Trick Or Treat Hours Changed In Campbellsport
Members of the Camp-bellsport Village Board, during their Monday, Oct. 10, meeting, decided to change the hours for trick or treating in the village. It will now be on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 2 p.m.-4 p.m.
Last year, the board passed a resolution to always have trick or treating on the fourth Saturday of October from 3 p.m.-5 p.m. This year, that would have meant Saturday, Oct. 22, since there are five Saturdays in October.
Some residents called the village office and some called board members to ask if the date could be changed closer to Hallo-ween. Board members discussed changing the wording in the resolution and discussed the best day of the weekend and time of day for trick or treating.
"I think it's really kind of a preference, there's no right or wrong," said Police Chief Jay Zautner. This was in response to being questioned if he thought a Saturday or Sunday would be better.
"In Campbellsport it was always the last Sunday from two to four," said Dean Uelmen, who asked to have the trick or treat hours put on the agenda for the meeting. "It was always two to four and because of St. Matthew's Mass (on Saturday), I think that is best. You're always going to have some type of issue wheth-er its Saturday or Sunday. All I'm asking is you move it closer to the end of October."
A few years ago, the date was changed to a Saturday because Hallo-ween was on Saturday that year. After that, the village stayed with the Saturday hours.
After a lot of discussion, the board members ap-proved a resolution to have trick or treating in the Vil-lage of Campbellsport ev-ery year on the last Saturday of October from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. starting this year.
So, for this year, it has been changed to Saturday, Oct. 29, from 2 p.m.-4 p.m.

Dotyville Home Of Newest Haunted House
Dan Cartwright has always looked forward to Halloween. Since he can remember, this holiday has always held a special place in his heart.
"Halloween for some reason has always been something I've loved," Dan said.
Everyone could tell this was his favorite holiday too. All you have to do is drive by his house on North Park Avenue in Fond du Lac around Halloween and you can see just how much he likes this holiday. He was decorating his yard and his neighbors' yards for the holiday.
"I've worked haunted houses and corn mazes and always wanted to do one of my own," Dan said.
Last year, Dan was able to realize the dream of having his own haunted house. He started the Warriors Haunted Asylum in Dotyville. This year, he and his crew are back with their haunted asylum along County Highway W in the small town.
Dan and his wife, Tammy, were given a semi full of old props and sets from the haunted house that used to be run by the Jaycees of Fond du Lac. When he was given this gift, Dan knew this was their opportunity to start their own haunted house.
The haunted asylum is located in a building that used to house a bar and dance hall with a stage, and an apartment. This gives them a lot of space and unique characteristics of the building to utilize.
To start your tour through the asylum, you walk up a stair case to a door on the top floor. Walking up these stairs at night is a little bit creepy all on its own and then the fun begins.
