    Their mission was to construct a new place of worship.

    The Shepherdsville congregation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses had outgrown their space on Highway 44 East and needed a new place to worship.

    Once the location on the Charles Hamilton Highway was found, it was time to build.

    Over the course of several weeks, over 1,000 volunteers worked to build the new kingdom hall.

    “It is wonderful,” said Joe Hurst, who coordinated the effort.

  • Cardinal Dodge and Bullitt Central FFA Chapter announced that the two organizations raised more than $1,750 in scholarship and operational funds through the Hometown Scholarship Program.

    Through the program Bullitt Central FFA members accepted suggested donations of $5.00 from Shepherdsville community members.

    The donors were then invited to visit the dealership for a t-shirt as well a chance to win an all-new 2009 Dodge Ram truck.

    The donated funds are earmarked for FFA scholarships and the FFA’s treasury for operational and leadership needs.
