PR Chapter Community Service

PR Chapter Community Service

On Saturday, March 7th Alpha Zeta visited Finca La Perla in Mayaguez from 8:30 to 3:30.  Five members participated in the activity. First of all, we discussed with the owner, Luis Curvero, some of the present challenges the agriculture in Puerto Rico is facing and some basic information about the industry of the coffee in Puerto Rico. We shared a light breakfast for those who had not had any and proceeded to a tour of the property. Luis Curvero has many small crops in his property, including ginger, “pana” (Artocarpus altilis), “chironja” (orangelo) and cacao. The main crop of the farm is coffee, though there was not any to pick. After the tour, we helped pick cacao in many different spots. We were able to fill three sacks with cacao, and afterward opened them and put the seeds with the pulp in water. Afterward, we enjoyed a light lunch provided by the owner of the farm and then proceeded to participate in the process of grinding and packing coffee. Then, we were given a taste of the coffee produced at the farm and picked bananas, “chironjas”  and “panas” to take home with us.

PR Chapter Fraternization at the Movie Theater

Alpha Zeta visited the movie theater in Western Plaza in Mayaguez on November 24th at 9:15 pm to watch The Mockingjay. Both current members and pledges assisted to the event and enjoyed the film. We experienced the highs and lows of the movie together, some members more than others, and also heard the comments of nonfans that assisted merely to fraternize. The nonfans thought, for some reason, that the whole movie was to happen up on a three, while there was a member that kept making faces at certain new characters in the sequel, though she would not explain why. All in all, e had a pleasant time and after watching the movie, we conversed about anything and everything late into the night.

Alpha Zeta HS Student Investigation Community Service

A High School Student, Naomy Candelaria required subjects with experience in developing a garden and subjects without experience in developing a garden for her investigation of Puerto Rico Zero Waste Management. As agricultural students, Alpha Zeta members have experience in developing a  garden, and so some members volunteered to be such subjects. Naomy required us to give her our recycling material for a total of three weeks, once after a week of recycling and another time after two weeks of recycling. Afterwards, we were required to answer two different surveys via internet. On November 10th, we handed over our first bags of recycling and on November 25th we handed over our second bags of recycling. At about the same time, we answered the surveys that were sent through e-mail and finished our parts. Naomy’s investigation was completed successfully. She was even published in the newspaper El Nuevo Día.
