Yeater Haunted Tours collects food Warrensburg – The South Todd/Yeater Hall Council hosted the seventh annual Yeater Haunted Tours Oct. 25-27, raising 800 canned goods to fight hunger in Warrensburg. South Todd and Yeater Hall residents and volunteers treat students, faculty, staff and community members to scares in Yeater Hall’s old sorority wing and stories of Yeater’s history and supposed hauntings on the third floor. Residents decorated the old
sorority wing on Yeater’s ground floor to look like a haunted dolls’ house. Visitors toured Yeater’s third f loor, which has been closed since 2001. Many of the building’s residents believe it to be haunted by the ghosts of Laura Yeater, the building’s founder, and George W. Diemer Jr., the son of former UCM President George W. Diemer Sr. More than 700 students and community members raised 800 non-perishable food items and
more than $1,400. All food items are donated to food centers, while the monetary proceeds support the hall council and its other upcoming philanthropies. “The Yeater Haunted Tours were such a success,” said Erin Br id gem a n, Sout h To dd / Ye at er Hall Council president. “We have even had a lot of people ask if we will do more tours in the future in addition to the traditional October tours.”
