This year’s School District 13 Pre-Scare Orientation Party is scheduled to take place on October 16th at 5:00 PM. Anyone who’s interested in volunteering with us this year should plan to attend this event. If you can’t make it, give John or Jennifer a call at 308-289-1294 to set up other arrangements for training. The Pre-Scare is not-to-be-missed if you can fit it into your schedule though. This is your opportunity to see the full scope of the haunted village in Brule before the patrons arrive and meet the other people from nearby communities that you’ll be working with.


The Pre-Scare will last about two to two and a half hours. We’ll do some tours, see the costume/make-up area, fill out some paperwork (bring you schedule with you so that we can have your costume ready for the first night you work with us), watch some thought-provoking videos, and mingle over marshmallows. Adult, family, and teen volunteers are invited to attend.
