Haunted Trail returns to boost DSCC athletics and Civitan projects

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Two local ladies show their hesitation while purchasing tickets to a past Haunted Trail. The third-annual fundraiser for the DSCC athletic program and the Civitan Club will transform the Richard E. Donner Arboretum and Nature Trail into a perilous path this fall.
Plenty of ghosts, ghouls and goblins will be on hand to cause panic for patrons attending the third-annual Haunted Trail on the campus of Dyersburg State Community College this October. The trail will offer a terrifying trek for residents brave enough to follow the nature trail located behind the E.H. Lannom Jr. gym. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children, with the trail open Oct. 26, 27, 30 and 31, from 7-10 p.m., nightly.
Residents who wish to experience frightful sights this Halloween will not be disappointed. The Richard E. Donner Arboretum and Nature Trail will be transformed into the third-annual Haunted Trail to benefit two local organizations just in time for All Hallow's Eve.

The trail, located behind the E. H. Lannom Jr. gymnasium on the Dyersburg State Community College campus, offers a terrifying trek for local residents and a chance to boost the coffers of the DSCC athletic program and Civitan Club projects.

The trail features new scenes this year, all put together as part of Halloween fun.

"The DSCC team does a great job and we know this year's trail will be another big success," said Civitan Area 9 Director Russ Maher. "This is win/win for DSCC, the Civitan Club and the community."

The Haunted Trail will be open Friday and Saturday, Oct. 26 and 27 and Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 30 and 31, from 7 to 10 p.m., nightly.

The cost of admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children age 12 and under.
