WHY I TRICK OR TREAT FOR GRACE SMITH HOUSE
I have been participating in the Grace Smith Pumpkin Parade since its inception. As the Hudson Valley Halloween Queen, I feel it’s my duty to help banish poltergeist activity in our community. Grace Smith House is a valued service to local men, women and children in need. No one should every feel fear in their own home. People are often blind to vengeful spirits they cannot see. Having been witness to domestic violence, I can tell you first hand — it’s scarier than any horror movie you will ever see. This frightfully fun event creates awareness for domestic violence in a way that is fun and friendly. If with the wave of my wand, I can lift the shadows from one person or family, I have done my job. Raising money for GSH is a small effort that reaps great rewards.
