The paranormal takes center stage during the Halloween season as the Keizer Heritage Center hosts Western Oregon Organization of Paranomal Investigators (WOOPI) on Thursday, Oct. 18.

Elaine Davison and her team will present information about paranormal teams and what they actually do. They will discuss the various types of paranormal teams, and how reality differs from ghost hunters seen on television shows.

There are three types of paranormal teams: Ufology, ghost hunters and cryptozoology. The WOOPI team will talk about some of the equipment they deploy in investigations and their purposes.

The paranormal event will begin at 7 p.m. at the Keizer Heritage Center, and is free to the public but space is limited. Call 503-393-9660 for reservations.
