On October 23, 2020, students and faculty at Daniel Boone Elementary in New Melle recognized Mr. Rick Massey, former New Melle Fire Chief, for his many years serving the community and in particular, the school.
Everyone waived and cheered (while social distanced, of course) as he was driven through school parking lot in a fire truck one last time. During the parade the teachers also presented Chief Massey with hand-written notes of appreciation from each student.
The school’s Facebook posting said, “Thanks for all of the wonderful support you have given DB and our community over the years! Enjoy retirement! You deserve it!! #HonoraryRaccoonForever"
