Spooky stories to be shared at Renfrew Institute

October 21, 2004

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Spooky stories about "things that go bump in the night" will be on tap at Renfrew Institute's annual Halloween storytelling session on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the Fahnestock Barn at Renfrew Park.

The stories will be suitable for all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult. The program is free and open to the public. Those attending should bring flashlights and dress for the unheated barn setting.

Local story teller Joanne Hay of Fairfield, Pa., returns to Renfrew for the event. Hay has worked as an elementary teacher and helped plan and present programs for adults and children while working for the Carroll County (Md.) Public Library. As an instructor at the McDaniel College in Westminster, Md., she produced two storytelling festivals.

Hay has presented a series of weekly Storytime Programs for Prestige Cablevision Channel 3 in Maryland. She also presents several programs for school students including "Story Soup and Salad," an elementary program; "Kids Can Tell," a program designed for upper elementary and middle school students, and "The Moral of the Story," a middle school program designed to help students develop positive character traits.

Limited parking for those needing assistance is available behind the Visitor's Center barn. For information, call the institute at 717-762-0373.
