At 6:00am on March 18th, officers and brothers cooked pancakes, sausages and eggs for our annual alumni breakfast. Many faculty and staff are alumni of Alpha Zeta and were invited to the breakfast at 7:15am. Brothers socialized with a handful of alumni while starting off the day with a delicious meal. After breakfast, brothers headed back to set up our booth and wait on the arrival of other clubs.
At 9:00am, club representatives signed in and set up in the tent. Our club booth included crops in various stages of growth, our picture boards, scrapbook, t-shirts and kiss-the-pig charity fundraising jars. Brothers sat at the table to talk with students interested in joining Alpha Zeta or buying t-shirts. Other brothers were stationed with the animals to answer questions from students, make sure no one touched the animals, provide fresh water and make sure the pens were clean.
AAW is kicked off with two faculty members competing in Ag Olympics. Lynn Worley-Davis and Lori Snyder participated in competitions including a pedal tractor race, an egg-on-a-spoon race and a pie-eating contest.
