Halloween Haunt at Doheny! Saturday evening 10/24

Posted on Oct 23 2015 - 7:59pm

Be at Doheny State Beach Day use area at 5PM to help set-up the haunted house for the Halloween Haunt event.  Tell the gate ranger you are there to vounteer and get the appropriate parking pass. The event is open from 630 - 830 PM followed by tear down. You may come in costume or troop t-shirt. Please bring any halloween decorations you can share for the evening.  

Though I'm told there will be food for the volunteers, I suggest coming fed or ready to purchase food from the event or nearby. This is a fabulous opportunity to earn service hours and give back to the community.
