Haunted house sees record attendance

Ottumwa Courier

---- — OTTUMWA — The Ottumwa Police Department had a record attendance at the Nightmare on Third Street Haunted House this year.

The haunted house was open two weekends in October in the basement of City Hall in Ottumwa. A total of 3,061 people went through the haunted house, raising $18,366.

Proceeds from the haunted house project go directly to the DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) and GREAT (Gang Resistance Education and Training) programs conducted by the Ottumwa Police Department in the local schools.

The Ottumwa Police Department would like to thank the many volunteers who donated their time and efforts to the haunted house. A special thank you goes out to three volunteers who worked countless hours on the haunted house, Deb Randolph, Nancy Morrow and Brian Bennett.
