Valentine's Day Cards

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

In order to get ready for Valentine's Day, the brothers of AZ Cook chapter decided to make Valentine's cards for the pediatric ward of St. Peter's Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ.  These themed cards varied in colors, designs and heart-warming messages.  The Brothers felt that by making these cards, they would be able to put a smile on a child's face.  The brothers really were able to showcase their creativity while designing the cards with stickers, stamps, markers and cut-outs.  Through card-making, the brothers were able to make children smile on Valentine’s Day.  This chapter has a lot of heart and definitely extended their kindness to children who know that the brothers of Alpha Zeta really care.

Members worked on landscaping the outdoor areas of the school, repainting walls and picnic benches, and laying new grass outside. It was a great night of bonding with members and new friends in ASABE, while coming together to help out a great local cause!
