By Joni Averill

Proceeds from the Haunted Trails VI Monster Mash will benefit the Maine Sea Coast Mission’s Emergency Fuel Assistance Program, reports Wendy Harrington.

The Halloween event will be held 6-9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23, at the mission’s Down East campus in Cherryfield. The rain date is Saturday, Oct. 24.

A donation of $5 each or $15 for families is requested to enjoy food, children’s games inside, and a haunted trail for older children and adults.

“We bring the woods alive with monsters, zombies and the like,” Harrington wrote. “This year’s theme is classic movie monsters.”

Attendees “are guided through the trails after hearing a tale by the fire,” and then invited inside “to warm up with food, warm drinks and conversation,” she added.
