Lifetree Café event to discuss the paranormal
A team of paranormal investigators confronts the unknown in an exclusive film at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.
The Lifetree film features an investigation conducted at a location long associated with unexplained happenings. The film is part of an hour-long discussion on the plausibility of ghosts and other paranormal phenomena.
"This is a rare chance to join a paranormal investigation team on an actual case," said Mikal Keefer, a Lifetree Café representative. "We'll see exactly what happened and hear investigators explain what it means. And we'll share our own stories of the supernatural."
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.
Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Craig Cable at (970) 292-4838 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
