The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Maple is scheduled to host a haunted cutter community event at the Coast Guard pier in Sitka Wednesday.
The annual Halloween event, which is geared toward visitors age 13 and older, will run from 7-11 p.m.
Suggested admission for the event is one canned or dry goods item per person. All proceeds will be donated to charity organizations in the Sitka community.
"Turning the cutter into a haunted house gives us a chance to have fun and help the community at the same time," said Ensign Karli Collins, morale officer for Coast Guard Cutter Maple. "We enjoy being able to give back to Sitka to show appreciation for all the support its residents provide."
