BECKLEY - The Humane Society of Raleigh
County needs help from the community to put together a haunted trail next month
“Helter Shelter” will take place the evening of October
26 at the Humane Society. Organizers are asking local businesses, groups and
organizations to each set up a spooky scene along the haunted trail. They hope
to have at least ten different scenes.
Organizer Melissa Lyons said this is the first time the
shelter has hosted a haunted trail. “I've always gone on haunted trails…and I wanted
something different that will actually have a good cause behind it,” she said.
The public will pick their favorite spooky scene at the
event. Lyons hopes the event will bring awareness about the shelter and pet
Anyone interested in creating a scene for the haunted
trail can e-mail HSRCEvents@gmail.com.
