Spook House to benefit local food pantries

October 21, 2021

The McCulloch County 4-H and extension service is putting the final touches on a spook house for the Brady community that will be their community service project in an effort to fill the shelves of our local food pantries.

Set for Saturday night from 6-8 p.m. at the old jail facility, the event is designed for young and old alike and the only admission is at least one canned good that will be donated to local food pantries.

"This is something we think can be an annual event and having it in the old jail is pretty spooky in and of itself," said Cameron Anderson, McCulloch's Extension Agent. "We're still in need of any props that folks think can help and we'd love to have more volunteers to help out as well.

"We're going to give the younger kids a glow stick to help identify them and limit the scare factor, but we really hope folks will come out and support the event. If we have a lot of folks lined up, we may stay open later, but we'll just see how things go."

The event is scheduled for two nights only, this Saturday and next Saturday, from 6-8 p.m.
