Minden Fire Department works to move this year's St. Jude playhouse to the Minden Civic Center. The department chose to build a schoolhouse in honor of St. Jude supporter and retired schoolteacher, Cora Lou Robinson.
The 10-by-12-foot playhouse features electricity, vinyl siding, loft, balcony and functional windows. It is fully-furnished and decorated, cable TV-ready and has a functional cast iron school bell. Tickets are $10 per chance to win and can be purchased by going to www.mindenstjude.com.
