The New Melle FPD firefighters (paid and volunteer) have a private account, the Firefighters Fund, which is funded from time to time with donations from the public or from small fundraisers of their own. This account is in no way funded from any tax dollars.
The month of February was a busy month for New Melle Dental. February is National Dental Health Month and Dr. E. Paul Moore was involved with his 30th year of teaching the 2nd grade classes at Daniel Boone Elementary. He demonstrated the proper way to care for their teeth and showed the children many things they would encounter in a dental office.
“I’ve always enjoyed teaching the students at Daniel Boone and I have been involved for so long that I’m treating kids of previous 2nd graders!” he said.
HONDURAS MISSION TRIP
Also in February, Dr. Moore completed his eighth mission trip to Honduras to provide needed dental care for the people of the village of Talanga.
He said, “The Honduran people are so poor they can’t afford dental care, nor do they have have access to dental care, so this is a chance to give back.”
