65 Years of Marriage and Going Strong

Today the Butler Senior Center was honored to celebrate Stacey and Erma Hutton 65th wedding anniversary.

This celebration was a surprise to the Hutton’s. They went to the Butler Senior Center to have a meatloaf dinner and play in a puzzle tournament. Just a normal day of having lunch at the Butler Senior Center.

The Butler Senior Center could not let this anniversary pass without celebrating Stacey and Erma. 

Stacey has been on the Butler Senior Center board for twenty plus years, he is also Bates County representative on the regional board with Care Connection. 

Stacey and Erma have lived in Butler for many years, raised their family here and owned and operated the Uptown Laundry until they retired and sold their business.

Even being busy business owner the Hutton’s always found time to support and volunteer at the Butler Senior Center.  Erma spent many hours volunteering in the kitchen and making sure everything was clean and ready for the next day after fundraising.

Congratulations to Stacey and Erma Hutton on 65 years of marriage.
