Past Presidents and Schultz honored by Darke Co. Shrine Club

GREENVILLE – The Darke County Shrine Club honored several of its members at its July meeting. Past Presidents were recognized for their role in making the Darke County Shrine Club one of the finest in the Antioch Temple. Scott Lipps, second vice president for the Antioch Shrine Temple, said, “This is a fine group of Masons and Shriners. Without this group, we wouldn’t have the Shrine Club we have today.”

Past Presidents recognized were Marvin Lindemuth, 1963; Bob Anthony, 1982; Lowell Dill, 1989; Norman Redman, 1994; Brad Dill, 1996; Larry Beck, 2000; Art Beck, 2002; Richard Rhoades, 2006; Dale Drew, 2008 and 2010; and Gene Schultz, 2011.

Gene Schultz was also recognized for 26 years as Transportation Director. He will be retiring from that position on Aug. 1. Since 1986, Schultz has been transporting children to Shriner’s Hospitals. From Chicago to Cincinnati to Lexington, he has logged over 200,000 miles and has helped transport over 300 children. Many of the children were transported multiple times.

Schultz recalls using his personal vehicle for the first four years. He paid for the gas and upkeep on his vehicle until the club purchased a van to transport the children.

Although he is stepping down from transporting children, Schultz wants to remain active in the process. He noted he would be willing to take applications for children who need assistance.
Honored for their work in the Antioch Shrine were Marvin Lindemuth, Bob Anthony, Lowell Dill, Norman Redman, Brad Dill, Larry Beck, Art Beck, Richard Rhoades, Dale Drew, and Gene Schultz.

 Gene Schultz accepts a certificate of appreciation for his role as transportation director from Keith Hocker, secretary, and Bob Gray, president.
