The Secret Life of Ghosts, New Milford CT Ghosts that is!

The Secret Life of Ghosts, New Milford CT Ghosts that is!

I know what I am doing on Friday, October 15th, do you? I am going to be at St. Peter's Masonic Lodge for the Paranormal Lecture on the Secret Life of Ghosts. For just FIVE BUCKS you can be sure to have a great time with professional paranormal investigators and a fun group of people. I know I will be there!

St Peters Masonic Temple in New Milford CT

I attended a ghost hunt a few years ago here in CT with some friends and I have to tell you, it was such a great time. We even saw some very weird things that certainly couldn't be explained away by logic. Collect a few friends and come on down, no reservations needed, and learn all about The Secret Life of Ghosts!

Friday October 15, 2010
7:30 pm
St. Peter's 21 Masonic Lodge
11 Aspetuck Ave, New Milford, CT 06776

Bring your $5, bring your friends, even your ghostly ones! Proceeds will go towards the repair of St. Peter's Masonic Lodge, a worth cause. St. Peter's is a wonderful old building with a great history in the town of New Milford. And besides, I have never been inside of a Masonic Temple, that alone is worth the five bucks!

See you (and a few ghostly apparitions) there!!!

sounds interesting!  New Orleans gives tours of the cemetaries and there is quite alot of haunted history with the older sections of the City who wouldnt think New Orleans would not be colorful or interesting!

Andrea, did you take the shot with wide angle lenses? Good photo, and with the appropriate font makes a good set.

Are ghost also required to pay $5?

Hi Andrea -- We have had a similar ghosthunter gathering here in Shelton for years. I didn't see anything on it yet.  I know one of the speakers has passed away, but his wife carried on.  I get 'spooked' by those things. You're brave. Have fun!

Well it's an unusual evening and I'm sure will get the adrenaline flowing if you do 'see' anything.  Get an interview for your next post will ya!

Andrea: What fun!! I think that it is such a good idea--I would love to do that here in Southampton--I KNOW there are ghosts here---you can almost see them in the old houses here in the village. Since 1640, Southamptonites have been living in this small community; at this time of year people come from all over the state to visit the earliest burial grounds--colonial cemeteries especially, to try to bring up the early spirits and try to understand their way of life. We still have the original "stocks" on the muesums grounds--where people were put as a punishment for stealing or commiting other crimes against the community.

Hey Andrea:  My sister Kathy (my business partner) and her twin Kevin are members of SpiritPI (Kevin's the founder and president).  They have so many events coming up in the next three weeks it's crazy.  They'll be presenting information about ghosts and ghost hunting and taking people on a paranormal investigation.  Have fun!  Carrie

Endre Barath, Jr. I think the ghosts are playing with everyone. This was back a while! Ah well.... maybe there is something I don't know going on?
