Ekyse Kalfus sent the following letter to notify everyone of the Wards Corner Spook-tacular Meeting
We will have a meeting on Tuesday evening at the Haunted House, 135 E. Little Creek Road at 6:00 pm. You will need to bring your own chair if you wish to sit. Also if you can stay and work for a while bring what tools you think you think will be helpful including electric screwdrivers..
We have one week to get this Haunted House together. We need to discuss not only the Haunted House, but the Mall Arcade and all the other arrangements for this event. If you know of any other people who wish to join in with us on this event please bring them with you.
Remember we are doing this for the children of the city, and the money raised from the Haunted House goes to support different programs in our area for special needs children.
At this time we have students from Granby High School, Norfolk Collegiate, and Norview High School working with us. I am waiting to hear back from several other schools and expect to hear back on Monday.
Our events are posted on the city website and will be appearing in the Compass on October 21st and the Link on October 23rd. We will also be on Norfolk Perspectives to mention a few.
I hope to see you all on Tuesday,

There will be a meeting Friday night at 6:30pm at the Old Dollar General Store to start planning the Haunted House. Anyone interested in working on the Haunted House is encouraged to attend.
We are looking for materials and labor. We hope to have the Haunted House opened on October 19th, 20th, 26th, 27th and October 31st. We already have some students from Granby High School and Norfolk Collegiate involved and hope to have students from Old Dominion and Norfolk State before we’re finished.
The Spook-tacular is a city-wide event held in Wards Corner and we would like to build some real community involvement. If your Civic League or School would like to be involved, contact Elyse Kalfus at 587-7975 or 613-1674 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
