Service Fraternity Offers Words of Support

"Rapport" is a term that describes a relationship that is in sync or on the same wavelength. In the game of Scrabble, it's a word that is worth 11 points, plus and extra 50 for using all seven tiles — and it's awfully tough to spell without the letters APO!

In recent months, The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming has developed a valuable rapport with students in the SUNY Geneseo chapter of Alpha Phi Omega (APO), a national, co-ed service fraternity founded on the principles of developing leadership, promoting friendship and providing service.   On Tuesday, April 17th, the brothers will hold a campus-wide Scrabble tournament, with all proceeds benefiting The Arc.  They've also helped to update our membership database, and will be promoting the Ramon Rocha 5K Run/Walk on campus.

APO's primary focus is to provide volunteer service within four areas: service to the community, service to the campus, service to the fraternity, and service to the nation as participating citizens. The Alpha Beta Xi chapter at SUNY Geneseo was established in 1986.  In the last year alone, Alpha Beta Xi brothers completed over 3,000 service hours!

Many thanks to APO for building a relationship with The Arc that spells another 61-point word: S-U-C-C-E-S-S!
