Acacia Fraternity is currently working on their annual 12 Days of Service project. The human service project was created a few years ago with intensions of taking the fraternity into the community.
Each year, the fraternity comes up with 12 human service projects to do around the community. These projects range anywhere from dressing up as Santa at the Domestic Crisis Center in Waynoka to reading Christmas stories at the Elementary schools.
The fraternity tries to stick with tradition but also likes to change things up a bit. Austin Curtis, Acacia Secretary, is in charge of the task this year, and he said things are coming along well.
"Well, we've already completed a few things, and we're currently working on getting the rest of them done. The trick is getting everyone together at the same time," Curtis said.
So far the fraternity has completed a Food Drive and putting up Christmas lights on the town square. The next few projects in mind are bell ringing for the Salvation Army and making Christmas candy for city officials.
Curtis said that it has been a rough project to complete; however, it's been fun.
"We (the fraternity) feel that we owe it to the community since they give so much to not only the fraternity, but the school as well."
