His favorite PDG memory:  Hands-down, Helen P. Butler entering the arena as Dolly Madison, dragging a steam iron whose cord got caught on the back of her dress, at SCTC in Memphis.

[Ed. note: Michael O'Brien states that Mr. Gendreau's memory is faulty: "that Miz Pritchard Butler & her steam
iron took place at the BERNIE HARRIS MIDDLE SCHOOL in Athens, as I was there AND dancing with "Barbs, Barbs, Our Only Barbs" Hause when said Steam Iron dragged/scraped out onto das floor."]

Hutto, Denise Member: Gee! I don't really remember! I think it was 1974-1976

Where she is now: I got my degree in Anthropology at Georgia in 1978, then went to Southern Illinois University and got my Masters in Anthro. I met my husband there. After school, we lived in New York for a while, then moved to Madison, Wisconsin, where we've lived since 1986. We have one son, who just left home for his freshman year in college. I'm an archaeology curator for the Wisconsin Historical Society Museum. I love Madison, but miss my southern "home." The winter goes on forever up here! My mom and my sister Mary Ann (who was also in the group for a while) both still live in South Carolina, so I get to that part of the country 2 or 3 times a year. I miss dancing, I keep threatening to make my husband take dance lessons with me, but so far, it hasn't happened. Thanks, Dale, for putting this web site together!

Favorite PDG memory: Embarrassing, but I don't remember much! I loved wearing Martha Washington's hand-painted gown. I do remember having a wonderful time dancing with the group.
