Christmas Posada. Last December we had our annual Posada were many members of the chapter get together to celebrate the winter holiday season and commemorate the Hispanic traditions. We prepared traditional Mexican dishes, we brought a piñata full of candies and we all participated in a gift exchange. We also had an ugliest Christmas sweater contest. The Posada has always been a great way to have our members bond with each other in order to create a stronger sense of community.
Start of the year recruiting. The new e-board went out to recruit for our chapter during the summer and at the beginning of the school year, now we are recruiting in the start of this semester. We are always looking for new members to join our chapter and keep it full of life. The freshmen are the ones we usually activley recruit for to join our chapter, so that we can keep passing down the leadership from one generation to another.
