Connecticut is one of the nation’s most haunted states. Known for its paranormal activity, with dozens of tales from Cornwall to Southington, there’s an aura of paranormal activity that has its folklore in the state’s history.

Who better to detail this history and how to determine what is paranormal and what isn’t than Connecticut’s own Ghost Hunters Guild – and area residents will have an opportunity to hear them directly on Saturday thanks to Friends of Berlin Animal Control. 

The guild will join local residents at the Berlin Senior Center Saturday night, from 5 to 8 p.m., for a special benefit fundraiser. The event is open to the public and will focus on providing opportunities for residents to learn more about the paranormal said Karen Winiarski.

“Ghost hunter and adventure television shows are so popular now and we figured this time of year, people would be curious about it,” said Winiarski, chairwomen of the fundraising committee. “We figured this would stand out and be more of an opportunity than a traditional bake sale or bizarre.”

The idea came when Winiarski said members of the committee sat down to think outside the box. She had met members of the guild a few years ago and called them in August to see if they might be free. After setting a date, the group was available and she said the town is fortunate to bring established experts in around Halloween.

The guild, a dedicated group of forensic scientists, first formed in 2007 after an increased interest due to television shows, according to the group’s website.

From there, the group began expanding and now conducts efforts across New England. Those efforts will be made public, along with a look at the tools and results, during the presentation on Oct. 26, according to Winiarki.

The event will also include psychics for those interested in getting a reading.

“We really are just aiming for this to be a fun, educational event that will benefit everyone in the community,” she said.

Tickets are $5 in advance and slightly more at the door as space allows. For more information, including how to purchase tickets, click the link provided.
