Florida Chapter's Last Pledge Meeting

Pledges finally finished their stressful 7 week process and were successful in fulfilling all of their requirements. It coincidentally was also Founder's Day, so we had a little celebration with cookies, chips, and subs. Each pledge had to complete 5 hours of service, social, and fundraising each.

Our members, along with our just newly initiated brothers and sisters, started their Saturday morning by heading out to this road section armed with orange safety vests, garbage bags, and gloves. Walking along the road, we picked up any litter that had been left behind and filled many garbage bags full of trash. ...

All the rambutans were donated by Dr. Custodio who is a retired animal science professor and always of great help to our Chapter. We had three pledges attend and we could see that they are hard workers dedicated to learning something new everyday.

Some of the pledges painted their paddles, while one pledge, Stephen Myers, used a ...

Each pledge received a post-it note and had to write the name of a famous celebrity, or fictional character and stick it to someone else's forehead. They then had to walk around the room and ask yes or no questions to everyone else to figure out who they had. It was big fun mess, and it ended with one person left not being able to guess that they were Tom Cruise. ...
