2-05 Poe Springs Tree Planting Service

2-05 Poe Springs Tree Planting Service

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Florida chapter of Alpha Zeta helped plant young trees at one of our many local springs, Poe Springs. This project benefited those that participated by being out in nature and helping the environment by planting trees. The chapter participated because this was yet another perfect way to promote agriculture. Planning included knowing what time to meet up, organizing a carpool, and providing directions to the springs.

1-29 Road Clean-Up Service

1-29 Road Clean-Up Service

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Florida chapter of Alpha Zeta adopted a road several years ago and in order to keep this road we have to do a certain number of road clean-ups within a year's time. Of course, we don't mind and enjoy making sure trash gets put where it belongs! We usually do our road clean-ups on Saturday mornings, so our service chair, Kaitlyn Summerfield, plans for those attending to meet in a parking lot on campus and carpool over. Planning involves pickin up the supplies ahead of time and bringing it to our AZ road. This is always a great way to get outside and socialize while cleaning our environment!

1-21 Gators Dockside Back to School Social

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

For our fall back to school social, our social chair, Dalal Hares, planned a dinner at Gators Dockside. It went so well we had another one to welcome the start of spring semester! Planning involed getting a rough estimate of the number of members that would attend in order to give the restaurant a notice about a large party coming for dinner. At the restaurant, everyone pays for their own food and drink but has a lot of fun catching up with friends discussing what we did over holiday break!

UF AZ White Elephant Social

UF AZ White Elephant Social

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This is the second year we have turned our last fall semester meeting into 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 his own gift or steal the gift of number 1. We continue until everyone has a gift! A gift may be stolen only 3 times, and if your gift is stolen, you unwrap another! The 22 members that participated had a lot of fun and went home with a unique present.

Florida Fall '10 pledge Hygiene Supply Drive Service 11-29-10

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Members of the 2010 Fall Pledge Class decided to contribute items to a campus-wide collection of shampoo, deodorant, body wash, and other personal bath products that were to be given to a shelter in the Gainesville community that serves abused and homeless women. In completing this service event, members of the pledge class were able to help those women who are hurt and in need, while at the same time getting to know one another and other members of other organizations across campus. This counted as a service event for the pledges and could be one of their two required service points for the semester.

Florida Fall '10 pledge Nature Walk Social 11-27-10

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This nature walk was one of the socials planned by the pledge social committee that would count toward the pledge's two required socials. Members of the Fall 2010 Pledge Class met up and drove out to Paine's Praire where they went for a nature walk and enjoyed the outdoors and wildlife (birds, buffalo, etc.). This activity served as a nice way for the pledges to enjoy the afternoon while bonding with one another and getting to know their future fraternity brothers.
