UF Scrap booking Social 3-24-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Every year for our national conference, the UF chapter of AZ combines all of our activity reports with pictures in a beautifully created scrapbook. This is such a large project each year that this year our Chronicler, Claire Page, has been hosting scrapbooking socials to help complete the book before going to the national conference at the end of March. This particular night five members met and updated the scrapbook. The UF chapter of AZ is always extremely proud we go above and beyond with this craft.

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Our fundraising chair, Gernide Zamor, planned a fundraiser at our local TCBY (frozen yogurt/ice cream). UF AZ will receive a percentage of all purchases from nine to 10p.m. Planning involved scheduling a time with TCBY and letting the members know when and where to go. During the event attendance is taken. Once TCBY calculates how much AZ earned they will contact Gernide. AZ had 27 in attendance. We always enjoy having events that involve socializing and food, especially ice cream!

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.

UF Pledge Spring '11 Keep Alachua County Beautiful's Great American Cleanup Service 3-19-11

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.

We are honored to help Empty Bowls be an encouraging resource the hungry and homeless in our community.

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.

Ice Cream Social and Responsible Happy Hour

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On March 4th, 20 brothers went to the Ice Cream Social that Helyar House was hosting at Responsible Happy Hour. They were raising money for Give Kids the World Village in Florida by selling ice cream at a $1 per scoop. It was an extremely fun event because who doesn't love ice cream and the money was going to a great cause. We also wanted to support one of our brothers who lives at Helyar House and helped to run the event.

New Member Retreat

New Member Retreat

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On February 26th, 21 pledges, the Censor and the Sergeant in Arms made their way out to the Meadows to hold the New Member Retreat. There the pledges got to hang out with their mommy and daddy while coloring and going over the history of Alpha Zeta. They were soon joined by our amazing Chancellor and Pledge Committee who brought with them a variety of different types of pizza and soda for lunch. Pledge Committee then played "Who's story is it?" with the pledges, which involved the pledges anonymously writing down an embarrassing or funny story that they were ok with sharing on a piece of paper. Then the Chair of Pledge Committee read out loud the story and everyone had to guess whose story it was. Both the Censor and the Sergeant in Arms also played. Once the game was over Scholarship Committee arrived and met with the pledges individually to help them write their debate papers, which is one of the requirements for pledging the Cook Chapter of Alpha Zeta.
