Newburgh Civitan is one of the chapters Civitan International (Est. 1917), who’s mission is to help make a difference in our community to impact the world.
Since 1972, Newburgh Civitan has been raising funds and supporting out local communities. We are a non-profit organization. Our goal is to reach out and help others with a special emphasis on developmental disabilities.
The “Newburgh Civitan Haunted House” fundraiser started in downtown Newburgh. The project moved between a few locations. In 1989 it was located at First and Polk. It moved to Vann Rd in 1999. Our building serves as a club house, meetings and event room, and the haunted house.
Youth members of Newburgh Junior Civitan work in the attraction with the assistance of the adult club. They learn safety and various skills needed. The makeup, masks, and costumes allow the Juniors to express themselves and teamwork to make the best scares.
