Come have a fun night at the Second Annual Halloween Monster Ball. If you were there last year you know what a good time everyone had. Food, dancing, prizes and games. Lots of cool decorations with great places for your photo ops.
Because of Covid-19 we will be observing social distancing. Please wear a mask and get creative with your costume making the mask be a part of it. Prizes will be awarded for costumes in four categories. The hotel will offer their paranormal tours and you can purchase the tickets directly from the Elms for that. The tickets for the dance will go on sale Friday, September 25th. Get them quick before they sell out.
The Elms has graciously set aside a block of rooms for us too, so if you want to stay over what a great time to do so.

Please share with everyone you know that might like some good scary fun.
