On December 4th, before Formal, 10 brothers carpooled out to Woodlands Wildlife Refuge to help winterize the facility. This included cleaning out the outdoor cages as well as the many of the other holding pens inside the building and the garage. The Refuge has many animals including bear cubs, which can be seen in the outdoor pens though brothers were not allowed to get to close or talk near them in the hopes that they would not get used to people. Despite the cold it was a fun way to give back. These 10 brothers accumulated a total of 36 hours of service for the Refuge. The event was planned by our Service Committee with help from two of our fellow brothers who have volunteered at the Refuge in the past.
