It is almost that time of year again where the building that used to be a functioning school, decommissioned in 2004,  turns into “Hall’s Haunted Halls” one of the Top Rated Haunts for the past few years.  According to Hall Civic president, Randy
Randy Cropped pictureMarsh, the haunted house is 100% Volunteer operated and takes a minimum of 30 individuals willing to scare others on Friday and Saturday nights in October.

In accordance with new insurance regulations, volunteers can now be sixteen (16) instead of eighteen (18) years of age.  Volunteers under the age of eighteen (18)- must have parental approval.  There are several positions required for ensuring this event is a success.  According to President Marsh,  actors are essential (both male and female) and costumes & makeup are provided .  If you or anyone you know would be interested in volunteering, please go to our Halls Haunted Halls page to find the volunteer form and/or contact Randy Marsh at 317-430-8023.

The Hall Civic Association is able to document your participation if needed for completion of Community Service Obligations (requirements of a school or class, etc.) ; not court-ordered community service. However, this is something we may offer in the future.  Volunteers who have committed violent crimes, crimes against minors, sexual offenses, theft or robbery are not accepted.


On a brighter note, we are looking forward to spring, which is right around the corner!

We are currently making arrangements for some much needed,  landscaping to the front entrance of the building.  Randy estimates the cost to betulip about $10,000 and plans are being made to raise the funds for this project.  Anyone interested in making a tax deductible, donation toward this venture, is encouraged to visit our web site at  You can make a donation there, by simply clicking the donation button and pay by credit card or PayPal.

President, Randy Marsh, said  “This project is going to add a nice, new look, to the front entrance of the building.”
