YMCA in Illinois gets money from ghost hunters

Just a little quickie here to remind you that paranormal tours are $$$ and some places in need of cash will allow them. Sad.

Paranormal group to offer ghost-hunting events at Granite City YMCA

The Granite City Council approved an agreement with a ghost-hunting group, allowing it to use the former Granite City [Illinois] YMCA building.

The After Dark Paranormal Group plans to offer ghost-hunting investigations of the downtown building near City Hall.

Under the terms of the one-year agreement, After Dark Paranormal will pay half of its net revenue to the city.

Why don’t they just call it a ghost zoo and charge admission?

    Not so different, I suppose, from having a “haunted house” at Halloween as a fundraiser. Maybe it’ll even do some good, as people pay their money and are inevitably dissappointed.

    I have no problem with this at all. For many years I gave talks at St Briavels castle and joined a group of volunteers looking after ghosthunters there – all money taken (not just all profits) went to the Youth Hostel Association who owned the property, and a large amount of money was raised for this worthy cause. Furthermore by charging £25 a ticket, alter £30 including bed and breakfast it massively undercut the commercial ghost nights in the market, who when the events started used to charge up to £150 to listen to a “psychic” and sit in the dark in other venues.
