Voorhees Haunted Hall Oct. 27

Do you dare come out at night? Have the courage to walk towards that sound you can barely hear over your pounding heart? Are you brave enough to dare the 10th anniversary of the Voorhees Haunted Hall?

"Haunted Hall started to have fun and raise money in 1991, and we're still having fun today," says senior Laurel Morse of Danielson, Conn., who is chairing the event's planning committee for a second year.

The Voorheesians, past and present, plan on transforming the basement for those undaunted souls who will come on Saturday, Oct. 27, between 8 p.m. and midnight.

"Have your nightmares finally stopped? We can fix that," promises David Laswell, a former student who has returned every year since the Haunted Hall began.

"If this doesn't scare you, you aren't human," claims sophomore Jessica Wagar of Petoskey, who dared the Haunted Hall last year and has returned to help scare others this year.

Admission will be $3, or $2 for anyone wearing a costume. No one under 12 is admitted, due to the nature of the Haunted Hall. Parental accompaniment is preferred for those under 16. Tickets will be available at the door.
