A luncheon honoring the women of the Class of 1964 was held in the Chris Drive home of Cheryl Miller Benit on October 2, 2004. A reproduction of Hunter's Playhouse, built by Charles James and painted by his daughter, Vicki O'Rear, was enjoyed by all. Guests were greeted by hostesses (back row, left to right) Mona Myrick Elkins, Anne Sanders Whittington, Cheryl Miller Benit, Eve Baskerville, Sandy Sawyer Addison, and (kneeling) Mary Margaret Evans Fattel. It was truly an affair to remember, reminisce and renew our friendships.

Hunter's Playhouse Remembered By The Class of 1964

Whoever made this little house had precious memories of days gone by

It has to be someone who loved the Hunter family and the Playhouse very much.

Our generation appreciated for what the Hunter family did for us. Someone spent a lot

of time and love into creating this  treasure of the past.  . Can you

imagine how many lives Gladys and Larry Hunter touched? 

Sherry Gresham Gritzbaugh

Mama & Papa were two special people who loved children and were devoted to promoting good for them all.  Their unselfishness was awesome.  It was a special time and place .....and all of us who were there fully realize just how  very special every little bit of it was.  My memories of it are so real I can almost touch them.  With all of it physically gone, I am so very thankful I have such vivid memories of that time and place.                                                                                                                                                                                   Nan Hunter Castle



                                            Many thanks to the 1964 classmates for sharing their Memories of Minden.
