Tumwater Halloween House

I’m Plotting How to Integrate Jusby the Mad (Clown) Hatter into the Tumwater Halloween House 2008.  {Current scheme involves LASERS, Flares, Wireless Sound System}

REPOST from myspace

Most of you probably know by now that I (Mike of Eastside Big Tom’s) put on a little fundraiser each year in my yard for the Thurston County Food Bank.

It’s kind of Halloween themed.

This is the tenth year I’ve decorated and invited the general public into my little nightmare of a brain brought to life in my yard.

There’s a lot of construction going on in my neighborhood this year and I could use a little help getting the word out that we’re open this year.

Folks seem to think the road is closed or something. I’m not sure why that is.

Anyways, you can come through the cemetery if you think those pesky road closed signs are for real. No one has enforced them since the project started so it’s hard to imagine they’ll start now.

Park in the cemetery. Everyone does it this time of the year. The Masons are the coolest neighbors in the world. OK, it’s a toss up between them and all the dead folks.

Bring cans of food for the Food Bank. Bring lots, it’s been a rough year for the food bank and they and the people they serve can use the help.

Bring donations for the Other Bank while you’re at it.

Bring $5.00 or five cans of food and enter in a raffle to win one of the select props that I’ll be giving away this year. I’ve given away quite a few displays over the years.

The address is 520 NORTH ST SE   across from cemetery and the Masonic Temple.

Short run time this year with Halloween falling on a Friday this year.

Thursday the 30,  Friday the 31st and Saturday, November 1st.

6 p.m. – 10 p.m.

The front yard will be mild and mostly alright for youngsters.

The back yard will cause what I so lovingly refer to as “pee-tastrophes” and may induce nightmares for those under the age of 10. I’ve decided that it’s not been hard core enough in the past so this year you’re all fair game.

You’ve been warned.

Now, back to business.

Since I had no idea for sure until the last week or so that I’d actually be able to open it to the public I’ve not gotten around to being the media whore that I normally am.

I’m asking for something that I don’t normally ask for.

Any chance all 562 of you can repost this for me so that we can actually get folks to come down the road and bring donations.

Now each and every one of you is going to think that the other one is going to do it for me and think you can slack off and not honor my request. Don’t fall into this trap.

Repost it pretty please. Repost it often. Repost it in community blogs that normally hate folks like me.

Any vegetarian/vegan boards that we can crash would be fantastic. I’m down with that.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support and your help.
