Sussex Academy middle school students and the Counting House Restaurant and Pub partnered for a Ghost Tour and Magic Show in October which served as a fundraiser for the Brandywine Valley Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The walking tour was led by costumed Georgetown Mayor Bill West, who shared stories behind the hauntings at the Brick Hotel, The Old Courthouse and the Judge’s House, among others. A magic show with magician Vince Wilson was held at the end of each tour.

Carla DiGiacomo, of the Brandywine Valley SPCA, was presented with a check for $920 from the event proceeds on Nov. 14.
