The “Rats” work in the concession stand at the Rec during the six-week summer program, providing food to the Rec facility’s members. These kids learn how to use a cash register, work with the Health Department, handle the public, pay themselves a small hourly wage, and basically run a small business under the supervision of an adult. A very worthwhile endeavor!! To volunteer or for more information, please call Evelyn Seipp at

This year is our thirteenth year of adults and children volunteering their time to act, create scenes, assist in applying make-up or handing out costumes, help at the snack table and any other tasks that make this haunted house the success that it is! Frankenstein’s Fortress is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night in October.
