Ride in police car a real treat

Gavin Levesque, far left, who won a ride to school in a police car at the 12th Annual Dracut Old Home Day knew just the person he wanted to come along with him — his 15-year-old sister, Aimee, who wants to become a police officer herself one day.

Officer Kerrie Bushnell, behind Gavin, picked them up on Friday, Sept. 21, and treated Gavin and Aimee to breakfast at Dunkin Donuts. She then drove Aimee and Gavin to the Greater Lowell Tech, where Aimee is a sophomore. Then it was off to the Brookside Elementary where Gavin is a first-grade student. He surprised his teacher Jennifer Peaslee and his classmates with a meet-and-greet with Officer Bushnell.
