Also inside, Foundation Board member Julie Olsen explains how BTV is helping our employees further their education. Meet Foundation member Hugh Kincaid, and get to know Village CFO Kim Moore. This has been our first year in a while without construction on campus, and we are playing catch up with the entire 44 acres. The horticulture group is working overtime to bring us back up to the BTV standard. I am giving them support to assist with areas of need, and I ask each of you to reach out to me to discuss any issues you may have. June was our first full month of Dining Services being under the BTV umbrella again. Chef Memo and Chef Henry have made vast changes and improvements. A few notable areas include the quality of meat and the salad bar. Daily, I am receiving more compliments regarding dining. Security has always been a top priority at BTV. Fortunately, we haven’t had many issues in the past and we intend to be ahead of the curve. Aaron Kent, our new security supervisor, and Gary Hodges, director of Information Technology, have been instrumental in video surveillance and gate upgrades. I believe we are making great strides that will assist in our Village remaining a safe place. I encourage you to enjoy the rest of the season with the many indoor and outdoor activities we have available for residents. Before we know it, autumn will be breezing its way in and the excitement of fall festivities and a new Razorback football season will be upon us. Quintin Trammell Chief Executive Officer

Gay Harp: No Place Like Home There are few decisions that hold as much importance than that of buying a home. It’s the single largest investment most people will ever make in life. Butterfield resident Gay Harp can honestly say she made the dream of home ownership come true for thousands of Northwest Arkansas residents.
home, or advance into a larger home. It was a pleasure and very rewarding work.” Harp, who is a lauded member of the Altrusa service organization, not only distinguished herself in the mortgage lending industry, but she lead important community service projects that benefited children and students in the region.
Harp, who worked as an abstractor and at the top of the real-estate mortgage loan industry for 40+ years, led the Mortgage Lending Department at the former McIlroy Bank & Trust — Arkansas’ oldest bank — in 1984. She went on to help establish Arvest Mortgage Company, the busy division of one of the largest banks in Arkansas. By the time she retired in 2001, she’d had a hand in financing a majority of the homes in Washington County over the course of her career.
As a result of her hard work, Harp was the first woman to reach several milestones during her career, and was honored more than once as a leading woman in community service.
“Buying a home is a person’s single largest transaction in life,” said Harp, who made Butterfield Trail Village her home in September 2017. “For me, it’s been such a joy to see people get their dream
“I was honored to serve my profession and the community in the ways that I did,” Harp said. “Mostly, I just worked hard and did what I thought was right. Everything else fell into place.”

JULY + AUGUST 2018
Women leading in the workplace is global today, but 20 and 30 years ago, it was different time and place. During her career, however, Gay Harp was humbly breaking the glass ceiling.
STARTING LIFE RIGHT Gay Smith was born in Winslow, south of Fayetteville in southern Washington County. One of four sisters, her parents owned the town mercantile, which sold everything from groceries to dry goods to fertilizer. “I grew up in a small town and it was wonderful,” Harp said. “Winslow is up in the mountains, so it’s cooler there, and people from Ft. Smith who owned summer homes brought their families to live during the summer.” Harp played basketball at Winslow High School, and, upon graduation, moved to Fayetteville to attend Fayetteville Business College. A whiz in accounting (she loved math) and fond of her business law class, she graduated and accepted a position at Bronson Abstract in Fayetteville, an independent, family owned company that started in 1926. At Bronson Abstract, Harp embarked on a successful career in real-estate title insurance, abstracting and loan closing. It was during high school, however, that she met Max Harp at a basketball game. He was on leave from the U.S. Army where he was serving during the Korean War. The couple dated for two years and married in 1957. Their daughter Maxi came along in 1960. Max Harp was a heavy equipment operator before he and Gay went into business buying and leasing tractor-trailer trucks. At a time when city water wasn’t prevalent in many homes, he and Gay invested in washeterias. When the couple saw an increasing need for student housing near the University of Arkansas, they invested in rental properties. “Our careers were complimentary, and we were able to share in business ventures together,” she said. “Max loved to travel, too, and we did a lot of it. In fact, the last trip we took together before he passed away in 2002 was to Alaska.” LEADING LADY At Bronson Abstract, Harp became the first woman in Washington County to obtain a state abstractor’s license – something she then encouraged other women in the industry to do. She was an active member of a number of professional organizations, such as the Arkansas Land Title Insurance Association, where she served as state president from 1978-79; the Metro Area Board of Realtors, and the Mortgage Bankers Association, where she helped organize the first NWA Home Builders Show and the Parade of Homes.
Harp became the first woman to be inducted into the NWA Home Builders Association’s Hall of Fame in 1995. She was also the first woman elected to the Farmington School Board, where she served from 1976 to 1985. In 1984, after 26 years with Bronson Abstract, Harp accepted a position with McIlroy Bank & Trust in Fayetteville to open its mortgage lending department. Two years later in 1986, McIlroy was sold and changed its name to Arvest Bank. At this point in her career, Harp was eyeing retirement. But when she was asked to stay and open Arvest’s new mortgage lending department, she accepted. “Arvest wanted a centralized operation for its mortgage lending departments and moved all of its loan processing work to Lowell at what became Arvest Mortgage Company,” Harp said. “We originated and funded all government home loans at our banks, and they were processed in Lowell then returned to the banks for closing.” Arvest Bank would go on to acquire branches in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri, and by 2006, it was operating more than 200 branches and had grown its assets to more than $7 billion. Volunteering and community service have long been priorities for Harp – she’s been a member of Fayetteville Altrusa for 39 years, serving as president and vice president. BUTTERFIELD LIFE

