CALS Ambassador NC Fun Run

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

The NC Chapter sponsored a 5k run around NC State’s campus. Three brothers volunteered to help with the event, run or walk on Saturday, April 21. We contributed $250 to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) Ambassadors, who host the event. After the race, participants enjoyed games, music, snacks and NCSU ice cream. The Fun Run was a great opportunity to get involved in campus events and support other organizations within the college. We hope to participate in the event next year.

NC End-of-Year Pot Luck and Candlelight

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

Starting at 6:00 on April 25th before our last meeting of the semester, we all joined outside Weaver Shop for a potluck.  Each brother brought a covered dish to share with everyone.  We had everything from cheesy mashed potatoes, homemade macaroni, and Bojangles’ chicken.  Many brothers contributed tasty desserts as well, such as mode and sky blue AZ cupcakes. There were 60 brothers, 3 alumni, and 2 advisors in attendance.  It was a great time to relax before the beginning of final exams and a great opportunity to fellowship with those graduating in May.

NC Cemetery Flag Setting

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

The NC Chapter of Alpha Zeta has had an ongoing working relationship with Oakwood Cemetery in downtown Raleigh. Every semester we help them with general maintenance as well as other events such as the October Lantern Walk and Memorial Day Observance. This year six brothers donated their time on Saturday, May 5th, to help set out American Flags in front of gravestones. We also picked up trash and removed dead trees. The gentlemen at the cemetery are always very excited to see us and have our help!

On Saturday April 21st, 4 brothers walked their dogs around Downtown Raleigh during the K9-3K dog walk. Our team raised $135 for the Wake County SPCA animal shelter. Donations support an animal shelter that was able to help over 16,200 animals last year. Last semester, many brothers volunteered in the shelter’s food pantry and enjoy working with the shelter. Each person raised at least $25 to participate in a great cause while socializing dogs. A couple team members even agreed to walk other people’s dogs. Brothers as well as the dogs enjoyed the event.

Ag in the Classroom at NC

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

On Tuesday April 17th, 22 brothers participated in Sigma Alpha’s 10th Annual Fundraiser Swing-a-Thon. The Swing-a-Thon raises money for the Agriculture in the Classroom programs. Each person pays $10 to swing on a porch swing for fifteen minutes. Many organizations on campus participate in this fundraiser and if an organization raises over $100 they get recognition on the T-shirt they give all of the participants.

NC Relay for Life

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

On Friday and Saturday April 13th and 14th, ­­27 brothers attended NCSU’s Relay for Life in Lee Field. NC Alpha Zeta was selling baked goods and soda, we raised about $600 to donate to the American Cancer Society.  Everyone had the chance to walk around the track as long as they wanted to support everyone participating. There were people selling pizza, chicken wings, French fries, fried oreos, hot chocolate and several other great things. Several of the brothers decided to stay longer than their shift, some even all night. This was a great time for service,fundraising and fellowship for the Brotherhood.

NC Campus tour

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

On Saturday March 31st, 10 brothers met in the afternoon to give a group of 40 high school students a tour of NC States campus. We started off at one of the Dormitories to give them a sneak peak to what a typical room looks like. Then we headed to central campus to give them the low down of the buildings and what exists there. After that we went to the Court of the Carolinas where we witnessed a Quidditch tournament going on. From there we went to the Bell Tower and passed Holiday Hall to Reynolds Coliseum. We finally got ice cream at our creamery on campus and went to the bookstore for the kids to buy things if they wanted. The group had a great time and learned a lot. The point of the trip was to show them that it was possible to attend college and there are a lot of opportunities to get them to college also.

Throughout Agriculture Awareness Week, the Brotherhood offered many events to involve students and faculty in the celebration of agriculture. We decided this year to set up on Sunday to make sure everything was good to go on Monday. The animals were settled in and the tables were set up so that the clubs throughout the College of Ag and Life Sciences could set up when they arrived on Monday morning. That afternoon we held Ag Olympics. A few faculty members volunteered to compete in the competitions we had including a piece of pie eating contest...
