It must be Christmas time. Everyone is spreading some good cheer around the Southcoast. Even my good friend, Nick Charpentier. He loves to read to the elementary school children around this time, in fact, he looks forward to it each and every year. Just look at that smile while standing next to everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf!

Firefighter/EMT Nick Charpentier was a guest reader at the "Pajama Drive Fundraiser" held at the Acushnet Elementary School on Friday, December 15th. Firefighter Nick read to the Kindergarten and 5th grade classes and got to hang out with Officer Derek Cathcart, Superintendent Mike Shea, Library Director Dina Brasseur and of course, Olaf. Apparently the Acushnet Fire Department offered Olaf a position on the FIRE Department, but he declined.
