Believe it or not, ghosts are REAL! So says Peter Roe – author and Assistant Director of renowned Canadian paranormal research team The Searcher Group. Roe will be visiting Edinburgh Square Heritage and Cultural Centre on Saturday, October 5 to discuss his popular book Haunted Town Halls. The Centre, which once served as Caledonia’s Town Hall, is located at 80 Caithness Street East.
The Searcher Group is a team of individuals involved in the study of parapsychology – a field of study that investigates paranormal or “psychic” phenomena that cannot be explained by current scientific knowledge. 2019 marks the group’s 40th anniversary of paranormal investigation.
In March 2014, Roe arranged for The Searcher Group to apply their collective skills at the Acton Town Hall Centre, launching what became the first of several stops on a two and-a-half-year ‘Town Hall Tour’ throughout southwestern Ontario. Peter felt these investigations would make an interesting experiment to see how the team fared in a number of historic buildings that once served the same purpose.
The results of this experiment and his book Haunted Town Halls will be the focus of Roe’s presentation on October 5. Roe will lead a special presentation, followed by a question and answer session and book signing. Roe points out that “…one doesn’t need to be a complete believer to enjoy a good ghost story.”
The cost for this program is $10.00 per person; it’s suitable for mature (13+) audiences. Registration may be completed online at link.haldimandcounty.ca using program code 10315 or in-person at any County office.
