E.C. Barton & Company Hosts Cookout for Military Weekend Warrior Lynn Black

Christie Miller | June 19, 2018

E.C. Barton & Company are proud supporters of the United States Armed Forces and their families on the Homefront. Our company can provide quality products and services every day thanks to their sacrifices. One of the biggest sacrifices made by these families is the requirement to move from station to station. Making a house a home becomes difficult, and updating homes even more so.  The partners at E.C. Barton & Co. are now giving back to our military families by providing a military discount to all members and helping one special military family to make their DIY dreams a reality.

E.C. Barton & Co. is proud to announce the Military Weekend Warrior Project. This project will focus around a great couple, Ryan & Lynn Black, as they update their 1980’s home to a modern, farmhouse feel. Ryan is a member of the United States Coast Guard, where he is a Damage Controlman 1st Class. Lynn runs a freelance digital marketing company from home, which they share with their adorable two dogs, Gus & Kona.  Lynn has previously worked with E.C. Barton & Co. and is considered a member of the partner family!

Over the next year, Ryan and Lynn will tackle the DIY projects throughout the home to update the look and feel. Projects will include:

  • Cabinetry DIY
  • Laundry Room Makeover
  • Hardwood Flooring Installation
  • Design Updates
  • Door Replacement
  • Window Replacement
  • And More!

Recently, E.C. Barton & Co. was happy to have Lynn visit the Jonesboro Corporate Office, where the team discussed the project, products and timeframes for production. Many of our partners were able to meet Lynn in the office and in our local Surplus Warehouse and Barton’s stores. While she was in town, many partners took the time to enjoy a meet & greet BBQ in the courtyard of the Corporate Office. A big hank you to our partner Lee Quessenberry for providing the world-famous Quessenburgers, featuring his Rub Beautiful product.

Production is set to begin in early June, with videos being posted shortly thereafter. The E.C. Barton team will be distributing these videos across multiple channels and encourage all partners to do the same.

Providing our brave men and women in uniform with the best quality products for renovation and construction is the least that our partners can do. We welcome all partners to contribute to our military community in any way possible through local events in each store’s area.
