UF Ropes Course 3-20-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Our AZ Chancellor, Kelin Maciejewski, headed up a bonding activity that took place at UF's Lake Wauburg Ropes Course. Planning included reserving the course months in advance and having the 14 members attended sign paperwork ahead of time. It started with "get to know you warm-up activities." Then there was a low alpine course where everyone had to work as a team to get everyone across a two foot high log-course with various obstacles and team problem solving activities. Next everyone had to get over a 12 foot high wall with no ropes and just people trying to push/pull people over the wall. Last, people had the chance to climb a 45 foot high alpine tower with various obstacles including nets, hanging logs, wobbly platforms, ladders, and rocks. Everyone had a blast. It was a ton of fun and it made a lot of people feel better connected as a group.

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Spring 2011 pledge class members cleaned up a bike trail. Corinne Oliphant is the spring '11 pledge class service chair. The six in attendance picked up all the trash that was on the ground or in the bushes along the trail. This service event benefited the community and the people that used this bike trail. The chapter benefited by gaining the knowledge that keeping a community clean and livable takes a lot of time and effort.

Special Friends Day

On March 6th, 14 brothers and 3 pledges helped out at a table for Special Friends Day. The activity at the table was making dream catchers and the kids that came were allowed to decorate them however they wanted. All of the kids were really very sweet and had some amazing paintings that were on their dream catchers. Feeling inspired, some of the brothers also decided to paint a bit and here are some of the pictures that they made.

On March 6th,  5 brothers visited the Shelter of Jesus of Nazaret in Mayaguez.. The shelter's purpose is to take care for children who have been abused by their parents or guardians. Prior to this activity we had made ​​a storage facility with the intent to collect essential items and money for these to be delivered on this day. Once we raised what we needed and established a date with the shelter  we delivered the articles and share with the children, playing and talking with them.

Orphan Acres (Horse Rescue Facility) - 2-27-11

Originally posted by Natalie L. Masin

Every other Sunday, the Elliott Chapter at Washington State University carpools out to Orphan Acres, a horse rescue facility in Viola, Idaho.  While there, we participated in regular feeding, grooming, health care, and blanket checking for the horses.  We also got a chance to groom and walk three blind horses.  This activity benefits the 85 rescued horses at this facility, while helping the owner, Brent, keep up with the work he would otherwise be doing himself.  This is a non-profit institution solely in existence to benefit the neglected, abused, and otherwise forgotten horses throughout the Pacific Northwest...

Workshop Valentine Cards

Workshop Valentine Cards

Originally posted by Jacqueline Armstrong

On February 8th, the "Recycling Project" of Terrace, Mayaguez conducted a workshop to create Valentine's Day cards based on reused materials. It was intended for people of all ages, including kids, youth and adults. The intention was to dare us all to reduce, reuse and recycle in a creative way. The mother of two of our own members of the chapter gave us an orientation of recycling and taught us different ways to use materials in a fun way. Materials were given to us such as paper, newspaper, glitter and buttons. Afterwards, we enjoyed a nice and early Valentine's Day cake.

Valentine's Rose Sale Fundraiser

Valentine's Rose Sale Fundraiser

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Our annual rose sale is our biggest fundraiser! Our fundraiser chair, Gernide Zamor, did an excellent job planning everything with the help of 28 other members! An order form is e-mailed to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences faculty listserv as well as the Florida chapter's AZ listserv. We order over 700 roses in red, white, and pink colors to fulfill our pre-sales and to sell individually on campus on Valentine's Day. This is a THREE DAY event since it takes time to prep the roses (de-thorn, clip the ends, and separate by color), store in a walk-in cooler, bundle the roses according to pre-sale orders, deliver the orders on campus on Valentine's day, and table on campus selling any remaining roses. This benefits the college by giving an alternative to expensive florists while supporting its own honors fraternity! We greatly look forward to this event every spring!
