The Haunted Forest at GSU


    This Halloween, the Center for Addiction Recovery at Georgia Southern University brought back the Haunted Forest for another year of spooky fun. The history of the Haunted Forest dates back to 1980, when Professor "Mouse" Blankenbaker launched the event for the first time. Blankenbaker, who taught recreation and leisure studies, hosted the event with the help of the students in her planning program class. The forest was a phenomenal success and continued to be an annual occurrence until Blankenbaker's retirement in 2003.
    In 2009, the Center for Addiction Recovery resurrected the forest after a six-year break. With the help of university students and local volunteers, the Haunted Forest was a success once again and celebrated another year of Halloween excitement. It has continued since. The frights start even while people drive up to the soccer fields behind Paulson Stadium, with a demonic clown actually jumping into some cars.
    These are just some of the scenes from this year's event. Proceeds benefit the Center for Addiction Recovery and the Boys and Girls Club of Bulloch County.
