You are invited to visit The Haunted-Woods of Old bridge food drive, brought to you by Boy Scout Troop 167 and Cub pack 67. 

The Haunted Woods of Old Bridge have been running our 3 acre haunt for about 16 years now and they have gotten very good at being scary.  This is a walk through a wooded path featuring displays purchased, donated, and built by the families and friends of the haunted-woods.  At night, the scare-actors populate the trail and add a new dimension of scare to our already frightful atmosphere. 
All they ask as an entry fee is a non-perishable food item (per person, per trip through) which is donated to the Old Bridge food bank.  If you happen to forget your food donation, you're welcome to throw a donation in a pumpkin which is used to purchase additional food.
At the conclusion of the trail, the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts host a bake sale featuring home baked items.  Funds raised here fund the pack and troop activities for the scout year, so it is really appreciated if you buy a cupcake and/or a drink.

See you at "The woods"!