At Altrusa, Harp was instrumental in a project that established the Fayetteville Public Schools Dental Clinic for students in need; the Builder of Women project at the high school’s West Campus, and the Trade-A-Book initiative. She was also the lead volunteer in Altrusa’s outreach program that brought special sessions of Washington County Drug Court into area middle schools, junior highs and high schools.
“It’s all about releasing the responsibilities I used to have and being in an environment where everything is taken care of,” Harp said of the Butterfield lifestyle. “It’s not hard getting used to.”
In 2004, Harp was named Altrusan of the Year, and in 2012 she received the Lamplighter Award, Altrusa’s highest honor for longtime service.
Ask Harp what she’s most proud of, and she’s quick to say her family. Daughter Maxi Harp Walker, who is a retired buyer for Sam’s Club and Walmart, and her husband, Roy Walker, both live in North Carolina, where Roy owns a consulting firm. While grandson, Spence, is a student at the University of Arkansas – making visits to Granny all the more convenient.
In March 2008, she was one of five Washington County women who Altrusa honored at the 10th Annual Women’s History Month Banquet. Harp along with Ann Henry, Maurice McClelland, Mary Alice Serafini and Ann Sugg were honored as women who’d made exceptional contributions to Washington County. KEEPING IT LIGHT Since she moved to the Village last year, Harp has indulged in relaxing and letting go. With no lawn maintenance or major home repairs, frontdoor transportation to area performing arts and Razorback sports events, and chef-prepared meals in the BTV Dining Room, Bistro or Lodge, it’s been easy, she says.

JULY + AUGUST 2018
Although she no longer holds any board positions, Harp is still active in Altrusa and the Maple Hills Garden Club in Fayetteville. She’s a longtime member of Blackburn Covenant Community Church.
Harp is a tried and true Hog fan who’s been a member of the Razorback Foundation since 1979. She thoroughly enjoys her front-row seats behind the players at football games, and she attends basketball games too. In step with keeping things light, she’s a big fan of gathering with friends and neighbors at the Village to play games. That’s right. Mexican Train, DoubleSix dominos, Mah Jongg. Harp even organized a BTV women’s group that plays Double-Six every week. “Yes, I really enjoy playing games,” she said with a chuckle. “I’m so tickled that I can walk out my front door and have all these games to play with friends and neighbors. I may just quit everything else.”

OLLI Students Visit Rome Educational Tour Featured Strolls of the Eternal City Students from the University of Arkansas’ Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) recently returned from an eight-day educational tour of Rome, Italy. The trip, which was organized by the UA’s Rome Center and the Office for Study Abroad and International Exchange, was the first of its kind for OLLI and marked the institute’s 10th anniversary. “It was a pleasure to help host the OLLI students in Rome,” said Rome Center Director Davide Vitali. “We were thrilled to be able to provide tailored educational and cultural experiences… and see (students) experience a new culture, language and environment.”
OLLI students visited many of the city’s historically significant sites, such as the Roman Forum, Pantheon, Colosseum and Vatican, in addition to taking daily walks through Rome’s diverse neighborhoods.
“I will be eternally grateful for this unique opportunity to be included in a trip where I learned more than I deserved, not only about the history of Rome, but about myself,”
OLLI is a lifelong learning association that provides high-quality, affordable educational programs to mainly older adults.
The itinerary also included a trip east of Rome to Villa d’Este and the celebrated Renaissance Gardens of Tivoli – one of the wonders of the landscaping and engineering world. Tivoli’s gardens are renowned for their fantastic fountains including the magnificent Tivoli Water Organ – Martha DeVault that plays musical tones as water is forced through the stone pipes of an organ. The Garden’s fountains are a unique engineering masterpiece since no mechanisms or assistance are used, only the power of gravity drives the numerous fountains.
UA Geosciences Professor Tom Paradise, an OLLI charter instructor, designed the extensive trip itinerary, and guided students during the visit of the Eternal City.
“Having lived, worked and conducted research in Rome over the years, this was a rare and fun opportunity to share my experiences,” Paradise said. “The trip focused on strolling tours of famous and unusual architecture and art, Rome’s cuisines and 12 BUTTERFIELD LIFE
secret spots. There were lots of laughs and tons of learning.”

