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.

Everyone always makes an extra effort to make it to Woodser!

On February 4th, the Cook Chapter co-sponsored Responsible Happy Hour with SEBS Governing Council. The event included discounted drinks for those over 21, free food, music, and provided a nice time to socialize and catch up with friends, the rest of the brotherhood, alumni, and prospective pledges. There was also a slide show showcasing many pictures of Cook Chapter brothers at many of our past events so that prospective pledges could see more what we were all about. There were 26 brothers present and 5 alumni, not to mention a number of prospective pledges. Our faculty adviser, George Clark, was also present.

On February 2nd after smores, the old e-board presented the newly elected e-board with their duties while the new e-board thanked their predecessors and presenting them with flowers and a plaque. The new e-board then started their first meeting ever and quickly got down to business explaining the new pledging schedule and everything else that we all wanted to accomplish for this semester. The entire brotherhood was present (40+ brothers). The new e-board consists of the following amazing brothers: our Chancellor Amanda Hannen, our Censor Lisa Izzo, our Scribe Amanda Sorenson, our Treasurer Gianna Santelli, our Chronicler Michele Ellenbacher, and our Sargent in Arms Wayne Scheck.

Smores

Smores

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On February 2, 46 brothers and 18 prospective pledges came out (or should I say went inside) for smores. Because of the cold weather and the abundance of snow, the traditional smore night got moved from outside the Cook Campus Center to inside. Everyone still had a blast even though we had to abandon our little fire pit in favor of fluff and nutella. The event allowed for prospective pledges to meet the brotherhood for the first time. They were able to ask questions and get to see more what the Cook Chapter and Alpha Zeta are all about while enjoying some snacks. Though we all wished it could have been outside, the event was still extremely fun and on the up side we all got to stay warm.

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!
