Police, DPS, firefighters, EMS, ATF and two sheriff's departments, all in one room to be honored. It was the 9th annual appreciation dinner, hosted by the Greater Tyler Association of Realtors. The group thought this was a great way to show our public servants how much they are appreciated for their dedication to the community. Those honored say it means a lot to them. Clint Tyra with the Dixie Fire Department, "We need to know that people care. We don't see it everyday, we get there and everybody's hurting. We don't hear 'thank you' a lot and this helps a lot."
