You won't want to miss this year's Spirit Stroll. Costumed spirit guides Elizabeth Beers, Carol Healy, Debbie Rogers, Joan Crawford, and Louise Collins all have thrilling and chilling new tales to tell as they lead their guests through the "haunted" houses of the College Temple historic district. Dates for the Strolls are the last two Fridays in October (the 17th and 24th) and the fourth Saturday the 18th), at 7 and 9 pm.
The charming Queen Anne cottage at 41 College Street will be the setting for Dinner With the Dead, at 7 pm on Saturday, October 25th. Homeowners Pamela and Richard Prange have done extensive restoration in this lovely old home, which features hand painted murals as well as stunning Victorian furniture and accessories. Added to this feast for the eyes will be one for the palate, with Chef George Rostovsky of Ten East Washington providing a mouth-watering dinner featuring his chicken penne pasta in vodka sauce. Dinner guests will be greeted and entertained by a whole cast of Civil War era characters, including nurse Fanny Beers (Elizabeth Beers), two female soldiers from the Nancy Harts Auxiliary, CSA (Trish Thompson and Nancy Matthews), General Joe Wheeler (Michael Boulas), Pvt. William Thomas Overby (Tom Redwine), and the Widow Wyatt, whose husband, Capt. Richard Wyatt, was killed in the Battle of Brown's Mill. Several "surprise" spirits may also waft in...
