Gloucester Fire Captain Dominic Barbagallo helps first-grader Sadie Franklin off a fire truck as she and her classmate Cameron Oliveira arrive Friday morning at Veterans Memorial School. Sadie won the prize of getting chauffered to school on a fire truck when her family won a raffle at the PTO's Halloween Hop in late October. Fire fighters picked Sadie, Cameron and his brother Joseph up at her home Friday morning and drove them around the neighborhood before arriving at the school with the siren sounding. When asked afterward what she thought of the experience, Sadie said, "I liked it a lot."
