Dead of Night at the Museum
Paranormal Investigation

Saturday, Oct 25th Sunday Oct 26th 5:00AM - 5:00PM

Howard County Historical Society
| http://hchsmd.org/events |

As a part of the HallowRead convention October 24th - 26th in Historic Ellicott City, the Howard County Historical Society Museum is partnering with Dead of Night Paranormal Investigation for an event at the "*most haunted* building" in Ellicott City, Maryland. * Dead of Night at the Museum*- a twelve-hour paranormal investigation on October 25th, 2014, will run from 5pm to 5am at a time when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. We will have a hauntingly good evening that includes a lecture, a Q & A session about the paranormal, palm readings, and a full investigation of the building. Team merchandise and refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the night.

Come investigate the haunted site of a former Presbyterian church that dates back nearly two hundred years. In this building, there have been reports of a young girl spirit who enjoys certain collections at the Howard County Historical Society Museum. Staff members have felt the presence of a spirit in the basement of the old church and have witnessed a clipboard being moved off of a desk. There have been additional reports of footsteps, strange smells, and unusual sounds at this location. Could it be a former pastor of the Presbyterian Church making his presence known? Perhaps some spirits wandered over from the Howard County Courthouse next door? Maybe the current artifacts housed in this building hold residual energy?

This event will take place at the Howard County Historical Society Museum (8328 Court Avenue Ellicott City, MD).

Tickets are $35 each. Click Here to Purchase

Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K
Thursday, November 27, 2014

Long Gate Shopping Center, 4310 Montgomery Rd., Ellicott City, MD

Families will come together to join the Y of Central Maryland for the annual Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K, a Thanksgiving Day tradition that raises critically-needed funds to support kids whose families live in poverty throughout Central Maryland. This year, on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 27, 2014, the Y will host its Turkey Trot Charity 5K in Ellicott City (Long Gate Shopping Center, 4310 Montgomery Rd., Ellicott City, MD).

Each Y Turkey Trot will feature a 5K Run/Walk, and prizes will be awarded in each age group. Proceeds benefit children whose families can’t afford educational and enrichment opportunities that many kids take for granted, such as Y Preschool and Camp. Evergreen Health is the Title Sponsor.

The Turkey Trot Charity 5K is the perfect event for the entire family to get some exercise before the big feast, and join others to put more “thanks” and “giving” into Thanksgiving by supporting struggling families in the community.

Register online at http://www.ymaryland.org until Monday, November 24, 2014 or at your local Family Center Y until Wednesday, November 26, 2014.  Registration closing times on the 26th (and locations) vary, please see website for details.
