AZ Florida Chapter Celebrates Oktoberfest at Chapter

AZ Florida Chapter Celebrates Oktoberfest at Chapter

German food, Italy Study Abroad Presentation, and Friends

The Florida AZ Chapter makes coming to chapter meetings fun! For our mid-October general body chapter meeting, the theme was Oktoberfest! Plus, we had a couple of special visitors. Dr. Kaufman, who excitedly took on the role of chapter adviser this year, came to speak to all of us about a study abroad trip to Italy with his wife, also Dr. Kaufman. The male Dr. Kaufman was passionate about the program and will be teaching an entomology course on the trip, while the female Dr. Kaufman really knows her olives and will be sharing that knowledge on the trip as well! The presentation was certainly alluring, and a few of our brothers plan to take advantage this summer!
After the Italian presentation and business, we came back to our home-made German food (made by the amazing Sentinel, Stephanie Hriclk) and our Oktoberfest photo wall and cut-outs! In Florida, we work hard, eat well, and have fun. Oom Pa Pa!

AZ Florida Chapter Helps a Blueberry Farmer

AZ Florida Chapter Helps a Blueberry Farmer

After Hurricane Irma hit Florida, farms around north Florida sustained damage. The Frogmore Fresh Farm had 100,000 blueberry plants needed to be re-set. It was a huge job and the farmer is a friend of the University of Florida who stood to lose years of productivity. The University of Florida's Sigma Alpha Fraternity reached out to our Alpha Zeta chapter to ask for more help and our brothers enthusiastically jumped on the project. "We were especially excited to be able to help our community while also getting AZ back into agriculture," said our chapter's president, Virginia Propheter.

On September 16, Alpha Zeta brothers of the Florida chapter drove 1.5 hours to the blueberry farm. Once there, our members split into groups of 2 or 4 and walked the rows of blueberries. We checked each row and put uprooted plants back into the soil and added stakes and ties for support. This was an inspiring event because the farmer only expected a turnout of 20 people, but 200 people from all over the community as well as University of Florida organizations arrived to support their local farmer. "It was great to see the whole community come together to support a local producer," exclaimed AZ brother, Courtney Carroll.

AZ Cal Eta Recruitment Week

This week the Cal Eta chapter at Chico State University had rush events to recruit new members. Current and future brothers had a fun filled week participating in events such as a hamburger taste test, completing a list of tasks around Chico and photographing it, playing Minute to Win It games, and relaxing at the Bidwell Park barbeque. We enjoyed meeting potential new brothers and spending time with our chapter, here's to a great semester!
