PR Chapter Community Service

On Saturday, March 7th Alpha Zeta visited Finca La Perla in Mayaguez from 8:30 to 3:30.  Five members participated in the activity. First of all, we discussed with the owner, Luis Curvero, some of the present challenges the agriculture in Puerto Rico is facing and some basic information about the industry of the coffee in Puerto Rico. We shared a light breakfast for those who had not had any and proceeded to a tour of the property. Luis Curvero has many small crops in his property, including ginger, “pana” (Artocarpus altilis), “chironja” (orangelo) and cacao. The main crop of the farm is coffee, though there was not any to pick. After the tour, we helped pick cacao in many different spots. We were able to fill three sacks with cacao, and afterward opened them and put the seeds with the pulp in water. Afterward, we enjoyed a light lunch provided by the owner of the farm and then proceeded to participate in the process of grinding and packing coffee. Then, we were given a taste of the coffee produced at the farm and picked bananas, “chironjas”  and “panas” to take home with us.

California Alpha Zeta Brotherhood Retreat

California Alpha Zeta Brotherhood Retreat

California Alpha Zeta Chapters Cal Eta and Cal Delta joined the Cal Epsilon Chapter in Fresno for the first California Alpha Zeta Brotherhood retreat. Members spent the day discussing bylaws, fundraising and communication. They played numerous ice breakers including Skit in a Bag, The Key Game, and the hilarious pterodactyl. Members even got up and moving with a scavenger hunt and a game of bowling during lunch. This retreat helped create new friendships, gain insight with how Alpha Zeta works for different chapters and helped bring some ideas into our own chapter. Thank You to the Cal Eta and Cal Delta Chapters for driving out, thank you to all members that attended, and Special Thank you to Beatriz Rodriguez for planning the event.

Christmas Party and Angel Tree Donations

On November 20th, our Organization held our annual Christmas party in which we had a secret santa exchange, played Christmas games, ate wonderful snacks, and had an ugly sweater contest. This wasn't all we did during this meeting, along with this we also decorated Christmas trees for families in need in Stillwater, Oklahoma, collected cans for our local food pantry, and collected money for Angel Tree. We raised $304 that was able to be spent on one little girl and one little boy in the Stillwater area so that they could have a magical Christmas. Our shopping trip was on December 9th and we bought legos, kitchen sets, gift cards, stuffed animals, clothes, and much more. It was truly a moving night and it is so amazing seeing a group of such amazing members and pledges wanting to change the world and help those in need around them. It was such a wonderful evening.

Puerto Rico Chapter Pig Farm Visit

Puerto Rico Chapter Pig Farm Visit

On November 8th we went to a pig farm in the town of Moca to work with pigs. We injected supplemental iron, tattooed their ears, castrated and weaned the pigs. It was a great learning experience for both the candidates and the old members because some of them had never worked with pigs. After a hard day of work working with almost 90 pigs we went to eat and shared some of our stories with this year’s candidates.

Surveys were given out in order to ascertain the student body's perception on agriculture and how it affects their life. A chalk board was set up with the title "Agriculture is..." and allowed students to fill in what they believed agriculture meant to them. A white board was near it that asked "How can agriculture ...

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.
