Boone County Honors Dale Appel for 50 Years of Service

At the April 18, 2017 meeting of the Boone County Fiscal Court, Judge/Executive Gary Moore and the County Commissioners honored Captain Dale Appel on the occassion of his retirement after 50 years of service to the Boone County Water Rescue Team.

Captain Appel formed the team fifty years ago and has served as its leader for most of its existence. Boone County Water Rescue is a regional resource comprised entirely of volunteer professionals who patrol the waterways, perform rescue operations and retrieve items lost in the water. They have provided service to jurisdictions across the Commonwealth and region and have been recognized on numerous occassions for their professionalism and expertise.

Captain Appel leaves the team in good hands, but his vision, leadership and dedication will be sorely missed.
