Firefighters Tie the Knot

Selket Gregory, the city's first female firefighter, traded in her turnout gear for a bridal gown Thursday for her marriage to Firefighter David Damon.

A throng of well-wishers crowded City Hall Library for the ceremony, which was performed by Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs.

Robinson-Briggs, the city's first female mayor, had sworn in both firefighters when they joined the Fire Division in 2007. The couple took part in fire academy training together when the opportunity arose after four years of waiting. The new Mrs. Damon had served in the U.S. Marine Corps and her husband was a teacher before they joined the Fire Division.

Now they can mark a new first - the first married couple to serve in the Plainfield Fire Division!

Congratulations from Plaintalker!

Congratulations to the new married couple, Mr. and Mrs. Damon.

May laughs and giggles be always part of your day!

A good sense of humor, a daily good laugh, and easy to come giggles, are often what makes marriages last a lifetime!
