New England Ghosts and Good Spirits on 10/29

Paul Eno and Ben Eno to speak at NEIT
Thursday, October 29th, 7 p.m.

ENO

Paul and Ben Eno

…sinister interest in the paranormal, and why?
What do your own paranormal experiences really mean?

These and other mind-expanding questions will be on the table as Paul & Ben Eno, co-hosts of CBS Radio’s and 1240 AM’s “Behind the Paranormal with Paul & Ben Eno” present famous cases from their combined 55 years of experience, at the East Greenwich campus of the New England Institute of Technology on Thursday, Oct, 29, 7pm.

Their “What’s Really Behind the Paranormal” program will take listeners through Paul Eno’s first shocking investigations, including the chilling “Village of Voices” case of 1971, the world-famous Bridgeport Poltergeist of 1974 (with Ed & Lorraine Warren), up to the bizarre and ongoing Connecticut paranormal flap that started with ghosts in 2005 and now involves UFOs, the military and a secret base. Other Eno cases from America and Europe will be included.

After the program, there will be a “Meet and Greet” in the New England Tech library.

“Behind the Paranormal with Paul & Ben Eno” is in its eighth season and has been compared in quality with shows on National Public Radio. It aired on CBS Radio in Boston, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Seattle from 2009-2014, and is now heard in a Boston/Providence drive-time edition on Mondays on WOON 1240 AM, streaming live at ONWorldwide.com and in delayed broadcast on Dark Matters Radio. A regular on “Coast to Coast AM” with George Noory and a familiar face on the History and Travel Channels, Paul Eno is the author of six books on the paranormal. He and Ben starred in “The Devil’s Hour,” a Warner Brothers featurette that accompanied the 2013 release of “The Conjuring.”
Brief Biography of Paul Eno and his son, Ben Eno

Noted Author, Radio Personality, Journalist and Paranormal Investigator PAUL ENO will speak and present a powerpoint on his more than 45 years of paranormal investigations.  Paul has had “hair-raising adventures with famous hauntings, along with utterly unique, riveting theories about paranormal and its meaning for our understanding of the world and ourselves.”

Paul & Ben Eno are best known as the father-son co-hosts of the CBS Radio and WOON 1240 Boston/Worcester/Providence drive-time show “Behind the Paranormal,” with an estimated 3 million listeners. But with a combined 55 years of experience as paranormal researchers, they are far more than talk-show hosts.

Paul was one of the first paranormal investigators of the early 1970s, beginning while he was studying for the priesthood. His early mentors included parapsychology pioneer Dr. Louisa Rhine, Fr. John J. Nicola S.J. (technical advisor for the film The Exorcist) and legendary, first-generation “ghost hunters” Ed & Lorraine Warren. He graduated from two seminaries but was expelled from a third because of his paranormal work with less than two years to go before ordination. He ended up as an award-winning New England journalist and the author of five books on the paranormal and two books on history.

Early on, Paul found that many ghost cases, if thoroughly researched, turned into UFO cases. This led to theories and methods involving never-before-suspected connections between ghosts, cryptids and UFOs.

Ben Eno joined his dad’s adventures in 2005 at the age of 13, demonstrating some unique insights and, at 16, becoming the youngest syndicated broadcaster in America. Ben is a sound expert and is a recent graduate of Emerson College in Boston with a degree in audio engineering and sound design.

New England Tech hosted its 6th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament on Monday, July 13, 2015, at Alpine Country Club in Cranston, RI.

Thirty-five foursomes competed for the tournament’s number one spot.  Congratulations goes to the 1st place foursome of Tom Forsythe, John Sayles, Frank Previti and Brendan McLaughlin from DiSanto, Priest & Co.  Each of these players received a $150 gift certificate to La Masseria Restaurant in East Greenwich, RI. For Tom Forsythe (pictured in the red shirt) the event was especially exciting when he shot a hole-in-one on the 12th hole, winning a Krank Golf Formula 5 Driver sponsored by BMW of Warwick. Tom also won the “closest to the pin” contest since you can’t get much closer than that!

Second place winners were Robert Rainville, Alan Lao, John McNulty and Charlie Perry representing Ruggieri Brothers, Inc.  Each player received a $100 gift certificate to Besos Tea House in East Greenwich, RI.  Third place went to Greg Coady, Matt Finger, Kerry Cole, and John Feldman representing Chartwells.  Each player received a $50 gift certificate to Bistro 9 in East Greenwich, RI.  Our thanks to these establishments for their generous donations.

Winners of the Longest Drive contest were Robin Degraide from Design Fabricators and Nick Soares from Anodyne, Corporation.

The success of the golf tournament is attributed sponsors, players and in-kind donors.  It is with great appreciation that we acknowledge those sponsors who made the tournament one to remember.
