The Boulder Daily Camera made the following statement when the Colorado Masonic Club joined the Acacia National Fraternity on January 27, 1911:

The Aleph-Gimel chapter of the Acacia Masonic Fraternity was formally installed last evening at the Masonic Temple when thirty-two active alumni and faculty members of the University of Colorado were initiated.  The event has long been anticipated and is the consummation of the most united efforts of the members of the University Masonic Club for nearly four years to obtain their charter.

Today, Acacia is not associated with the Masonic Order, it is an ordinary “Greek Fraternity,” but its values and dedication to human service proudly find their roots in Freemasonry.

In 1913 the “Aleph Gimel” designation of the chapter was dropped in favor of being simply the Colorado Chapter of Acacia.
