Thanks for making Halloween event a success | Letter

The ghouls, clowns and creepy characters have all checked out of Beaver Lake Park having scared and spooked the 15,000 brave souls who attended the 14th production of the “Nightmare at Beaver Lake.”

Not only does the Nightmare provide safe and fun activity for our youth to enjoy as spectators or volunteers, the Nightmare is also a fundraiser for Rotary charities. The net proceeds are used to fund college scholarships, a variety of local community service grants and international projects.

The Nightmare is a community effort and the Rotary Club of Sammamish would like to thank all of the community and business partners who made it possible.

First, we give much appreciation to the City of Sammamish and its Parks Department who made one of our city’s most beautiful parks available for the staging of the event.

The Rotary’s other partner, Scare Productions, was invaluable in providing the creativity and expertise necessary in staging a world class Halloween Haunt.

We thank our local sponsors: Sammamish YMCA, Metropolitan Market, Stephen Bozick of Caliber Home Loans, Klahanie Service Center Chevron, Plateau Jewelers, Tom Sessions of State Farm, Sherwin Williams Sammamish, Loews, Prime Electric, Republic Services, The Reporter and Fastsigns.

Many thanks go out to our participating community groups: the Kiwanis Clubs of Redmond, Kirkland Sunrisers, Sammamish and Issaquah Valley, Rotary Club of Issaquah, Athletes for Kids, Explorers and High Valley Riders.

We also had many unaffiliated community volunteers help with transportation, ticket booth sales, security and volunteer meals.

Your friends and neighbors who comprise the Rotary Club of Sammamish would finally like to thank all of the Halloween fans and fanatics who also made this year a success. We sincerely hope you had a “spooktacular” experience in our little Nightmare. We hope you had as much fun being scared as we had scaring you.

Please visit www.sammamishrotary.org for more information about our club, sponsors, beneficiaries and projects.

Hauntingly yours,

Kristina Williams, president

The Rotary Club of Sammamish
