Well, October is finally here. This year has been a very busy one for ghosts, and it all leads up to now.
As you know, I do a lot of charity work in the ghost field around here. I have already helped with a ghost tour in Wamego, KS to help out the Columbian Theater there. If you have never been there, you need to check it out. During that time, I ghost hunted the Wizard of Oz museum and another old theater, now apartments and a rentable venue. Had a lot of adventures there, which I’ll share with you later.
This year was Franklin County’s 200th birthday, and I did a series of ghost hunts in historical places around the county. The Harney Mansion in Sullivan, the Old Courthouse in Union, and the John Busch Brewery in Washington. We have one more for them, the Trip-County Truck Stop, (the Old Diamonds Restaurant) in Gray Summit. Again, all for charity. I also hosted a bus tour of the haunted places in Franklin County, and that sold out at 65+ people. It’s been an amazing year.
The new book, titled Supernatural Washington, is being edited. Hopefully, it will be out before the end of October, but I am not holding my breath. The problem is, as I investigated places, more and more places came available for us. I finally had to stop and finish the writing, and it will be a bit larger than I had intended. Maybe there will be a second book out in a year or two.
For anyone interested, here is the plans for the year as far as charity ghost experiences:
Saturday, Oct. 12th: Tri-County Truck Stop for the Pacific Friends of the Library.
On Friday, October 18th and 19th we’ll be back at the Showboat Theater in Hermann. This place is very haunted, and members of the group last year got some amazing photos. Here is the poster, you can check it out yourself:
And, for the animal lovers, we are doing our Trolley of Terror Tour in Hermann to benefit Ferals in Peril, a group who takes care of stray and feral cats. This charity is dear to me, as one of the founders of this, Deb Prusinowski, started this and passed away too young a few years later. Her husband, Ted, is still a part of it, and I think of them whenever we do this tour. Below is the poster for it:
As you can see, it’s on October 25th and 27th. Please come down and help out the animals for these kind people.
Thanks, everyone. Have a spooktacular October!!
