NC Ice-Cream Fundraiser

NC Ice-Cream Fundraiser

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

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.

NC Valentine Exchange

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

The North Carolina Chapter celebrated Valentine’s Day during a busy Candidate Education Week. On Thursday, February 14th, 22 brothers made valentines or brought bags of candy. The social committee prepared paper valentine bags for every brother and candidate. As brothers arrived, they filled each bag with delicious candy as well as compliments or  kind notes for everyone. This activity is a great way for brothers to show their love and appreciation for each other.
