Keystone’s Haunting looks for volunteers

Leslie Silverman
After a four-year hiatus, The Haunting of Keystone is back and looking for volunteers.
A special town board  meeting  in Keystone  was called Sept. 1 to approve the use of the Keystone  Museum for the event. 
There was no objection by Keystone Area  Historical Society’s present treasurer Bonnie Zebrowski.
A request to make some interior changes to the building for the endeavor was also approved. 
Trustee Matt Fullilove  thanked event organizers Richard Songstad and his daughter Sydney, both present at the meeting, for having the “gumption to do this.”
Co-organizer  of The Haunting of Keystone, Sandi McLain, said in a separate interview that volunteers will be treated to a cast party and drawings for cash and prizes depending on their level of volunteer involvement.  
McLain encourages people to volunteer their time to help the community.
Volunteers can help with set up, cleaning, set design, security or in acting roles scaring guests.
Volunteers can be individuals or service groups. 
Three locations will house The Haunting, each with a unique theme. 
The “House of Perpetual Panic” will take place at the Keystone Museum, while the “Black Plague” will be featured at Big Thunder Gold Mine. Rushmore Cave will have a theme of “Carnival.”
The original operators of  the nine-year event will once again be creating this year’s haunt. “We have a passion for it,’ says McLain. 
The Haunting of Keystone is being sponsored by Holy Terror, Inc.
