We are still missing tents from before the May Hike. A cash reward is being offered (by the Communication Chair) for the return of all tents that were missing before the May Hike.

If you think you may have a tent, PLEASE take a moment to see if a tent inadvertently came back to you. To return a tent, please see the email newsletter for details.

Looking for Donation: A Camper or Fifth Wheel

WYLD/Haunted Hall is looking for a camper or a fifth-wheel as a portable sound/equipment room for Haunted Hall. This is a really good donation/tax write-off opportunity: as we plan on using the vehicle, you can write off a higher value than if you were normally donating it.

For more information, please see the email newsletter for details.
