Monster Bash, Incorporated

Monster Bash, Incorporated is the 501(c)(3) charity organization that oversees the Monster Bash Haunted Houses that are created each year for the scares and the fun to support the Music, Theater and Arts programs at Fillmore Central Public Schools, and the District's communities: Fountain, Harmony and Preston located in Fillmore County, Minnesota.

Volunteer driven, the Monster Bash, Incorporated Board of Directors are all volunteers as well and receive no compensation for their time, and all of them have participated in the haunts over the years in one way or another: from being on the "scare floor" itself, to building (and tearing down!) the various haunts that are Different Every Year, to greeting our victims (er...guests!) before and after their trips through the haunted house, to helping out with various projects during the off-season to prepare for upcoming Haunted Houses, to coordinating the numerous volunteers that makes each Haunt come alive, the Board of Directors are active in so many ways other than just sitting around a table and making motions and deciding on issues!

This page contains some of the basic information of the charity's "day-to-day" operations, including the Board of Directors membership and recent minutes from the Board Meetings.
