CHECK THIS OUT
Looking for some Halloween fun? Check out the Eerie Street Manor Haunted House in Depew! This homemade haunted house will be an exciting and frightening experience to add to your list of Halloween activities. The haunted house is the creation of Dakota Ward, a senior at Depew High School. With the help of several volunteers on the “scare crew,” Dakota and his friends, including Christian Hehr, Josh Rogacki, Justin Leach and Tiffany Bassett, will create the perfect Halloween atmosphere.
This event is free, however, they will be collecting cash donations and canned goods to benefit the Friends of Camp Turner and the Western New York Food Bank. They will be selling coffee, hot chocolate, Mayer Brothers cider (hot and cold), Mayer Brothers doughnuts for $1, and pizza (while supplies last) for $2.
There also will be an Eerie Street Manor T-shirt sale; all proceeds will go directly to the James P. Haley Memorial Scholarship fund, which is a special fund for the counselor-in-training (CIT) program at Camp Turner. T-shirts will sell for $15-$20. In addition, they will be selling raffle tickets for a BMX bicycle and wristbands to help fund the Bryce Buchholz family’s drive for a skate/bike park in Lancaster.
The Eerie Street Manor Haunted House is located on Eerie Street in the Village of Depew (off Broadway, near Firemen’s Park and Terrace Boulevard). It will be open from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Sunday (youth organization night), Tuesday (teen night) and Wednesday (Halloween).
– Hannah Gullo, senior, Depew High School
