UF Cards for Pediatric Caner Patients Service 12/1/11

UF Cards for Pediatric Caner Patients Service 12/1/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter joined up with Friends for Life who represents the annual Hearts for the Holidays event. The event encourages UF students, faculty and staff to make holiday cards to pediatric cancer patients who will spend the holidays in the hospital. They attempt to send cards to one hospital in every state. Hearts for the Holidays gives university students and our members the chance to provide support for children fighting cancer. Our chapter benefited by coming together in order to make the lives of others better during the time of year where hope is in the area. The cards were delivered to the Friends for Life representatives to distribute to the hospitals.

UF White Elephant Gift Exchange Social 11/29/11

UF White Elephant Gift Exchange Social 11/29/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

At our last meeting of the fall semester members of the Florida Chapter participated in a White Elephant gift exchange. The rules are pretty simple: everyone brings a wrapped gift valued at $5-$10. We number slips of paper 1-however many people we have, and each person takes a number from a hat. Whoever gets #1 goes to the front and unwraps a gift. Number 2 may unwrap their own gift or steal the gift of number 1. We continue until everyone has a gift! A gift may be stolen only 3 times before it is frozen, and if your gift is stolen, you unwrap another! But remember there are no direct steal backs! Everyone that participates has a lot of fun and goes home with a unique present that one of their fellow members picked out for the holiday season.

The Florida Chapter had the amazing opportunity to initiate 5 new members into our chapter. The night was a rainy and chilly night but that would not stop our excitement or gratitude to the members, staff, and initiates that came out. The ceremony was a traditional set up allowing the initiates an inside into what we were founded on and what we strive towards as an organization. After the ceremony we joined in congratulating the newest members of our chapter with dinner where they sat with their sponsors, our advisors, and honored guest Dr. Robert McCleery....

The Florida Chapter decided to get in touch with our roots again by heading back to agriculture. The Agronomy Department held its 1st Annual Agronomy Fall Festival out at the Agronomy Teaching Farm. Members came out to support one of our own and the mastermind behind the festival, Blaire Colvin. Students came out on a beautiful November afternoon for food, fun, and games. The festival gave students at the university an opportunity to take a look into the agronomy program and meet with the faculty, staff, and students that make agronomy great!...

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The third annual UF AZ Pancake Breakfast held at Applebee's 8-10 a.m. before a 1 p.m., home football game against Furman. We pre-sold tickets for $5, and then it's was $7 at the door. The breakfast includes 2 pancakes, 2 sausage links, scrambled eggs, butter, syrup, and coffee, orange juice, or water to drink! Members take shifts busing tables, serving, cooking, and cleaning. Our fundraiser chair Gernide Zamor planned this with the help of our treasurer Libby Weber putting a $200 deposit on the restaurant and supplies. We worked hard to get the word out about the breakfast giving members tickets to sell and sending an email out over the faculty/alumni listserv and creating a facebook event to get it out to our friends!...

UF Woodser Social 11/18/11

UF Woodser Social 11/18/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Every semester the Florida Chapter takes a road trip to a local campsite for our Woodser. Just to switch things up a little we reserved a campground at Kate's Fish Camp where we had a bonfire to cook hotdogs and make smores! Members gathered around the fire made by the owner of the camp. Even though the weather was not nearly as cold as it is further north members enjoyed watching the flames dance on the logs allowing us to wind down from a long week as we get ready to head into the last few weeks of the semester. Members took turns spelling things out with burning ends of sticks. Woodser is one of the most anticipated events each semester and members cannot wait to gather around a fire and socialize.

Members and pledges came out to meet up with each other and catch up on what has been going on with each since our last event. The fundraiser gave the pledges an opportunity to offset some of the pledging fees associated with AZ. Of course, what better way to do this than while eating ice cream! Members and pledges chow down on frozen yogurt and ice cream of all kinds while enjoying the company of members.

Our intramural indoor soccer team for the Fall semester is coming to a close. Tonight was the last game of our season. Though we may not have a perfect season record members enjoyed coming out on Wednesday for our games. Although the other team did not have enough players to play the game we decided to add a player to there team and have a friendly scrimmage. The scrimmage was a great way to end the season with both teams just going out there and having a blast playing a sport we all came to love over the semester...
