Ag Forum

Originally posted by Jamie L. Jordan

During Agriculture Awareness Week we hold a forum regarding the issues in agriculture to help educate the brotherhood, as well as the public.  We advertise this forum throughout the week through flyers and word of mouth.  This year the forum was held on Thursday evening, and was about how to start a career in agriculture, no matter what type of background you have.  Commissioner of Agriculture, Steve Troxler, opened up the forum by giving his story of how he became involved in Agriculture and how he got to where he is today.  We then heard from 3 other individuals, including Jerome Vick who gave a tour last year at his farm for NALC!  The floor was then opened up for questions. We had around 180 students attend this year.

Stream Cleanup

Stream Cleanup

Our Service chair contacted campus maintenance to see if there was anything that we could do in order to help make our campus a little more beautiful.  On May 4, 2010, nine brothers of the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta met at 2pm to clean-up a stream that runs through campus.  We started at one end of campus armed with trash bags and rubber gloves and picked up trash along the stream all the way to the other side of campus.  The stream runs along a trail that many joggers and bikers frequent along with several of our members.  Hopefully next time they will have a cleaner walk.

On Saturday morning, April 24, we had eight Alpha Zeta brothers travel to the 2010 Regional Boy Scout Camporee in Kinston, North Carolina.  Once we arrived we helped set up the BB gun ranges and then helped train the scouts on the proper way to use a BB gun. We also helped check-in the scouts, sign off on the requirements for badges, and we helped pass out the badges.  We wore AZ t-shirts and met several people that were there with their sons that were AZ alumni.  The alumni were very glad to see us actively involved in the community and shared with us some of their favorite AZ memories.

Candlelight

Originally posted by Lauren K. Mabry

On Wednesday, April 28th, our chapter held their annual candlelight service for our graduating seniors after our regular business meeting.   This is a service that we hold at the end of each semester.  We all sit in a circle with the seniors on one side and share our favorite memories of Alpha Zeta and thank our seniors for all of their hard work and guidance.  The graduating seniors also give any advice that they may have and share their favorite memories as well.  It is always a very touching ceremony that we all enjoy.

Ice Cream Social

Originally posted by Lauren Mangnall

Cal Eta had an ice cream social and their meeting on February 25 at their campus farm.  They chose that night for the ice cream social so their future initiates could interact with the current members.  They ate ice cream and played music and people socialized.  Their initiates benefited and so did the current members.  They had held an officer meeting one week prior to decide who would bring the ice cream and toppings.  Our Chancellor volunteered to bring all the items for the social and it was a great success!

AZP Quarterly Alumni Newsletter

Originally posted by Lauren Mangnall

In an effort to keep AZP alumni up-to-date on the happenings of the chapter, the alumni committee has created a quarterly newsletter. They hope this will help increase communication between the actives and alumni and are encouraging their alumni to give them some feedback and any ideas that they have for the next newsletters.  In future newsletters, alumni may submit updates for inclusion in the newsletter on things like the annual meetings, initiation and banquet .  Some alumni have expressed that they are encouraged by the turnout of AZP’s and how active the chapter is becoming in the college!

Paddle Night

Originally posted by Lauren Mangnall

In late March, Cal Eta held their annual Paddle Night.  This year, Paddle Night was held at the farm and one student in the College of Agriculture made the paddles for all the members.  Members paid for the wood and he cut out the pattern.  All the paddles were then painted blue.  The only criterion was that they had to have the letters "A" and "Z" on them as well as the key. They had glitter and paint in all different colors for the members to use to decorate, as well as stickers and stamps.  It was a great way for the members to socialize and b creative at the same time.
