If you’ve ever experienced a paranormal event that gave you goose bumps, or can share a ghost story that took place in the Yarmouth area, the Yarmouth County Museum wants to hear about it.
Publications chair Sharon Robart-Johnson and archivist Lisette Gaudet are compiling a book about eerie events as a fundraiser for the museum.
“We want people to submit their stories but they have to be factual, not made up,” said Robart-Johnson.
“We want to hear about their own experiences.”
Anything paranormal, including premonitions, possessions, hauntings and foreshadowings, is of interest.
“There’s a lot of ghost stories revolving around ships here in Yarmouth of course, so we would want those,” said Gaudet.
“If we get a lot of submissions we may be able to publish two volumes,” added Robart-Johnson.
The deadline for submissions is Aug. 30. They can be either dropped off at the museum or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. People are also invited to stop by the museum and tell their stories in person to Gaudet.
The book will be selling in the range of $10 - $15.
