 On Saturday, September 13th, the Florida Chapter hosted a tailgate for the Florida versus Kentucky football game so brothers could hang out while sporting their orange and blue.  During the event, refreshments were provided so all the brothers had to do was show up and have a good time. The event lasted about two hours so brothers could go to their regular tailgating areas or visit with other friends before the big game.  Although the Gators lost, the brothers of AZ started the day off ...

Knowing this, members of Alpha Zeta took it upon themselves to give a hand to the personnel that so desperately need it.  The Zoo is trying to reestablish its seedbed area, but it was covered ...
