Greenhouse Cleanup

Greenhouse Cleanup

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

As anyone in agriculture knows, it is hard work. One of the actives in our chapter owns a greenhouse, and periodically throughout the semester, actives have been travelling an hour to her house to assist her family in getting the greenhouse ready for the current growing season. The greenhouse suffered some damage after a hard winter, so they can use all the help AZ can offer! Members also visited the greenhouses last fall to help clean up after the season was finished. Service to fellow brothers and sisters is service of the best kind!

11 New Members Initiated!

11 New Members Initiated!

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

A couple weeks ago, 11 new members were initiated into the Cornell Chapter, The weekend which consists of bonding activities, community service, and teaching of chapter traditions like songs, attracts alumni and is a weekend everyone looks forward to. The weekend concludes a 9 week long new member education process where new members participate in weekly events to learn Cornell, Alpha Zeta, and Chapter history and traditions. This initiation was unique for us because chapter initiation included a National Initiation (separate because we are a social fraternity also) on Saturday after where 3 Associate members were initiated in addition to new members.

UF Pledge Spring '11 Gelato Co. Fundraiser 4-11-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Pledges and members were invited to come out to the Gelato Company to support the new 2011 spring pledge class. Alex Gentilella, fundraising chair, planned the event, and thirteen were in attendance. It also was an opportunity to meet and greet with members and alumni. Ice cream is always a great opportunity for the pledge class and members to come closer, especially before initiation.

UF Pledge Spring '11 Orange and Blue Social 4-09-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Everyone celebrates the Orange and Blue football game every year so Kimberly Sweeny (pledge class social chair) thought it would be a great opportunity for the pledge class to socialize together and have a great time. The 6 in attendance got to bond in a more relaxed setting and open up a little more to each other.

UF Pledge Spring '11 Red Mango Social 4-07-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

After the Tom's shoes service event 11 people headed over to Red Mango to get a sweet treat and mingle with each other. Everyone hung out for a couple hours and had a good time. It was a good break since there is a lot of school stress right now at the end of the semester. It was great to relax! Kimberly Sweeny is the pledge class social chair.

UF Pledge Spring '11 Puppy Hill Farm Rescue at Petsmart Service 3-27-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This event was planned by Corinne Oliphant, the pledge class service chair. At Petsmart the Puppy Hill Farm Animal Rescue group brings dogs and cats that are available for adoption. The 11 in attendance brought the animals in after they walked them. Pledges and members were told to talk to the customers and try to persuade them to adopt a pet. Before finishing the service event, the dogs were walked again. It was a great time spent with the animals and advocating for their adoption!

UF Two Tails Ranch Service 4-10-11

UF Two Tails Ranch Service 4-10-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This service event was planned by our spring semester pledge class but was opened to all members as a service event requirement. Two Tails Ranch is a "training, medical, breeding and retirement facility for hundreds of elephants and exotic felines for over 20 years." They are revamping their main barn and some back pens so we helped with general maintenance and landscaping. This was truly an incredible experience for the 10 members and several pledges that were able to attend to be able to interact with elephants and will hopefully be a service project the UF chapter of AZ will carry on in the following years.

UF Potluck Social 4-05-11

UF Potluck Social 4-05-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Every semester the pledge class plans a potluck for the pledge class and all of the members. This semester's theme was Southern Comfort. Potluck is always greatly anticipated since everyone that attends has a lot of fun, gets to dress up according to theme, and share delicious food! A testament to how fun these potlucks are is that 29 members and two alumni attended, not including those in attendance from the pledge class!

The UF chapter of AZ was represented at this year's Alpha Zeta national conference by our student advisor, fundraising chair, national service project chair, scribe, chronicler, chancellor, social chair, and treasurer. Our chronicler, Claire Page, won the Centennial Scholarship and Chronicler of the Year. Charlie Doyle won Treasurer of the Year. Rikki Schwarz won Member of the Year. She was the lead director for the National Service Project hosted by the University of Florida that took place nearby in Orlando, FL. As a whole, the Florida Chapter won Service to Community and New Member Development! Even though a handful of the members could go to St. Louis, the Florida chapter is greatly supported by all our members, and we are proud of our accomplishments. The yearly national conference is a fantastic way to meet and make friendships with AZ chapters from around the country. Every year our chapter greatly looks forward to going to/hearing about the activities of the conference and meeting new and old friends.
