September Updates

Its update time again! It’s once again the busy season and our schedule is getting full very quickly of activities and events for the coming month. We have also been very busy over the previous several months too and here is a look back at what’s been going on with HPIR:

July Investigations: In the month of July we stayed busy with two investigations, one of a private home and a second investigation at the Ramsdell House with the Original West Virginia Paranormal. This investigation was won by Carrie during the Conference for the Cure back in April, and we want to say thank you to Rob and his team for an enjoyable investigation and a great time getting to know some of the WVP members. Earlier in July we headed to St. Albans, WV for a private house investigation to assist a family; however our results from that investigation were inconclusive.

Anniversary: August started out with a celebration of six years as a team, we had a fun-filled group picnic in Kenova at Virginia Point Park complete with hotdogs, cupcakes and a nerf gun battle with some of the member’s kids and of course our HPIR family. 

August Investigations: We had one investigation in the month of August at an old Drugstore and that investigation yielded a number of EVPs. Be sure to check out our SoundCloud.com account because will be posting some of those EVPs there in the near future.

Ghost Tours & Zombie Squad: In August we hosted our annual Guyandotte Cemetery Tour, however this year we added a new stop and some awesome features! In going with the Swinefest theme this year of ghosts and zombies, we transformed our team into the HPIR Zombie Squad for the weekend to wrangle some out of control zombies. We had hearse on display from the Cemetery Knights Hearse Club of Charleston thanks to our new friend Dwight, we had tarot card readings, a zombie tour and Theresa even released a limited preview edition of her book which is coming out in October! We had big weekend with all tours being booked on Saturday night. Thanks to everyone who came to take a tour, we appreciate your support!

Mothman Festival: After a two year break from the annual Mothman Festival, we made plans to return for 2012. We had an excellent time at the 11th Annual Mothman Festival this year, met some great people and we hope to keep the tradition alive by returning again next year. Be sure to check out Theresa’s blog for a detailed Mothman re-cap.

Team Toni: HPIR continues to strongly support Team Toni more than ever. Over the summer one of our HPIR family members was diagnosed with a serious illness, and Team Toni has been there for her every step of the way. We had an opportunity to volunteer for the Team Toni Inaugural Poker Run on September 22, with all proceeds going to help support our HPIR family member! Thanks to those who support Team Toni.

Haunted Travels: I hope to have a new Haunted Travels post up in the next few weeks, keep an eye on our blog for more details!
Looking Ahead -

We have a very full plate in the month of October including two private ghost tours, public ghost tours and several investigations in the works. Lots of planning, prep work and late nights are in our future but we love it and are looking forward to a great fall season.

Don’t Forget Halloween & Civil War Days Tours are coming up in just over a month will be more ghost tours! We have our annual Ghostly Encounters Tour on October 26-27 & our Civil War Haunted History Tour November 2-3, we hope you will join us!
