UF Canned Food Drive Service 11/15/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

With the Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching the Florida Chapter decided to be thankful for what we have and pass on the gift of food who are not as fortunate. Members collected cans to donate to the St. Francis House in Gainesville. The St. Francis House is there to provide emergency food, temporary shelter, transitional housing, and related support services in a safe, secure environment for people who find themselves confronted with homelessness and hunger in the Alachua County. The cans will be given to the St. Francis House where they will distribute them to people in need around the area. The event allowed our members to give back to the community and try to change someone's luck one can at a time.

UF Potluck 11/15/11

UF Potluck 11/15/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

It's potluck time again!!! Potluck is a tradition in the Florida Chapter where the pledges put on a themed dinner for the members. Our pledges planned it and came up with a theme of Mexican. Pledges, with the help of the officers, cooked up an entire taco bar of food and desserts for the members to feast on. The potluck benefits both members and pledges by giving us an opportunity to socialize and get to know each other better. It also gives pledges the opportunity to get their paddles signed as initiation quickly approaches! Even though potluck occurs every semester it will never get old and as we say you will see members you haven't seen in a while! It constantly shows each pledge class's personality with the changing themes and the corresponding food, decorations, and outfits/costumes.

The Florida Chapter participated in a 5K walk/run to benefit the Gainesville Fisher House Foundation. The event was put on with the help of the Florida Ag Econ Club. The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform as well as the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by both the Departments of Defense and the Veterans Administration...

UF Ci Ci's Pizza Fundraiser 11/9/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter held a fundraiser at Ci Ci's Pizza from 5-9 p.m. where we received a certain percentage of the profits from the night. Members came out to enjoy the all you can eat buffet while catching up on what has been going on with each other.  Of course, this is best done while filling up your fuel tank to study! Members enjoyed pizza of all kinds while embracing in the company of other members. The fundraiser gave us the opportunity to help offset the costs of events planned by our chapter during the year.

UF Pledge Class Dinner Social 11/2/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

For the UF Chapter's Fall Pledge class social they planned a dinner at Leonardo's Pizza. A few members of the pledge class had never eaten there before, so it was a great experience for them to share. The dinner allowed members of the pledge class the opportunity to get to know one another and share stories of past professors and giving each other tips on how to survive different classes. It was nice for them to have dinner together because they have already made many new memories that they could laugh about over dinner. At the restaurant, everyone pays for their own food and drink but they had a lot of fun catching up with each other.

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter came together for another night of fun and games for our intramural soccer game. Students enjoyed our two-week break but looked forward to see who our next opponent was for the night. The game was one of the most successful games we have had yet. The team had enough members to play and give everyone a break if they needed a substitution. The best part of the night had to be our rowdy fans cheering us on during a real close game!...

The road clean-up was planned for an evening to avoid the heat of the day...
