During the July 11, 2013 session, Erie County Legislator Joseph Lorigo presented a proclamation to Carl P. Dimmig Sr. of West Seneca in recognition of his more than 75 years with the Boy Scouts organization. Joining as a member in 1937, Dimmig has been very involved with several local troops and has held numerous leadership roles.

 

“Mr. Dimmig’s longevity with the Boy Scouts is quite amazing. It is not too often you see this level of commitment and dedication, and his accomplishment is deserving of recognition. As an invested member of not only the Boy Scouts but the entire community, Mr. Dimmig has helped shape the lives of many young people, providing them great opportunities. I want to thank him and his wife, Ruth, for their volunteerism,” said Legislator Lorigo.

 

During his more than 75 years with the Boy Scouts, Dimmig has served as a Senior Patrol Leader and Scoutmaster and was credited with founding Troop 517 in West Seneca, as well as an Explorer Post. The only hiatus he took from working with the Scouts was during the early 1940s when he joined the armed forces to serve his country.
