Haunted houses offer thrills, chills

October is the month for haunted houses and other horror-themed attractions and events, several of which are already scaring thrill seekers in mid-Missouri.

On Fort Leonard Wood, members of Better Opportunities for Single Service Members have been hard at work decorating Building 781. The former motor pool complex is scheduled to be demolished, but not before it renders one last service — as the BOSS Haunted House.
“Our BOSS council, numerous volunteers, the Safety Office and (the Fort Leonard Wood) Fire Department have been working many hours to get the building ready,” said Conny Obermuller, BOSS advisor and Special Events coordinator with the Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Installation Wide Events office.
