St. John Ambulance Haunted House Saturday

Directly across from the Old House Inn, 6-9 p.m.

Medical first response volunteers with St. John Ambulance are hosting a Haunted House on Saturday, Oct. 29 to get the community SET for Halloween.

Located directly across from the Old House Inn at 84 -1742 Cliffe Ave. in Courtenay, the event will run from 6-9 p.m.

Organized to give the members of the community a chance to meet each other, and learn more about St. John Ambulance and its local charitable programs, the Haunted House will be family-friendly with fun and games for all.

There will also be a reception for mingling, plus a scary sensory area for those brave enough to enter.

“A few months of prep have gone into organizing this haunted house,” shares Rob Carlson, a volunteer Medical First Responder with St. John Ambulance. “We’re all very excited and think the public will get a serious, but fun, fright from the tricks.”

St. John Ambulance is asking that members of the public bring a non-perishable donation for the food bank.

As a charity, St. John Ambulance also appreciates any monetary donations made towards supporting their local medical first response services in the Comox Valley, a program only made possible through training and product proceeds, and donations.

With the community’s support, St. John Ambulance hopes to turn the haunted house into an annual event.

As the safety partner for every resident in B.C. and Yukon, St. John Ambulance ensures people are SET with “safety, education and tools” at work, home and play. Proceeds from training and products support volunteer-based charitable community care programs.
