some community fun for Halloween

NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. (Oct. 16, 2003) - Ghosts and goblins are invading Manchester College. On Tuesday, Oct. 28 and Wednesday, Oct. 29, the college's12th annual Haunted Forest opens to anyone willing to take a little fright.

The scare runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m., at $2 per person. Organized by the Manchester College Office of Volunteer Services and North Manchester Parks and Recreation, the maze of ghouls and demons is bound to make a spooky impression.

In Haunted Forest tradition, Manchester College students, faculty and staff will dress in creepy garb to act out scary scenes for tours of victims on the grounds of Tall Oaks. Visitors should come to the Schwalm Hall parking lot to begin the tour.

"We are making some really neat costumes," said senior Alicia B. South of Auburn, Ind. "The kids should really like it. It's a great Halloween activity."

Ghosts, goblins, witches, wolves and other dark creatures of the night will lurk along the path. Despite the murky content, Haunted Forest is appropriate for any age and all are welcome.
