contribute more by doing more activities in the future.

NC Operation Christmas Child

Every December, the NC Chapter participates in a service project called Operation Christmas Child, which is sponsored by the Samaritan’s Purse.  Everyone that participates donates a shoe box filled with goodies that is sent to needy children overseas. Things in the box may include toys, school supplies, hygiene items, or accessories.   For some of these children, this box may be the only gift they receive on Christmas.  Some of us choose to include a note to the child, a picture, and our address, in hopes that the child will be able to write back. 

This year, our Chapter donated a total of 21 shoeboxes for boys and girls of ages 5-14, and those boxes were dropped off at the First Reformed Church of Cary.  Operation Christmas Child is a very humbling and thoughtful experience that we enjoy doing every year.  Hopefully we make differences in the lives of the children around the world!
