Albany - - Hundreds of people are headed to town this weekend for a state fraternity conference that chose Albany to celebrate 101 years of community service.
Members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity are in Albany though the weekend for their Georgia District Convention.
Three hundred to four hundred people are showing up for leadership building activities and community service projects. The group kicked off with a planning meeting Thursday evening at the Hilton Garden Inn.
The service fraternity does tutoring and mentoring and is partners with the March of Dimes and the bone marrow association.
"Were really excited. Anytime we have the opportunity to host our convention and share with the brothers, its always a great feeling. Were elated. The participation has been outstanding and were looking forward to all of the events of the weekend," says Chair Benny Hand.
The group is holding several events this weekend that are open to the public, including a step show at Albany State Friday night.
On Saturday, there will be a speech competition for college students and a scholarship pageant at Dougherty High School.
