Shrieks, Screams, Laughter, and Deep Appreciation

The Deep River Parks & Recreation Commission expresses its sincere appreciation to the Griffin family, which worked tirelessly to create a spectacular haunted house in the basement of the Town Hall that was enjoyed by all, free of charge, during our annual Halloween festivities. The Griffin family-Dean, Meg, and son Jared-worked hundreds of hours and used their treasure trove of frightful props to good use; more than 200 people screamed their way through the haunted basement, some with courage enough to repeat the experience!
When one family gives of its time and talents to create a unique and enjoyable evening for others without regard to profit, it makes you appreciate living in a small town. Parks & Recreation requested people bring a non-perishable food item for the Deep River food closet as price of admission. Because of the efforts of the Griffin family, several boxes of items were collected.
Again, the haunted basement, while an idea shared by many, was brought to fruition by the Griffin family and for that we are extremely grateful. There were shrieks, screams, and laughter followed by the exclamations that it was "really cool!" and "really scary!"
What a fun night it was!
