McCOOK, Nebraska -- The 12th annual Haunted Bank Tour at McCook National Bank on Saturday, offered a spooky good time, with more than 600 people going through the Scary Tour, and more than 300 kids and parents going through the Not-So-Scary Tour.

While several things about it have changed over the years, one thing has not, and that is the admission fee to get in to the tours. To be admitted each person must provide a donation to the Coat Closet or McCook Food Pantry. This year approximately 100 coats and clothing items were collected for the Coat Closet, while 980 pounds of food and a check for $140 was collected for the McCook Food Pantry.

It took the help of 68 individuals to run the event this year, and would not be possible without each and every one of them.
