Rotary to again offer 'Landmark' scare

GREENVILLE — If you happen to see people shuffling around downtown Greenville Rally Round Greenville moaning “brains!” do not worry, they are most likely not real zombies.

The Greenville Rotary Club will be promoting that its Haunted Landmark portion of the Landmark on Lee Street will be open for scares every weekend of October.

“They will be wandering throughout the crowd, scaring kids I’m sure,” Gloria Jordan, secretary for the Rotary Club said.

Jordan said the “zombies”, members of the Interact Club and Destination Imagination teams at Greenville Independent School District, will also be performing renditions of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” throughout the event for attendees to enjoy.

The project came about when Bob Arrington came up with the idea to utilize the basement of the Landmark.

“Bob Arrington came up with this because he and a few people used to run the one at the mall,” she said.

Jordan said the attraction was a big hit last year and expects it to be the same this year.

“It’s a fun time,” she said. “The people who went through it last year really enjoyed it.”

According to Arrington, a few additions will be made to the landmark to give new scares for returning patrons.

“It’s about 30 percent larger,” he said. “We don’t want to reveal too much. We have four new areas in the unit and remodeled. I think we can give people a whole new trip.”

Arrington said for those brave enough, the new additions will be highly entertaining and scary.

“We’ll give everyone an even greater thing as long as they don’t run through with their hands in their face,” he said. “We have several new characters and a large group of zombies and scary people.”

Past rotarian president Dennisha Benney said people who pay the $12 entry fee will be scared for a good cause.

“All of the proceeds we get goes lacally to charities such as CASA and the Fish Food Pantry,” she said.

The landmark also has discounts for groups of 10 or more and has special coupon options on its Facebook page.
