The Dickinson State University Business Club will be assisting with the annual Reaper’s Keep haunted barn as a continued effort to be more active in the local community. The Reaper’s Keep is made possible by Anita and Dave Weiler of Dave’s Quality Carpet Care and various volunteer groups.

Each year, Quality Carpet Care gives a portion of their collected revenue to clubs and organizations who have contributed to the project. This year, the DSU Business Club and the Dickinson High School band are working together to put up walls, paint, and construct props throughout the month of October as well as work as part of the “scream team” on Halloween night. New to the event is the Zombie Shoot, in which participants will use paintball guns to exterminate zombies.

“The Reaper’s Keep will be even scarier than it was last year and should be lots of fun for participants,” said Holly Gruhlke, Business Club advisor. “We were very fortunate that Anita and her crew allowed us to take part in this experience again. We have a blast setting up and scaring during this event.”

The Reaper’s Keep will be open on October 25, 26 and 31 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. and is located one mile south of Dickinson. Additionally, a family day held on Sunday, October 27 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. will feature a lighted tour of the haunted barn as well as various other family geared events. Admission is $5 per person for the haunted barn tour and $5 for the Zombie Shoot.
