SHEPHERDSVILLE - Masons from throughout the county gathered recently as the Bullitt County Scottish Rite held its annual dinner and recognition.
As part of the annual dinner, the organization honored its Mason of the Year and its Outstanding Citizen.
Robert L. Dadisman was selected as the Outstanding Mason and Larry Carr was selected as the Outstanding Citizen.
In addition, the McNeil Lodge 586 in Lebanon Junction was selected as the Outstanding Lodge of the year.
As the second member of Shepherdsville Christian Church to earn the honor as Outstanding Citizen, Carr said he was in good company.
The late Jerry Thomson was a previous winner and a longtime member of Shepherdsville Christian.
A large number of church members were present to honor Carr.
Carr retired from Louisville Gas & Electric as a dispatcher of electrical energy. He served as an elder at his church and taught Sunday School.
In nominating Carr for the honor, it was noted that he was a person who was always there to help. When the recent windstorms hit, he was there with his chainsaw to help others.
He has also been part of the Habitat for Humanity project and went on mission trips with the church.
Carr, who is a member of the Central City Masonic Lodge, said public speaking was out of his comfort zone.
He thanked those in attendance for the honor.
Another man who doesn’t do a lot of public speaking is Dadisman.
The member of Salt River Masonic Lodge for the past 33years retired from Worthington Steel.
Scottish Rite president Darrell Vires said Dadisman could be found at just about every event held by the Salt River lodge.
He is especially active at the fish frys and helps to organize the Mount Washington fall festival.
He is a member of the Scottish Rite and the Kosair Shrine Temple.
Viers said whenever something needs to be done, Dadisman is there.
The member of Kings Baptist Church thanked all for the recognition.
The annual gathering at Bullitt Masonic Lodge 150 in Shepherdsville included members of various lodges throughout the county.
Keith Davis, superintendent of the Bullitt County Public School System, was the guest speaker.
