Halloween Fun!

Two great programs to get you in the Halloween spirit!

Haunted Michigan – The Spirit Hunter and the Skeptic

Wednesday, October 12th at 7:00pm in the Meeting Room

Ghosts, spirits, paranormal events — are they real or do they have another explanation? Investigate this further in a dual-speaker presentation about hauntings and investigating the paranormal.

The Spirit Hunter:

After some serious snooping, author Sandy Arno Lyons was able to interview patrons, employees and owners of various Michigan hotels, restaurants and bars to get first-hand accounts of unexplained phenomenon. Sandy will speak about her book, Michigan's Most Haunted: A Ghostly Guide to the Great Lakes State, which features more than 25 true tales from eight properties along with history, pictures and contact information.

The Skeptic:

Many phenomena once believed to be supernatural or paranormal have been explained through scientific investigation. Lighting, once believed to be bolts of energy cast down by angry gods, is now understood as electricity. Today, the science of electronics allows us to see and speak with people on the other side of the world; something that would have been considered magical just 100 years ago. Robert Elmouchi, founder of Paranormal Investigators Group, will talk about why we should conduct scientific investigation of paranormal phenomena and his quest for new truths that may profoundly change our understanding of nature.
