AG Day at Penn State

AG Day at Penn State

Originally posted by Shawn W. Beam

On April 20th 2011, the Penn State college of Agricultural Sciences hosted Ag day on campus. This year's theme was Ag literacy. Our chapter along with other Ag clubs and Fraternities set up booths that related to this theme. Our booth was a comparison between Organic and Conventional farming. It displayed facts and myths about both farming practices and had edible samples of each. We then asked our visitors if they could "taste the difference”. The catch was we hid the answer of what each sample was. We received a variety of comments about our booth (and food samples) ranging from, "I didn't know organic farming used pesticides” to "I can taste the MSG in this apple”. All and all it was a successful day and a great way for Alpha Zeta to help educate those who don't know as much as they should about food supply...

North Carolina Coldstone Fundraiser

On April 19th, several of our brothers scooped at the Coldstone Creamery in Cary, NC.  While they helped serve delicious ice cream for two hours, the rest of the brotherhood and their friends enjoyed the ice cream creations. A couple of us had the "All lovin', no oven".  It was amazing, but sweet. All of us enjoyed socializing and hanging out as a brotherhood in the good weather that day.  We raised $120 to support the brothers that attended NALC at the beginning of the month.

On April 16th, four Brothers attended the SPCA of Wake County's Dog Walk.  They only had 1 dog and her name is Sissy.  There were a lot of different rescue organizations, vets, and other vendors set up under tents giving away free goodies and information in Moore Square.  We started the 3K in Moore Square and walked around downtown Raleigh and ended up back at Moore Square.  There were a lot of people there and the weather was overcast and breezy but not hot. All the money raised went to the Wake County SPCA.  The theme was "No Kill Now" and $242,429.19 was raised.  Alpha Zeta raised $485.00.  There were also 8 other folks on our team who were not apart of Alpha Zeta, but helped out.

North Carolina Chapter Candlelight

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

After our regularly scheduled business meeting we held a candlelight ceremony in honor of our May graduates.  We all sat in a circle passing a candle around sharing our favorite memories of AZ, what Alpha Zeta has meant to us, and wishing those graduating the best of luck.  We ended with the graduating seniors telling their favorite memories and giving us advice as we finish our college careers.  It is always an emotional and meaningful ceremony.

North Carolina Chapter End of the year Potluck

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

Starting at 6:00 on April 27th before our last meeting of the semester, we all joined in Weaver Shop for a potluck.  Each brother brought a covered dish to share with everyone.  We had everything from cheesy mashed potatoes, homemade macaroni,  and baked ham to Bojangles chicken. There were some great desserts too. There were 45 brothers in attendance, several alumni, and 1 of our advisor's were there.  It was a great time to relax before the beginning of final exams and a great opportunity for fellowship with those graduating in May.

Cornell Chapter Helps Repair Raised Beds

Cornell Chapter Helps Repair Raised Beds

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

On April 30th, 7 members of the Cornell Chapter went to Woodsedge Apartments, a retirement apartment community near campus, to help get their raised bed gardens ready for planting. Two years ago, the community raised money and built around 15 raised beds for the residents to plant. Each resident gets their own bed to keep for the summer. Beds are 24” high instead of the usual 12” so they do not have to bend over as far. We joined many residents and community members and spent the morning doing repairs to their beds. We even found out one of the residents is an AZ Alumni from Michigan State!
