Arney Drive and surrounding areas in Fish Lake near Walkerton have a huge paranormal feel to them. My aunt's former home felt really creepy whenever I was alone.|

I work at the Masonite plant next to the cemetery. Two nights ago I was walking toward a work station while the floor was on break. As I approached, I saw a seven-foot composite wood door panel (what we call a ''skin'') glide through the air and land in front of me near my path. It moved was like it was tossed. I figured that I must have been mistaken about everyone being on break and that there was an employee still sorting them. Obviously this had to have been a defect, and they were pitching it to the side. As I neared the station though, I saw that there was definitely nobody there.
As I approached, one of the girls was returning from break. She'd been about as far away as I'd been when it happened but coming from the opposite direction. I slowed down to look at the skin on the floor next to me and immediately noticed that it wasn't even the style that the station had been working on. I was getting ready to just assume I'd been seeing things when she asked ''did you just see that, too?'' What was even weirder was that I hadn't noticed it propped up or anything for a breeze to have knocked it over, and even if it had it would have fallen way differently because I've seen that before.
The skins are light, and it would have settled gently straight down to the floor buffered by the displacement of air beneath it as it fell. This looked like it was thrown, and I couldn't figure out where it had come from. There wasn't any ''missing mass'' in my field of vision left by its absence. She couldn't figure out where it had come from either. It was defective though- it had a crack in it- so at least it got discarded properly one way or another.
Talking to another employee, I learned that a few people have died in the building over the years sadly. This employee shared an experience that she had during which she saw an apparition in the building. With what I saw though, I'm not sure I'd say it was an actual ghost. If it was caused by paranormal activity, I'd lean more toward poltergeist activity first. Especially activity guided by RSPK (recurrent spontaneous psycho kinesis).
I happen to know there was one person nearby who could have been throwing off some excess energy unconsciously, but that would be a guess. Without being able to fully investigate the immediate area to totally discount a natural explanation I can't really say for sure. Either way it was definitely unexpected and a little unsettling.
