Trick or Treats, Haunted Forest
scaring up a good time at MC
Children of the community are in for goodies and screams this week
on the Manchester College campus. All five residence halls are greeting
Trick-or-Treaters from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28, 2004. Children
can expect treats at any door that sports a special Trick-or-Treat logo
in Schwalm, East, Garver, Oakwood and Helman residence halls.
Meanwhile, perfectly frightful activities are occurring in the
woods north of the residence halls, where the college’s Haunted Forest
looms. Tour guides will escort the fearless through eight or nine scary
sites within the Haunted Forest between 6 and 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct.
26 and Wednesday, Oct. 27. And, keeping tradition, the MC Psychology
Society will staff its insane asylum.
The cost of admission is $2. All proceeds go to the North Manchester
Parks and Recreation Department.
North Manchester Boy Scouts also will scare up some thrills. Don’t
expect reprieve between sites … creatures stalk the Haunted Forest.
For little children (or adults) who dare not join the tours, gentle
members of MC’s Student Education Association will offer a safe haven
near Tall Oaks within the woods, with arts and crafts.
More than 50 volunteers from Manchester College participate in the
Haunted Forest, coordinated by junior Katie Brandon of Columbia City and
the college’s Office of Volunteer Services. BACCUS is supplying the
refreshments. North Manchester’s Parks and Recreation Department is
supplying hay, pumpkins and other site props, and advertising for the
Haunted Forest. Members of the Indiana Reading Corps will hand out
Halloween goodie bags as people exit the tour.
