Welcome to our new class of AOE Actives!

Hello!

I know it’s been awhile since the site has been updated, but you can be assured that the sisters of AOE have been very busy during the past couple of months!

First of all, let’s give a warm welcome to our new class of Actives! The new sisters were initiated yesterday in a fun and exciting ceremony, featuring their amazing candidate project: a set of bright and pretty looking AOE letters! The girls did a fantastic job on the project, creating everlasting sisterly bonds between each other, as well as learning how to use power tools for the first time. We look forward to many years of sisterhood and learning with these great girls!

To recap on the last couple of months, here’s what AOE has been up to:

In October, the AOE sisters volunteered their time to participate in KULA Club’s Trick or Eat initiative: the goal was to go around the local neighbourhoods collecting canned goods for the Kelowna Food Bank. The sisters put on their best Halloween Costumes, including Disney Princesses and superheros, and went out into the community to help out!

In December many of the AOE sisters partnered with the Engineering Fraternity, SPD to help with WiSE’s White Ribbon Campaign. The White Ribbon Campaign honours the 14 women wrongly murdered on December 6, 1989 at L’Ecole Polytechnique. AOE volunteered in helping repaint the Engineering E white, attended the Remembrance Ceremony and wrote lovely words of inspiration and remembrance on the E.

Fast forward to the month of January, and we’re back in a new term and a new year! The AOE sisters had fun at bowling and ice skating events around town. However, it was a busy month with the newly initiated actives finishing up their candidacy.

Looking ahead to the rest of the term, we have some exciting events and volunteering initiatives to look forward to, including helping out at WiSE’s Introduce a Girl to Engineering Outreach Day on February 10, and the Relay 4 Life in March. Stay tuned for updates as the dates draw nearer!

Until then, stay beautiful :)
