A Word from the Director...

Welcome to September!! 
The Haunted House is in full swing, volunteers are working hard to get repairs done and new rooms added. I've been through one of the new rooms and love it!
I actually had to go through twice it was that good. No, I can't give any hints to what it might be. You will have to come visit in October and experience it for yourself. :)

We still have sponsorship opportunities open. If you are interested in showcasing your business give me a call or see below and fill out the sponsorship form. 

There are also a couple of openings for organizations to work inside the haunted house creating scares for our guests. We do make a donation to the organizations at the end of the month.  Again, if you are interested, please give me a call at the chamber office or on my cell. Office: 217-935-3364, Cell: 309-684-8804.

Have a great September!!
