The Van Buren County Rescue Squad’s annual Haunted Hay Ride was a monstrous success this year, organizers said, with more than 400 people going on the ride. This year, the squad presented two $500 donations from the proceeds, one to the Shop with a Cop program and the other to the Van Buren County Long Term Care program, which is helping tornado victims.
