Their service projects varied from working with monkeys in a Monkey Sanctuary to ...

A chalk board was set up with the title "Agriculture is..." and allowed students to fill in what they believed agriculture meant to them. A white board was near it that asked "How can agriculture ...

From 10:00am to 2:00pm, they helped prepare afternoon meals, cleaned monkey enclosures, and did yard work around the area. Afterwards, pledges were rewarded with the privilege of getting to ...

A group of pledges headed out to our adopted road in Gainesville to clean up the trash on the road. They spent two hours of the afternoon on a beautiful day beautifying the community.

Florida Chapter Ice Breakers and Speed Dating

Originally Posted By Angely S. Jimenez

  Before every pledge meeting, I like to plan a fun, but quick ice breaker. One ice breaker we did was the post-it note game. Each pledge received a post-it note and had to write the name of a famous celebrity, or fictional character and stick it to someone else's forehead. They then had to walk around the room and ask yes or no questions to everyone else to figure out who they had. It was big fun mess, and it ended with one person left not being able to guess that they were Tom Cruise. ...
