EVERY JOB application should read, `How do you volunteer in your community?' because everyone has something [he or she] can share," says Sharon Callahan. Since arriving in Hampstead three years ago, Callahan has generated volunteer spirit in her workplace and tapped into unique ideas to create positive change in Hampstead. She starts with something as small as a packet of seeds, a coupon and a funny wig. The tiny idea creates a ripple effect. This year marks the second - under the auspices of the Hampstead Business Association - that she has given seeds to residents and businesses along Main Street.

With an uncanny knack for turning discarded items into chilling special effects, the group had plotted since August about how to build a guillotine and set up creepy acts inside a tarp-covered tunnel of fog-filled rooms.
