The fundraiser at Red Mango was an event planned and organized by the new Spring 2011 pledge class. Alex Gentilella is the spring '11 pledge class fundraising chair. We were given 10% of the money made from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m., which totaled $20. This money is put towards pledge class dues and fees. The event was a big meet and greet (17 in attendance) between members of the pledge clas and member of Alpha Zeta. We all enjoyed a lot of frozen yogurt!

Valentine's Rose Sale Fundraiser

Valentine's Rose Sale Fundraiser

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Our annual rose sale is our biggest fundraiser! Our fundraiser chair, Gernide Zamor, did an excellent job planning everything with the help of 28 other members! An order form is e-mailed to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences faculty listserv as well as the Florida chapter's AZ listserv. We order over 700 roses in red, white, and pink colors to fulfill our pre-sales and to sell individually on campus on Valentine's Day. This is a THREE DAY event since it takes time to prep the roses (de-thorn, clip the ends, and separate by color), store in a walk-in cooler, bundle the roses according to pre-sale orders, deliver the orders on campus on Valentine's day, and table on campus selling any remaining roses. This benefits the college by giving an alternative to expensive florists while supporting its own honors fraternity! We greatly look forward to this event every spring!

Romance or "Bro"mance? Cornell Chapter Celebrates Valentine's Day

Romance or "Bro"mance? Cornell Chapter Celebrates Valentine's Day

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

What better for the girls of AZ to do on Valentine's Day than to show our brothers how much we love them! Last year it was a steak and potato dinner. This year it was a casino night at "Casino AgRoyale". The ladies of the Cornell Chapter planned a surprise evening of snacks and poker fun at our house, with the grand prize being a Nerf gun. It is always fun to take a step back from the daily activities of homework and studying and have fun with each other. Through personalized Valentine's poems, we were able to tell each one how much they mean to us... no matter how cheesy it might have seemed! The girls had a blast cooking, baking, and valentine making while the boys had fun and were able to bond while playing poker.

Morrill Chapter Visits Cornell Chapter

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

This past weekend, 7 members of the Morrill Chapter at Penn State came to visit the Cornell Chapter. Through a fun night of fellowship, we got to know some of the members from the closest AZ Chapter to us. As the only two chapters of AZ that have a house and also consider themselves as "social" organizations within the Greek community on our campuses, we try to visit one another at least one time a semester, but missed out last fall. It's great for our chapters to discuss recruitment and new member education, among other things because our chapters are fairly similar. Members of the Cornell Chapter are going to visit the Morrill Chapter in a few weeks.

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.

Southern Farm Show

Originally posted by Lauren K. Mabry

On Friday Feb. 4th, at 1pm seven Alpha Zeta brothers met at the fairgrounds to go to the Southern Farm Show.  Admission to the Southern Farm show is free.  The Southern Farm show is a trade show showcasing different types of agricultural equipment and companies.  There were many different types of tractors for us to see.  They had a tobacco harvester, hay bailers, fertilize spreaders, and bushhogs.  They also had different types of cattle equipment that was demonstrated.  They also had cattle dog demonstrations and demonstrated how to properly vaccinate cattle.  Different companies that could one day employ us were also there so it was also a great time to network.  After walking through the trade show, we went to dinner and then came back to the mule pull held at the horse complex.  We all had a lot of fun and it was a great opportunity for us to see some of the latest technology in agriculture.

Since we had such a great time bowling the first time we decided to have a round 2 with all the new brothers.  We had 30 brothers attend with 3 alumni in attendance as well.  We all needed time to unwind after a successful candidate education week.  It was also a great way for us to get to know the new brothers.  We all had a great time.

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!
