On the last Saturday night of October, which happened to be Halloween this year, the Historic Oakwood Cemetery in downtown Raleigh calls on the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta to help set up for their annual Lantern Walk through the two and one-half acres of the Confederate Cemetery. This year we had five brothers help on Oct 31st at 8:30am.  Luminaries are set up along a path throughout the cemetery. During this set up, we are also given a history of flags and of the cemetery. That night, throughout the cemetery, skits and re-enactments of life during the civil war are performed...

The NC Chapter of Alpha Zeta has had an ongoing working relationship with Oakwood Cemetery in downtown Raleigh.  Every year we help them with general maintenance and with their lantern walk.  This year eight members donated their time on Saturday, October 24th, to help with the Memory House.  We picked up trash, trimmed shrubbery, and helped remove a dead tree.  The gentlemen at the cemetery are always very excited to see us and have our help!

On November 7th, 7 members of the Cook Chapter went to a chapter development program hosted by Rutgers called Phired Up. This program helps greek organizations develop a strong social network on which the can lean on for future events that they want to host. This also teaches members how to encourage other brothers to be more involved, recruit more people and how to better give back to the community through service. The presenters encouraged forming strong social bonds with people outside the chapter who we can network with later on. These ideas are also applicable in a career setting and in all matters of life.

October 29th was quite a blustery, cold day at Rutgers University but that did not stop 21 members and 3 pledges of Alpha Zeta from giving back to the local New Brunswick Community.

There were over 50 different Rutgers Organizations there to promote the importance of community and service.
