Special Friends' Day

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

In mid-March, Rutgers University hosted its 21st annual Special Friends Day, a day when Rutgers students have the opportunity to bond and hang out with special needs children during fun filled activities hosted by various student groups on campus. A DJ plays music the whole day, the pool is open for all to enjoy (with lifeguards present), and there are arts and crafts activities galore. This year's theme was "Ancient Civilizations" and so AZ brothers set up an arts and crafts table at which they helped children decorate paper pyramids to celebrate the rich Mayan Culture...

his past weekend the Florida chapter participated in Relay for Life located at the University of Florida. Over the past year, our chapter has been consistently fundraising for this event. We have done many fundraisers, big and small, from our annual Rose sale during Valentine's day to concessions at varsity sporting events. It was very rewarding to see how all our hard efforts paid off!...

NC Preschool Farm Animal Talk

NC Preschool Farm Animal Talk

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

On Friday March 22nd, 13 brothers went to the Country Day Montessori Preschool to give them a lesson about chickens and pigs. We brought four chicks and two pigs. The kids were thrilled to pet the animals and the brothers enjoyed spending time with the kids. It is a great opportunity to introduce kids to agriculture when some of them probably never touched a farm animal. We have developed a great partnership with the preschool and hope to go back for Earth Day to plant flowers.

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.

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...

New Member Project!

New Member Project!

New Member Project: A tradition that has continued for many years in the Cook Chapter was quite a success this semester. The new members and their bigs, in addition to any other brothers who chose to participate, came out to the beloved Rutgers Gardens and helped put mulch down around the daffodil beds that will be blooming soon. Also, considering the damage of Hurricane Sandy, Helyar Woods, a staple of the Gardens, were significantly damaged. Many trees had fallen down and the timber could now be used to make mulch.

Orange Gleaning at President Welty's House

A few weeks ago, members from the Alpha Zeta Cal Epsilon Chapter spent an overcast Saturday morning picking oranges at California State University, Fresno's current president's house.

With hundreds of oranges to pick, AZ members partnered up with members from Alpha Gamma Rho, Plant Science students and 4-H. Together, we gleaned the orange trees and socialized over coffee and donuts.