New Georgia O’Keeffe Exhibition On View at Crystal Bridges There is always something magnificent to see during a visit to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, and right now, it’s the highly-anticipated summer blockbuster exhibition The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art. This special exhibition features works by the mother of American Modernism herself, as well as a new generation of American artists expanding on O’Keeffe’s legacy. The Beyond is on display through Sept. 3, 2018. O’Keeffe’s work has captivated viewers and artists for generations, and it’s easy to see why with the enormous flowers, luscious colors, landscapes, feminine forms and still lifes that are her signature themes. This unique exhibition was developed by Crystal Bridges and brings together more than 30 of O’Keeffe’s paintings, plus the work of emerging artists focusing on similar subjects. Featuring paintings, sculptures, works on paper, photographs, site-specific installations, murals and more, The Beyond includes the museum’s existing collection of paintings by O’Keeffe including the familiar Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1, Radiator Building–Night, New York and Flying Backbone. The new generation of select artists introduced in this collection include Sharona Eliassaf, Monica Kim Garza, Loie Hollowell, Molly Larkey, Matthew Ronay, Anna Valdez, Kim Keever and more. Some of O’Keeffe’s most lauded work features themes that are also prominent in the work of this group, including flowers, feminine forms, city and desert landscapes, and the delicate relationship between abstraction and realism. On your visit the museum, don’t forget to stop by the gift shop, grab a bite to eat at the restaurant Eleven, or take a stroll through the beautiful, shaded walking trails.

Summer Book Potpourri The Butterfield Library has a variety of newly acquired titles to enjoy this summer. If you haven’t been in a while, the library is open 24 hours a day, and there is no time limit on when books must be returned. Here’s a sampling of the latest titles:
Lincoln’s Last Trial by Dan Abrams and David Fisher is an account of Lincoln as a defense attorney in a notorious case that plays out on the eve of his presidency — and in which Lincoln brilliantly gets his client exonerated.
The Outsider by Stephen King asks whether a Little League coach and schoolteacher is a gravedisturbing pedophile murderer.
The Art of the Wasted Day by Patricia Hampl considers some of history’s great day dreamers and quietly reflective individuals, including the author.
Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts recounts a mass killing in a mall, tracing the life of three survivors. It seems everyone has gotten over it, but one of the undetected partners in the crime.
Houseplants for a Healthy Home by Jon VanZile is an A-to-Z guide of 50 common houseplants – along with detailed care instructions and beautiful illustrations of each. Houseplants offer so much more than just visual interest to a room: they can purify the air, reduce stress and even improve sleep.
Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction by the late, famously reclusive J.D. Salinger is about a family gathering to celebrate a marriage that everyone suspects will turn out badly, but no one feels right about stopping. President Bill Clinton and thrill writer James Patterson co-authored The President is Missing. Fear and uncertainty grip Washington as enemies plan an attack of unprecedented scale on America. Amid whispers of cyberterror and espionage, the President himself becomes a suspect, and then goes missing. 18 BUTTERFIELD LIFE

Interval Training Yields Fantastic Results By Jennifer Neill, Fitness and Wellness Director We all know that being excessively sedentary can harm your health and increase your chances of dementia, depression and anxiety. An increasingly popular way to exercise and help maintain an active lifestyle is called interval training. If you’ve never heard of interval training, it is bursts of high intensity work followed by a recovery period. Some of the benefits of interval training are improved blood pressure, insulin sensitivity, cholesterol profiles and cardiovascular health, and decreased abdominal fat and body weight (while maintaining muscle mass). These benefits occur in regular exercise but are more pronounced in interval training. Interval training boosts the metabolism and can produce results in a much shorter time than steady state or continuous exercise. However, what it does for your cells and brain is the more powerful part. Researchers have found that interval exercise can improve health and fitness for almost everyone – and may even have bigger benefits for older adults. Researchers at Mayo Clinic studied people over age 65 doing interval training and found that age-related deterioration of muscle had actually been reversed. The workout appeared to change a cell’s DNA in a way that increased the muscles ability to produce energy and triggered the growth of new muscle. It may even protect cells from aging. 22 BUTTERFIELD LIFE

These promising results prompted us to find way to add interval training to our exercise programs here at Butterfield. At first I was concerned with the stress within the body that comes with interval training since you must work at very high intensity, while avoiding too much strain on your joints. The solution, BTV’s Aquatic Center pool! Now, interval training is a part of every water aerobics class, and the results have been fantastic! The water guards against too much strain on your joints, yet allows for exercise at a high intensity. We have also added a variation of interval training to our chair aerobics classes and our summer hiking/ walking programs. If you want to try interval training in the pool, bring a stop watch. Run as hard and fast as you can for 30 seconds and recover for 30 more. One thing to keep in mind is that you need to be winded by the end of the 30 seconds, or you are not pushing yourself hard enough. In the gym, you might want to try the same technique on a stationary bike. While hiking you can try it by pushing yourself to walk very quickly for 30 seconds then slow for 30 more. Please note that if you plan to add interval training to your workout, consult with our fitness staff first, and always listen to your body.
