This Sunday, visitors expecting just scares and screams at Fright Haven, CT’s Largest Scariest & Greatest Haunted House will get an extra treat. Making a rare area appearance to meet and greet guests will be Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Drummer Neal Smith of the original Alice Cooper Band.
Smith pounded the skins for Alice Cooper on all the band’s classic albums and tours from the late sixties through the 70s, and in 2011, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the Alice Cooper Band.  His solid drumming is the hallmark sound behind such classic Alice Cooper hits as “School’s Out,” “I’m Eighteen,” “Billion Dollar Babies” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”
He will be on hand at the Halloween entertainment venue this Sunday, October 28th, from 7-10 p.m., to meet fans, pose for photos and sign autographs (fee). Neal will have his new CD, “KillSmith Halloween,” available.

Fright Haven is open every evening through Halloween night, Wednesday, October 31. The world-class venue is comprised of three different haunted attractions all under one roof, all newly redesigned for this season, and all included in the price of admission ($20 online/advance, $25 door). All attractions, including the Special Guest, are indoors so unlike outdoor haunts Fright Haven is open rain or shine (the more thunder and lightning the better!) and is completely handicapped accessible. Ample free lighted parking.

From the drummer of the band that made every day Halloween: “Happy Halloween to all of my sick things around the world! Play my ‘KillSmith Halloween’ loud and let it scare the “HELL” out of you!”  — Neal Smith

Stephen Bergin meets some children from Turkey Hill School

Parents and children from Turkey Hill School attended the July 9  Orange Board of Education meeting, anxious to meet the new principal, Stephen Bergin.

Racebrook School Principal Mike Gray was chairman of the search committee and said that out of 50 applicants, Bergin immediately stood out in the crowd.

Board Member Bobby Ricciardi was on search team one. He praised Gray for his leadership skills, stepping in when needed and taking a step back when he could. He also said Bergin was an excellent candidate from the get-go and his team was confident when it turned their recommendation over to team two.

Board Member Bill Kraut was on search team two. He echoed Ricciardi’s comments stating that Bergin was a wonderful choice for Turkey Hill School — where his daughter attends classes — and further expressed his confidence in their choice.

The father of two children, Bergin’s family did not accompany him to the meet and greet for reasons that he quickly explained when he was introduced. His mother and sister did join him for his special night.
