WHEELOCK- The Wheelock Way is playing host to a frightful experience this Halloween season that raises money for the cemeteries of the town of Wheelock. The Haunted Trails fundraiser kicked off last night and is aming to scare anyone who decides to brave wooded trails until October 25th.
Volunteers from Wheelock and surronding towns have come together to pull off this terrifying experience and it's all for a great cause. Over the past few years the cemeteries in Wheelock have fallen into a state of disrepair. With head stones crumbling and knocked over the Haunted Trails is aiming to raise money to help with the repairs.
Stephen Amos the Chairman of the Wheelock Selectboard would like to see more funding become available to help restore the outlining and private cemeteries to their original state. "We will be going after grants, varying sources of grant money, and some of the money from events like the haunted trails will help to go to that process as well." Amos has high hopes for the outcome of this fundraiser.
Students from Lyndon State have volunteered to dress up as your favorite children's tales characters with a scary twist. The host of this event, Colten Tomasi, hopes that the fundraiser gets a good crowd of people throughout the weekend. "I hope everyone comes and enjoy's it. Hopefully they get some good scares."
The frights begin at 6 P.M. until 9 P.M. tonight and tomorrow night. The 10 dollars it takes to get a ticket will all go to the restoration of the cemeteries.
