John Linthicum, the managing broker at the Crye-Leike office in Bartlett, along with the Realtors and staff in his office, hosted a luncheon on Sept. 20 for the Bartlett Police, Fire and EMTs to honor the dedication of public safety members and all those who sacrifice and work tirelessly to protect the safety of the City of Bartlett.

“We are so honored to have been able to show a small token of our appreciation to the men and women who thanklessly serve our city,” said Brian “BJ” Bennett, Realtor associate.

Laura Gaither, Realtor associate, said, “It is such a blessing to live in a community where we can count on our first responders in every aspect. They are not only there to react to a crisis, but to educate and be a familiar part of our city.

Rita Hallum, Realtor associate, said, “This year some of the Bartlett Police used their own money to purchase pink badges to support breast cancer awareness month.  This is just one of the many reasons why we love our Bartlett First Responders and the difference they make in our community every day!”
