Here is a reflection on the Florida Chapter's recent service trip to Key West from current Pledge Lorelei P. (pictured on right with another current pledge Alex S.):
"The final day of our service trip called for some much needed relaxation and bonding. Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park boasts about having the best beaches in Key West, so the group decided there was no where else we wanted to spend our last day. The historic state park has a large defining feature unique to it: Fort Zachary Taylor. The fort was constructed in 1845 and remained under control of the federal government in the war in 1861. It is now a National Historic Landmark with the largest arrangement of Civil-War era seacoast cannons in America. After exploring this awesome landmark, the beach was calling our names. The rest of the day was spent socializing with the brothers and relaxing before we had to leave paradise. As a pledge, this day spent with everyone was a fantastic ending to a great service trip with awesome people. Not only did we help marine life and clean beaches in the surrounding area, but we got to know our brothers and enjoy our last day in the sun as great friends."
