Group Updates - July 2012

Hey everyone, we here at HPIR hope that you are having a fun summer and are staying cool! It's time for a summer update about what's been going on with HPIR in the last few months:

 Investigations: We started summer off with two investigations; one was the Whipple Company Store which I posted about previously. Since that last post, I have added some new audio clips to our website so be sure to visit our sound cloud page to listen to some very creepy EVP’s we obtained during our investigation there. We also investigated a private home in Huntington in late May in which we obtained several EVP’s. I will be posting that investigation overview and audio clips on our website very soon. We had to postpone one investigation for later this summer due to the severe storms that swept though our area on June 29, 2012. We currently are planning two other investigations in the coming weeks, a private home and a local business so check in with us later this summer to find out more about those investigations!

Tour News: We have been staying on our toes this summer giving ghost tours. We did two public tours during the full moon in the months of May and June, we gave a private tour for a group of excited and curious children in June and during July’s full moon we gave a private tour to a local group of co-workers for an employee outing. We have had some wonderful tours this season and we are excited for more public tours coming up in August, October and November.

Team Toni 5K: In June several of our members participated in or volunteered for the Team Toni 5k memorial run/walk. The 5k experience was a first for three of our members: Meghan ran the 5k, while Carrie & I walked. Kelly had planned to walk with us, unfortunately she was feeling under the weather but she and Dustin volunteered, and were waiting at the finish line cheering us all on! We had such a great time and it was all for a great cause. Since our 5k experience, some of our HPIR “walkers” have kept up our walking and we plan to participate in another 5k this fall, with a Halloween theme!

Haunted Travels: I’m planning to get started on my latest edition of my haunted travels series with my recent trip to North Carolina for summer vacation and I also plan to blog about last year’s summer vacation soon too. I also have another up and coming Haunted Travels trip planned for September!

Mothman: This September, HPIR is planning a return trip to Pt. Pleasant, WV to attend the Mothman Festival. It has been a few years since we set up a table at the festival, and we have decided that this would be a great time to make the short journey north along the Ohio River to once again be part of the festivities.

Anniversary: The beginning of August will mark the 6th year since HPIR was founded. We are looking forward to celebrating 6 years with our annual picnic tradition. Good food, good friends and ghosts, who could ask for more?!  Happy Birthday HPIR!
