Scavenger Hunt: Chapter Bonding for Relay for Life

Scavenger Hunt: Chapter Bonding for Relay for Life

Originally posted by Jacquelyn E. Neal

At the member meeting on Tuesday, March 19th, the Florida Chapter engaged in some fun chapter bonding in preparation for Relay for Life. The chapter was divided into teams based on their shift for the event, and asked to complete six tasks. Some of the tasks included making up an Alpha Zeta Cheer, serenading a random stranger by singing "Happy Birthday", and  taking group photos at several University of Florida landmarks. The teams had a half an hour to complete the challenge and had tons of fun while getting to know each other. Some of the pledges participated as well and got to know the members. As the second year of the scavenger hunt, hopefully it will become an annual bonding tradition for the chapter!

The members of the Florida Chapter got together on Monday, March 11th for some great gelato and company at The Gelato Company in downtown Gainesville. In addition to making the best chicken salad in town, Gelato Company donated a portion of their profits from the night toward the UF Alpha Zeta Relay for Life team. Members brought friends and enjoyed dinner, gelato, and even crepes. Some alumni of the chapter even turned out for the event! It was a delicious way for the chapter to fund-raise for the Relay for Life team.

During Agriculture Awareness Week we hold a forum regarding the issues in agriculture to help educate the brotherhood, as well as the public.  We advertise this forum throughout the week through social media and word of mouth.  This year the forum was held on Wednesday at 5:30pm.

Every year, the brotherhood hosts Agriculture Awareness Week (AAW) to network with other clubs in the college and help a university with 30,000plus students learn more about agriculture.  Although the university was founded in agricultural and mechanical arts, most students are not from farming backgrounds. AAW is now considered a campus tradition and has been going on for over thirty years. Tommy Batts, chair of the AAW Committee began planning the event over six months ago. The committee worked to prepare for the arrival of animals, plants and equipment on campus...

Cornell Chapter attends Young Farmers and Ranchers Conference

Originally posted by Sara K. Orlowski

On February 22-23, four Alpha Zeta members attended the 2013 Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Conference.  The main focus of the conference was to get young farmers and ranchers active in Farm Bureau.  Young farmers and ranchers do not necessarily need to hold a position to contribute to the organization but voicing an opinion about various agricultural issues is very helpful.  Farm Bureau wants young farmers to join and be active in the field of agriculture because it allows for the concerns and issues to be heard by local representatives who can then lobby for farmers in Albany...

On February 26th, seventeen brothers and one alumnus attended our fundraiser at Coldstone Creamery in Cary, NC.  Four brothers mixed and served delicious ice cream for two hours, while the rest of the brotherhood and their friends enjoyed the ice cream creations. All of us enjoyed socializing as a brotherhood even though the weather was cold and rainy.  We only raised $30, so we hope to do another fundraiser later in the semester.

Winter Banquet

The Cal Epsilon chapter finished out the new year in style with the Winter Banquet! Members got a chance to dress up and socialize over some delicious food at the Smittcamp Alumni house at Fresno State. Professor Don Vasconcellos gave a very inspiring speech about the importance of the perserverance in the agricultural industry. New members were recognized, as well as those going to NALC. A silent auction finished off the festivities, and many members walked away with Fresno State paraphernalia and fresh-baked goodies. The evening concluded with a photo-op by the wonderful Christmas tree! We can't wait for next year!
