The Franklin County Visitors Bureau is pleased to name the Ghost Pit as the official investigation team of the Franklin County Visitors Bureau and announce a third investigation of paranormal activity at the Franklin County 11/30 Visitors Center in downtown Chambersburg on Thursday, January 31, 2019. The investigation, led by Ghost Pit founder Brian Phillips, begins at 8 PM and runs until 11 PM. The Ghost Pit team performed two investigations prior to the nine-month renovation of 15 South Main Street.
The property, built in 1865 as the National Bank of Chambersburg, served the community as a bank for 150 years. It replaced a previous bank, burned by Confederate soldiers in July 1864 when residents of Chambersburg could not pay a ransom demand of $100,000 in gold or $500,000 in Yankee currency.
FCVB launched its relationship with the Ghost Pit in December 2017 with an initial investigation of the property. A second investigation was completed two months later, just before renovation of the property began. In these investigations, the Ghost Pit documented several paranormal interactions, including a playful exchange with a young boy, who played a game of hide and seek. Though all interactions were benevolent, a 19th century bank executive was worried about the security of bank funds as was a 20th century bank guard.
The Franklin County Visitors Bureau invites the public to join the paranormal investigation. Tickets are limited to the first 26 participants and are $10/person.
Following the January 31 investigation, the Ghost Pit will give an update of paranormal activity at 15 South Main Street during IceFest Saturday, February 2, in the second-level Great Room of the Franklin County 11/30 Visitors Center at 2 PM.
Exploring paranormal activity with The Ghost Pit is just one way to discover Franklin County PA. The Franklin County Visitors Bureau invites all to explore history, arts and architecture, recreation, natural beauty, fresh foods and the warm hospitality of communities like Chambersburg, Greencastle, Mercersburg, Shippensburg, and Waynesboro. Franklin County PA is located just north of the Mason Dixon Line and is an easy drive to Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. Plan a visit at ExploreFranklinCountyPA.com, contacting 866.646.8060, or stopping by the new Franklin County 11/30 Visitors Center on the square in Chambersburg.
FUN JUST ADDED at Capitol Theatre ln Thursday, January 10, 2019! For this Standup Performance, some great pre-show activities are happening. At 6:30, improvisation activities for all – and possibly to help warm up for the upcoming auditions for the improv troupe, coming to the Capitol on January 14-15, called “The Improvables.” You certainly don’t have to audition for the Improvables if you don’t want to, but do come early to the Wood Center and have a fun time improving with others – no experience necessary, just bring your creativity and willingness to ‘let go!’
Also – bring a pair of new socks at 6:30. After the improv activities are done (around 7pm) there will be a special, fun activity with the socks. The winner of the activity will receive a prize (to be determined) and all of the socks will be donated to the homeless shelter just down the block.
SCOTT BRUCE – You may catch Scott on a cruise ship, at a nightclub in Las Vegas, or a Moose Lodge in rural Pennsylvania. The one thing you are guaranteed is a good time and a lot of laughs. His quick wit, ad-libbing ability, and natural timinghave combined to create this unique performer. For example, he’s a published author. Not one, not two, but three books are available on store shelves right now. Scott hosted the EMMY award winning PBS television show “The Pennsylvania Game.” In between traveling the country, telling jokes, and writing books, he managed to start and run a successful business. It should come as no surprise that the business is a small chain of comedy clubs called Wise Crackers. He also creates game shows, produces comedy shows for television, writes, raises a family and constantly works on his incredibly mediocre golf game. So if you see his name coming to a city near you, get your tickets early. You don’t want to miss Scott Bruce!

IRWIN LORING – Irwin was the Featured comid in November and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. His comedy revolves around his family, relationships, religion, and society in general. He was raised in a farming community in upstate New York, by a single Jewish mother household. He blames his mother for his bizarre views on parenting, and his overall outlook on life. He brings an energy to the room that makes audiences laugh wherever he performs. His style can be described as a mix of David Brenner and George Carlin, with a touch of Don Rickles.

Guitarist: Greg Klyma
Greg Klyma puts his heart, soul, and right foot into every song. A versatile performer who’s just as comfortable laying down the rock ‘n’ roll & honky tonk country as he is in the role of folk troubadour, tellin’ songs and singin’ stories…Road tested troubadour. Relentless songwriter. Greg Klyma’s biggest influences include, Steve Earle, Tom Petty, Willie Nelson, Todd Snider, AC/DC, the Everly Brothers, and Hank Williams. Be it a house concert, a festival stage, or a darkened barroom, you’ll find him playing his well-loved guitar and spinning yarns. Greg is on tour in support of Never Knew Caroline, featuring Peter Case, Gurf Morlix, and Bill Kirchen, and just might’ve written a new one this week.
