The Florida Chapter spent a Friday night in late November in the woods about thirty minutes from campus.  Members dug out their finest flannel, camo and boots for our largest social every semester.  Members enjoyed burgers, hot dogs and s'mores around a giant bonfire that kept us warm throughout the night.  The night was full of stories, games, and even some spectacular line dancing.  Our semesterly woodser is a great way to bond with the newly inducted members and wrap up another successful semester for our chapter!

On November 19th, we at the Florida Chapter were very proud to induct twenty three new brothers and sisters into the fraternity of Alpha Zeta. Those inducted were selected for candidacy from a pool of twenty seven applicants, and each one has demonstrated a strong dedication to both our ideals, and the fraternity itself. I'm excited to see their contribution to our chapter, and I'm glad they're here to carry us into the future.

Last weekend, the Florida Chapter took part in the Edible Plant Project at Siembra Farms. The Edible Plant Project is a nonprofit mission run by volunteers that strive to promote edible landscape and local food production. The Edible Plant Project’s goal is to create alternatives to the unsustainable food system in this country. When we arrived at the farm, we were separated into 2 different groups. One group picked sweet potatoes, while the other group tended to the green house. In the green house, we picked out the weeds, cleaned seeds, and planted sugarcane. All in all, the Florida Chapter was able to devote our time in a fun and farm friendly way!

This year the Florida Chapter has asked the position of Publicity Coordinator to be as active as possible. As a response we have had many shirts created for events, such as the ones our members wore to Sea World just over a week ago (which you can see our members showing off at the penguin exhibit). The shirts pictured from this semester include our "semester" shirt (which is a shirt not for a specific event), the Sea World shirt and a shirt for our upcoming "Woodser" bonfire....
