This post is somewhat geographically specific, and for those of you in a land far, far away I apologize.
But for anyone living in or around 108 Mile House in beautiful British Columbia, we've got something fun to tell you about.
Here's your chance to take part on a Ghost Hunt. Yup. Just like you see on t.v. And it's a benefit to boot! (This photo is taken from the site's facebook page).
Dave Scott, who you can hear weeknights hosting SPACED OUT RADIO, told me a little about the benefit night.
"The Charity Ghost Hunt at the 108 Mile Heritage Site, is a tribute event to long time caretaker, Ken Long, who passed away a couple of months ago from pneumonia. Ken loved the Heritage Site. He was a former war veteran who had no family in Canada, as all of his loved ones are living in his native South Africa. The 108 Museum is extremely haunted, and we felt, in conjunction with Vancouver Supernatural's Jim Kolisnyk and members of the Canadian Paranormal Society, that the best way we can elp to get Ken's ashes back home was to hold a fun night of ghost hunting for the public.
The event is $20 per person, and 100% of all proceeds go to raising the much needed $2,500 to cover the costs of his cremation and final flight home. The ghost hunt, which starts at 7:00pm and runs until 10:00pm will have the paranormal investigators taking people around to various buildings and conducting an amateur investigation. There will be coffee, snacks, and draws for people who are interested in coming down. We would like to get 50-60 people out to the Heritage Site. Dress warm. Tickets can be picked up on location the night of the Charity Investigation."
I can tell you that I had the opportunity to do an investigation at the site this past summer. We got some interesting findings, to be sure. The classroom is particularly fun. I suggest starting to teach a lesson to get the kids going.
So, if you happen to live out that way, get your tickets early, support a great cause and have a spooktacular find. Let me know how it goes.
