October’s Speaker: Paranormal Occurrences in the Parish House

What better way to get into the spirit of Halloween than to attend a presentation on Paranormal Occurrences at the Parish House? On October 24th, Paul Bear will be speaking on paranormal occurrences that the Original Middletown Paranormal Society has found in our own museum.

The program will be held at 7pm in the sanctuary of the Parish House. This is on the second floor, so if you require assistance up the flight of stairs, we will have people to help you.

There is a $5 cover fee to attend this program.

About the group:
We are a diverse group of members who have been doing investigations for many years. We DO NOT charge for our services, but donations to offset our costs are never turned down. We use scientific equipment to gather data which we then analyze in our lab to determine if the data can be logically explained or requires further analysis to determine if the event is indeed paranormal.
We do not do “GHOST TOURS”  because spirits do not operate on a schedule and definitely not “on cue”. We can give tours of reported haunted locations for the Hummelstown Historical Society while speaking on the history of that location but won’t pretend you will see any activity.

We have exclusive access as a paranormal society for the property of the Hummelstown Historical
Society to include the cemetery as a training ground. We also are the exclusive group to do paranormal Presentations on site.

The founder of our group is the 6th great grandson of the founder of Hummelstown, Frederick Hummel. Our group is comprised strictly of volunteers whose sole interest is in helping people resolve what are unexplained events in their home, business, or other locations.
