Church Read Aloud Sessions

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Boys and girls from the Christian Love Baptist Church Summer Reading Program had a special guest on Wednesday.

Alexandria Fire Station Number Four Chief Bernard Wesley read "A Day At The Fire Station" to the campers.

Campers also learned how fire fighters prepare on a day to day basis should a fire occur.

Chief Wesley says reading to the children of Christian Love Baptist Church was educational for the kids and enjoyable for him.

"Of course when they see me as a Fire Chief, they see the uniform and I come and read to them, and then they say, hey I can do that too. That's another thing that makes it so great. Being a role model, I love that," said Chief Bernard Wesley.

Read aloud sessions at the Christian Love Baptist Church will occur daily throughout the course of the summer.
