Hardin 50th Anniversary

Charles Pete Hardin Sr. and Barbara Taylor Hardin of Salisbury celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Saturday, Dec. 17, 2011, at the Salisbury Civic Center with family and friends.
The Rev. Dr. Nilous Avery II of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church officiated the renewing of vows followed by a reception. The Hardin sons and grandsons served as Ushers. Grandsons Derek Hardin of Odenton, Md., and Gregory Hardin Jr. of Winston-Salem lit the candles.
Delores Pullium of Greensboro served as Matron of Honor, and Norris Currence of Salisbury served as Best Man. Chelsea Seamon of Eatontown, N.J., served as Flower Girl, and Nathan Vincent of Mint Hill served as Ring Bearer. Henderson Stout of Salisbury did a solo tribute to the honorees.
Trinity Callahan of Winston-Salem and Trinity Stewart of Neptune, N.J., served as Program Attendees. Janet Credle of Neptune City and Sharon Leach of Salisbury were Guest Registrars.
Deacon Guy Credle of Neptune City blessed the food as dinner was served, with the Hardin grandchildren assisting. A “50-years of Marriage” video was shown as everyone enjoyed dinner, and Rev. Mary S. Hardin, the groom’s sister, read the Fifty Year Marriage History.
The Hardins were married Dec. 23, 1961, in York, S.C., by Judge Nunn. Norris Currence was the Best Man 50 years ago as well. Their union was blessed with five children: Charles Jr. (Lori) of Odenton, Md., Michael of Sudbury, U.K., Jacqueline of Salisbury, Gregory of Clarksville, Tenn., and Kenneth (Alib) of Salisbury. They have 15 beautiful grandchildren, 12 boys and three girls, and have one great-grandson.
A pre-anniversary dinner was given by Mr. and Mrs. Guy Credle and Mrs. Lori Hardin at the honorees’ home for out-of-town guests, family and the wedding party the night before the celebration.
Charles retired from Hoechst Celanese after 30 years as a training instructor. He is now a driver with Rowan Transit System. Barbara is employed with Fisher Athletics.
Charles and Barbara have enjoyed their togetherness for 50-plus years. She is a member of Cornerstone Church, and he is a member of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church.
Barbara is the daughter of the late Lee O. Taylor of Salisbury and Verna Taylor Holman of Neptune. Charles is the son of the late Pete and Ogradus Hardin of Salisbury. They enjoy traveling stateside and abroad and plan an anniversary trip for this summer.
