Thanks to ‘Haunted Trail’ supporters, volunteers
We would just like to take a moment and not only thank our entire group of volunteers, better known as "The Skull Crew," who have once again toughed it out in the cold and wind both Friday and Saturday evenings, but also all you folks who were brave enough to enter the woods of Woodlot Park. Because you keep coming back, we keep coming back ... stronger and better every year.
