The Spooktacular Haunted Village returns to Aztec. The Aztec High School Key Clubbers are once again teaming up with the Aztec Museum for some fiendish fun. The devilish pranksters have taken over Pioneer Village again transforming it into a maze leading to ghastly surpises! It's a ghoulish undertaking according to Key Club Co-Advisor and AHS science teacher, Debbie Klein, "The kids do everything really, I am here as an advisor, mostly I just make suggestions." Klein explained that as a "student led organization" the Key Club's mission is to, "Provide the opportunity to build character, develop leadership skills through service to the community. We believe in making a positive impact through service and volunteerism."

After 14 years (four in partnership with the museum) the "Haunted Village" has become the club's most successful fund-raiser of the year raising over $2500 last year.

According to Klien, after expenses the profits are divided and donated to select charities including, March of Dimes, Unicef and The Children's Miracle Network.

As far as what goes into creating the spine-chilling fantasy village, "The kids really have creative license when it cames to the decor." Klien said that the key clubbers divide themselves into groups, decide on a theme for each scene and work together in making that vision happen, "The kids are totally responsible for what happens in that building." Klien discribed how last year the school house became more like a zombie chop-shop. Klein urged everyone to come on out on and get your scream on.

The Haunted Village will be open Saturday, October 27, 6 p.m. till 10 and on Halloween night Wednesday October 31 from 6 p.m. till 10. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for kids under 12.
