Murder Mystery at Harrison House Bed & Breakfast
Submitted by Edel Cowan
‘Tis the season for Drew Beasley to host the annual bash at the Harrison House. Excitement is hanging thickly in the air, as the VIPs of Pandora City gear up to mingle with friends, colleagues and of course – unavoidable foes. Drew Beasley, the CFO of the Harrison House, firmly believes that building community spirit around the Harrison House is the only way to keep the historical bed & breakfast alive. However, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the townspeople of Pandora City to remain harmonious in the same place for too long of a time. Drew and the staff of the Harrison House have taken extreme measures this year to divert the guests’ attention away from each other and toward the party’s festivities. They have planned a delectable menu, fun party games and of course, spirited music for the guests to enjoy. This might be their last shot at hosting a successful shindig, as the heir to the Harrison estate is growing tired of the way the Harrison House is managed. Hopefully, the staff can prove that the annual bash is a necessity for the Harrison House’s ultimate success. Without the yearly buzz as a reminder, the townspeople could forget about the Harrison House even though it has been in Pandora City for over 100 years.
Saturday, March 9, 2019: Occurrences taking place:
As the guests made their arrival at the “Harrison House Bed & Breakfast” they were instructed to choose a character from the cast list, find a table and take time to read and study their character. A very delicious roast beef supper, managed by members the Prairie Pride Credit Union, was then enjoyed by the 150 guests in attendance. When things were cleared away Round 1 began – this was where the characters did their questioning and mingling “to get to know you”. When a reasonable amount of time had elapsed it was time for Round 2 – The Balloon Stomp Game – and the Purple team won. Then three “shots” were heard and the murder had occurred. The victim was character Tracy Howe which was played by Chelsy Minshull. A few minutes were given to CSI of trying to figure out the fingerprint report and where everyone was at the time of the murder. It was now Round 3 for Confessions to be made by the main characters to reveal that the murderer was character Bronte Vance which was played by Quince Boutin. It was a great fun evening.
