On the Bright Side: SUCO Greeks set community service record

(Continued)

"I think it's nice to help the community and to be able to do things that will benefit local people," DeCabia said Monday.

The Chi Phi fraternity conducted a 9/11 candle ceremony that drew more than 300 participants from the college and the community. Corrigan said he hopes the 9/11 ceremony will become an annual event.

"9/11 was something we can all relate to," Corrigan said.

Corrigan added that "the 320 kids accomplished an amazing feat compiling more than 8,700 hours of community service.

"We want to disassociate ourselves from the unrecognized organizations," Corrigan said. "We have goals and means to achieve positive outcomes."

Corrigan said he is working on a 5K run for breast cancer in April, and the SUNY Oneonta Inter-Greek Council is seeking service opportunities to build a relationship with the local community.
