Cornell Chapter's 113th Annual Meeting

Posted By Natasha A. Bartolotta, Wednesday, October 29, 2014

October 18th, 2014 marked the 113th Alpha Zeta annual meeting at the Cornell Chapter. The meeting was located at our house and was conducted after enjoying a delicious lunch prepared by our house chef.. Many alumni and current members were present as well as representatives from our Corporation Board, High Council and CALS Charitable Trust. Our Chancellor gave a report on what activities our chapter has been doing this past year. Reports were given from the Corporation Board and from the High Council too. Also, a few of our fortunate actives were awarded with prestigious scholarships. Lastly, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) Charitable Trust, an endowment formed by alumni of CALS that provides financial support for academic enrichment with preference towards AZ members, gave their annual financial report. Two of our actives also spoke about the experiences they had used their generous grants for: spending a summer taking a Field Animal Behavior course at Shoals Marine Laboratory on Appledore Island and gaining practical veterinary experiences working with exotic animal species through an internship at a zoo in Miami, Florida. Overall, the meeting was a great time for alumni and current members to come together.

North Carolina Service Event

Posted By Jamie L. DeRose, Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Last Friday, 15 of our Brothers helped serve our community through the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Mobile Market.  The Mobile Market is a direct distribution of fresh produce and groceries in a low income neighborhood.  A refrigerated truck was brought to the center, and our Brothers helped sort and bag groceries that people could pick up for free.  This set up allows families to “shop” for foods they enjoy.

Not only did this Service Event help us assist our local community, but it also put into perspective how fortunate we are and how important it is to give back to those in need.

Puerto Rico Chapter Rambutan Sell for Fundraising

Posted By Jaileen Rivera Montes De Oca, Tuesday, October 28, 2014

The purpouse of the rambutan collection was to sell them at college to gain funds for Alpha Zeta. On Monday 20th of October, we sold rambutans at the prices of $4.00 a pack of 20 units, and $0.25 the lone unit.  Though we started out in the Piñero building, we sent a few packs to the Student Center, to try out our luck. As it happens, it was a total success. Many people tasted the fruit for their very first time, admitting that they didn’t even know the exotic fruit existed and comparing it to sea urchins or fictional fruits. However, most of them decided that they liked it pretty much.  Others that already knew the fruit expressed their gratefulness at our having sent units to the Student Center, since our initial building was much too far for them. We were able to sell of the collected rambutans between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM, raising around $500 for Alpha Zeta. We also had the participation of 14 pledges during those hours of the sell. They showed much enthusiasm, though some were a bit shy, and helped out very much.

Puerto Rico Chapter Rambutan Pickup

Posted By Ezequiel Montañez Rivera, Monday, October 27, 2014
On October 19th our chapter went to Dr. Custodio's farm and collected over 2,000 rambutans (we lost count) to sell the next day. We were collecting and packaging rambutans from 12:00pm to 5:00pm. All the rambutans were donated by Dr. Custodio who is a retired animal science professor and always of great help to our Chapter. We had three pledges attend and we could see that they are hard workers dedicated to learning something new everyday.

Florida Chapter Service Event at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens

Posted By Alexis Z. Curtin, Monday, October 27, 2014

On Sunday, October 19, brothers of the Florida Chapter spent the morning beautifying the grounds of Kanapaha Botanical Gardens.  Only 15 minutes away from campus, our local botanical garden holds the state's largest public collection of bamboo species, attracting visitors from near and far.  While our work consisted of lots and lots of weeding, we made a tremendous difference and had fun in the process!  Our work was well-timed and much appreciated by the staff of the gardens, as they needed their grounds to be in top shape for their annual Open House and Orchid Show the following week.

Florida Chapter Road Clean-Up

Posted By Alexis Z. Curtin, Monday, October 27, 2014

On Monday, October 13, brothers of the Florida Chapter participated in a road clean-up.  Through Gainesville's Adopt-A-Street program, our chapter was designated a portion of a street to clean 8 times per year.  It's always fun to see what kind of treasures we find while cleaning our road, and this time was no different!  Members of our pledge class had completed a road clean-up a couple of weeks before, and we were impressed with how clean our road stayed in between events.  Hopefully our service continues to make a difference!
