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!

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...

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.

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!

Remember, remember, the fifth of November, to come eat your favorite food and support Alpha Zeta, of course! That was Cal Epsilon's call this November when it hosted its first Hot Dog on a Stick Fundraiser. A percentage of all proceeds earned went to the chapter to support member activities in the coming semester. Everyone had fun, and got to relive their childhood, it was a win-win!
