Benefit planned for retired firefighter

A benefit for retired El Dorado Hills Fire District Engineer Mike Logan will be held on Jan. 21 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Station 85 at the intersection of Wilson and El Dorado Hills Boulevards.

The El Dorado Hills Fire District will host a spaghetti feed on Jan. 21 to benefit retired engineer Mike Logan, whose cancer has returned after being in remission since 2000.

Logan was diagnosed with job-related Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1999, according to Fire Chief Dave Roberts. He returned to duty the following year, and ultimately retired in 2007 after 30 years on the line — five years in Placerville and the last 25 in El Dorado Hills.

“With the support of his friends and family, Mike will beat it again,” said Roberts.

Tickets for the dinner are priced at $10 for adults and $5 for children, with a bake sale and silent auction to follow.

For a price, firefighters, friends, family and local celebrities have agreed to bare their cranium to support Logan, and heartily invite the public to get into the act. Volunteer head-shavers from World Famous Barber Jon’s and Supercuts will be present and ready to buzz all comers.

Firefighter and event coordinator Casey Owens confirmed that Logan’s situation strikes home with today’s firefighters. “Mike’s from a generation that got exposed to a lot more stuff than we do now,” he said.

The benefit will be held at Station 85, at the corner of Wilson and El Dorado Hills boulevards. Tickets are available at the door. Food will be served between 4 and 8 p.m. All proceeds will go to Logan.
