Mike CookOn May 16, Mike Cook was celebrated with a Community Citizenship Award for over 40 years of service as a volunteer firefighter. Presented annually by the Charlotte Grange, the award honors the dedicated individuals who give their time and energy to the Town of Charlotte.

Cook’s grateful colleagues from Charlotte Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service packed the Grange Hall and surprised him with a certificate, engraved paperweight and deep appreciation for all that he does.

Assistant Fire Chief Rob Mullin said, “Mike’s a great guy. He’s always been here and we hope he sticks around for many years to come.”
