Cheryl Sodergren was among the hundreds of people who went through the Boy Scouts' Haunted House this weekend, and she had a good time.

Matthew Vielhauer, who's assistant Scout master with Boy Scout Troop 117, said the haunted house was a fund-raiser for the troop. It was, in fact, the first fund-raiser for the year. This was the second year for the troop to have a haunted house and the first year using the old Sheridan Iron Works building.

Vielhauer said this year's haunted house was about three times larger than last year's. The house was for three nights, Friday through Sunday, but the Scouts also put in two weeks of preparation before the event started. Vielhauer said use of the building was donated by the building's owner, Derek Gilbert, and Star Video Audio, Home Depot and Kmart all donated money and equipment.

Vielhauer said about 600 people came to the haunted house on Friday, and about 800 on Saturday. He said on Saturday night, the line of people went all the way from the building on Crook Street to Sheridan Avenue.

Vielhauer said money raised from the event will help finance the boys' trips to the camps that Boy Scouts attend. This year, that includes Jamboree, which is every four years.
