El Dorado Fire Marshal Joe Haag and fiancé Kristi Cooper were joined in holy matrimony today.

Family and friends gathered to help them celebrate this special day. The Civic Center was transformed into a rustic country setting.

Mason jars were placed at each table setting. Wagon wheels, baling string wrapped wine bottles, and an alter that was decorated beautifully.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Haag!

ONE OF A KIND Kitchen Table

Innovation, Caring, Contribution, Creativity, Generosity, & Pride – he embodies them all.

TableHis name is Firefighter Caleb Carson.

Caleb’s latest extra special project is a new kitchen table for fire station 2.

For the past months Caleb worked on this project. It hit a little slow down during the time Caleb was taking Advanced Emergency Medical Technician training, but he juggled the project simultaneously with the medical training. And it is finally finished.

Table 2The heavy duty table started out as 2 x 6 lumber that was trimmed down, glued, sanded, and varnished. Two custom El Dorado Maltese crosses – one on each side – were sculpted by Caleb’s father.

And then there’s the really cool features. Two retired air packs sit under the table angled towards the table’s center.

This is just one of many special projects this young man has made for the department. El Dorado has some mighty special firefighters.
