PLANTERSVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - After many years of business and contribution to Plantersville, a local man has once again given back to his community as part of his retirement.

A retirement reception was held Tuesday night to honor Walter Fleishhacker.

It was during this event that a $25,000 check, his land and the building that housed his former business, were donated to city officials. 

Fleishhacker opened Northeast Metals Processors in Plantersville in 1974. 

Unfortunately, the honoree was unable to attend the reception.

Instead, Fleishhacker's daughter accepted his award from the city on his behalf and gave officials the keys to the building. 

At this time, city officials do not know what they are going to do with the generous donation.
