Last night, OTS put on a Trivia Night for the AUCVM Community. This was a great night that included catch all trivia ranging from the arts to sports to entertainment. We even threw in a couple bonus questions about chameleons and crocodiles! There was a great turnout, and everyone had a lot of fun. The winner of our event (The Gina Davis All Stars) received a $100 cash prize! A huge thanks to our fundraising chair Megan Hardy for doing all of the planning for the wonderful night!
This year our annual White Carnation celebration featured a silent auction with proceeds of $405.00 going to “Prayers for Porter.” We kicked off the night with dinner at the OTS House catered by Taziki’s and were shuttled by extra fancy limousines to John Emerald Distillery for the auction and festivities. Our auction items included: Mary Kay make-up; a gift card from Behind the Glass; a pet care package including dog bowls, a food container, and a bag of Hill’s dog food; a “Snuggle up” basket with hot cocoa, a blanket, book, and movie; T-shirts and a car magnet from Toomer’s Drug Store; a gift card from Niffer’s; wine, glasses, and a decanter; a Bath & Body Works lotion basket; 2 massages to Aromatherapy & Massage center; scuba lessons at Adventure Sports; and an AVESS donation.
Zeta Chapter has come up with a few cool shirt designs and one Koozie that we are selling as a fundraiser. Below is the link to the order form along with the designs if anyone would like to order anything. We will be taking orders through next Sunday, the 14th, so that we can get them finished before 4th years leave for their preceptorships. They should be finished by February 19th or 22nd.
We have also set up a pay-pal so we can take online orders and ship them to our alumni, so if you or anyone you know would like some cool merchandise just fill out the form!

It’s with a heavy heart that I inform our alumni of a tragedy affecting one of our senior members. Katie Hogan, a fourth-year member of Zeta Chapter and graduating senior, lost her three pets, Dharma, Reuben, and Wednesday, along with most of her possessions, in a house fire today. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, and consider making a donation to the go-fund-me below, set up by the President of the Class of 2016 to help her replace some of what was lost.
Greetings Zeta Alum!
I hope this holiday season finds you well!
I would like to make you aware of some events coming up next year in case any of you would like to attend!
January 23rd will be our annual White Carnation formal. This year we will be having a Charity Ball! The charity we will be supporting has yet to be determined and we are still working on most of the details. We will have baskets that you can buy tickets for at the event and we will be drawing for winners at the end of the night. As of now we are planning to have dinner at the OTS house and then go to Red Clay Brewery. We will be sending more information your way soon and would love to have some alumni attend!
Annual Conference will be March 31st through April 2nd. As always we will be hosting events at the OTS house Friday and Saturday so come see us if you are in town!
Grand Council will be October 21st through the 23rd hosted by Theta Chapter at the University of Illinois. Grand Council is trying to increase alumni involvement and would like to have more alumni attending the annual meeting. Theta chapter is planning to offer a few hours of Continuing Education that weekend so please consider joining us!
As always, let us know if you have any questions or need anything from Zeta Chapter!
In honor of Fall and Halloween for 4 o’clock club OTS members got dirty and carved up some pumpkins. The pumpkins were then used as decorations for our Halloween party.
In addition we held a costume contest and got to see our pets dressed up as everything from the Flash to Indiana Jones.
