Participation tickets will be a little less than in previous years, but odds of winning will still be the same as we will adjust everything down, it just means less stamping and writing for you. We will have various mouse related prizes as well as a one of a kind and other WFF in the participation drawings.
Participation activities will include…
Ghost Stories – Be Prepared to share your real life ghost stories for participation tickets.
Scavenger Hunts – details at the event
Room Decorating – Decorate your room in the theme and get participation tickets per person (up to four per room). Sign up at registration so we will know to stop by your room and check it out.
Games – Earn participation tickets for various games throughout the event.
Birthday Card for Annette – Earn participation tickets for bringing a birthday card with heartfelt message for Mrs. Petersen. We will deliver these to her personally at her birthday open house in June.
Scrapbook Page – We will be making a scrapbook for Mrs. Petersen for her 100th birthday. Bring a 12×12 scrapbook page (traditional or digital) from you to Mrs. P to add to her scrapbook. We will present this to her at her birthday open house in June.
Theme Related Attire – All ghouls, monsters and other spooktakular beings should come dressed in a theme related outfit or costume on Saturday for participation tickets. Scary Clowns will NOT be awarded tickets because the event coordinator needs what little sleep she gets!
Walk Socks! – This is a new and hopefully annual event to provide a pair of warm and cozy socks to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy with the motivational message Keep on Walking. Mae Hopke will distribute these to cancer patients in the greater Boston area. Participation tickets for each pair of socks brought.

Echoes of Hope Backpack & Duffel Bag Supply Drive –Echoes of Hope strives to awaken the spirit of hope in the lives of children, teens, and young adults in need by alleviating barriers and helping them reach their full potential. Annually, our organization hosts a backpack & toiletry supply drive to support low-income, at-risk, and current/former foster students with backpacks and school supplies. Additionally, we support homeless, low-income kids, teens, and former foster youth with duffel bags and toiletry kits for those exiting the foster care system. See the supply list link below for the types of items needed. You will receive tickets based on the overall value of items, not per item type as in years past (for example if you buy a backpack you would receive more tickets than a box of pencils or a case of 24 bars of soap would receive more tickets than a single box of crayons). Bringing your receipts with you can help us determine the value of the items. Keep your receipts as Echoes of Hope is a 501(c)3 tax deductible organization. Drop off on Saturday morning or during the breaks with the Participation crew.
