To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 3610), requesting the Natural Resources Board to name the game sanctuary that encompasses Tawcaw Creek, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
HARVEY S. PEELER, JR., for Committee.
REQUESTING THE NATURAL RESOURCES BOARD TO NAME THE GAME SANCTUARY THAT ENCOMPASSES TAWCAW CREEK IN CLARENDON COUNTY THE "GARTH H. MCMASTERS GAME SANCTUARY" AND TO ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS TO THAT EFFECT.
Whereas, Garth Harold McMasters of Clarendon County died on February 19, 1997; and
Whereas, Mr. McMasters was a retired sales engineer for Murray Cotton Gin in Dallas, Texas, a former Mason, a devoted churchman, and former president and associate of C.A. Harvin Ginnery, Inc., in Summerton; he was named Ginner of the Year, 1974-75, in the Southeast; and
Whereas, he was a "sportsman's sportsman" and a beloved community leader; and
Whereas, he was an outstanding individual who earned the respect and admiration of all who knew him; he was an important member of his community who gave freely of his time, energy, and talents for the benefit of others; and it would be entirely fitting and appropriate to honor the memory of such a fine man in a special way. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, requests the Natural Resources Board to name the game sanctuary that encompasses Tawcaw Creek in Clarendon County the "Garth H. McMasters Game Sanctuary" and to erect appropriate markers or signs to that effect.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Natural Resources Board, the family of Mr. McMasters, Mr. Gene Davis of Lee County and Mrs. C. A. Harvin, Jr., of Summerton.
