IT’S GHOSTING SEASON! Don’t be scared! This is a fundraiser by Lassen Family Services, Inc. Throughout October, we will be placing little ghosts into yards around Susanville. If our ghosts are placed in your yard, you will receive a form taped to your door explaining how to ghost another lawn! This ghosting is done in GOOD SPIRITS and is not meant to be offensive in any way. These ghosts will REST IN PEACE on a lawn for twenty-four hours until they mysteriously CROSS OVER to another person’s lawn. To ghost someone, please call (530) 257-4599. Thank you for your support! The money raised from this fundraiser allows us to continue providing services to survivors of violence in our community. *This is the only time you should “ghost” someone* #HEALTHYRELATIONSHIPSSAVELIVES
