Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate are pleased to learn that Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. Hutto will celebrate their sixtieth wedding anniversary on July 10, 2014; and

Whereas, Harriet Lancaster and Charles Hutto both grew up in the Providence community near Holly Hill, and on July 10, 1954, they pledged to one another a lifetime of love and sharing as they were joined in holy matrimony at Providence United Methodist Church, where they have remained faithful and active members; and

Whereas, the couple built their home on the family farm where they have lived all their married life and which has been in the Hutto family over two hundred twenty-five years and has been designated as a National Bicentennial Farm; and

Whereas, together they reared three fine sons, Charles Bradley "Brad" Hutto born in 1957, Bartley Lancaster "Bart" Hutto born in 1959, and Burton Roy "Burt" Hutto born in 1961; and

Whereas, during their sons' formative years, the farm was a productive dairy farm where beef cattle were also raised, so the young boys were naturally exposed to many aspects of the farming industry; and

Whereas, the Huttos also owned Hutto Stockyard, a livestock auction market, and co-owned and managed Farmers' Machinery Company, a dealership for International Harvester Farm Equipment; and

Whereas, Harriet Hutto worked briefly before her children were born, and then she became a full-time housewife and mother, very involved in the lives of her sons during their pre-school and school years, serving as a chauffeur for almost every class trip in which they were involved; and

Whereas, she served as a den mother for the Cub Scout Pack of which all three sons were members, and after they graduated and were employed, she re-entered the marketplace to work in the law office of her oldest son, Brad; and

Whereas, while she was still employed in his office, he ran a successful campaign for his first term in the South Carolina Senate, and she retired soon after his election to have more time with her grandchildren; and

Whereas, Charles Hutto was a wonderful role model to his sons as he faithfully provided for his family, taught his sons to hunt, introduced them to work on the farm, and served as a coach of their Little League teams; and

Whereas, Charles and Harriet supported all three sons in their educational process, from kindergarten through post-graduate studies, and during one year when all three sons were enrolled in institutions of higher learning, the Huttos were making tuition payments to three different colleges; and

Whereas, Brad graduated from the University of South Carolina Honors College and from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D. C. He practices law with the Williams & Williams firm in Orangeburg and serves in the South Carolina Senate; and

Whereas, Bart earned an associate degree from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia, before he transferred to Clemson University. He returned to the family farm where he followed in his father's footsteps until his sudden and unexpected death on November 8, 2010; and

Whereas, Burt graduated from the University of Virginia and from the School of Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. He serves on the faculty of the University of North Carolina Medical School in Chapel Hill, where he also has a psychiatry practice; and

Whereas, Burt married Angela Ham in 1984, and together they reared three of the Huttos' four grandchildren: David Burton Hutto, Alissa Harriet Marie Hutto, and Cara Leah Charles Hutto. Brad married Tracy Macpherson in 1985, and they reared one son, Skyler Bradley Hutto; and

Whereas, no success on earth authenticates a life as does a marriage that endures the test of time and grows stronger with each passing year, and the Huttos are truly grateful to have enjoyed a wonderful married life; and

Whereas, with their family as the center their lives, Mr. Hutto has learned the veracity of the proverb, "Whoso finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord," and he now considers one of his crowning achievements as having had the good sense to marry his beloved Harriet; and

Whereas, the South Carolina Senate is delighted to honor Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. Hutto on the joyous celebration of their sixtieth wedding anniversary, and the members congratulate them on reaching this auspicious milestone. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate:

That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. Hutto on the occasion of their sixtieth wedding anniversary and extend best wishes for many more years of blessing and fulfillment.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. Hutto.
