From the CEO Spring is the best time of the year — people feel invigorated by the warmer weather and the rebirth of green color across the landscape. After a relatively mild winter, the change in seasons isn’t as dramatic as last year, but it is good, nonetheless, to anticipate the sunshine and pleasant temperatures. The year has started on a positive note for Butterfield Trail Village as all our departments are busy serving Village residents, and staff are working hard to accomplish our organization’s goals and meet strategic demands. As we celebrate BTV’s 34th anniversary in March, I am encouraged that we have evolved to meet the changing needs of residents now and for generations to come. When I took the helm as CEO in 2014, BTV was already well-established as NWA’s leading active-living retirement community, and we’re proud to retain that distinction today. At Butterfield, we recognize that today’s retiree is searching for new and enriching pursuits. We have a long tradition of serving our residents, while also committing to growth and innovation, so that in another 34 years from now, residents will still be choosing Butterfield. This issue of the magazine features Dr. Morriss and Ann Henry, a Butterfield couple who are living their best lives at the Village, while staying active in their community and spending quality time with family and friends. The Henrys are both second-generation BTV residents who are creating a legacy at the Village by following in their parents’ footsteps in retirement. We think the Henrys’ story will resonate with many of our residents and their families. Please take a moment to celebrate Butterfield’s 34th anniversary on March 10 and recognize all the benefits we enjoy at the Village today.

Dr. Morriss and Ann Henry Second-Generation Residents Have Special Connection to Butterfield To say Butterfield residents Ann and Dr. Morriss Henry are pillars of the community is an understatement. Anyone who knows this Fayetteville golden couple, each with outstanding careers and records of service, knows they’ve actively supported their community and served as a source of inspiration to friends, colleagues and family for more than 40 years. As a pioneering ophthalmologist, Morriss Henry was a principal at the Henry Eye Clinic in Northwest Arkansas from 1961 to 2017 – and one of the first eye surgeons in the state to operate using lasers. Ann is a former educator, associate professor and faculty chair at the University of Arkansas who, like her husband, has a distinguished record of service. Since moving to the Village in July 2019, Ann and Morriss have been actively supporting key initiatives in Northwest Arkansas. Morriss is behind the establishment of a medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Centers (UAMS) in Fayetteville, and both are helping with the $23 million capital campaign to fund the new expansion project at the Fayetteville Public Library. 6 BUTTERFIELD LIFE
MARCH + APRIL 2020
“Morriss and I are honorary co-chairs of the library expansion campaign along with Jim and Nancy Blair,” said Ann, who was the volunteer fundraiser for the existing library. The new expansion and renovation is especially important since it has the potential to impact such a large cross section of the community. “Libraries are open to everyone,” Ann said. “With the programs they offer and the opportunities they create, especially for children, libraries have the power to transform lives.” Ann is presently on the BTV Board of Directors representing Central United Methodist Church, while Morriss is a former board member for the church. At Butterfield, Ann and Morriss represent a growing trend not only in Northwest Arkansas but at retirement communities across the country: they are second-generation residents whose parents lived at BTV before them. As BTV celebrates its 34th anniversary in March, second-generation residents like the Henrys are becoming more and more common.
“It’s a huge compliment to Butterfield,” CEO/ President Quintin Trammell said. “More and more residents are following in their parents’ footsteps in retirement and it’s a direct affirmation of our quality of life.” THE EYES HAVE IT Ann and Morriss have deep roots in Northwest Arkansas, extending in many different directions. With Ann the self-described “talker” of the pair, and Morriss the “encourager,” the Henrys are two very independent people who’ve chosen to walk the path of life together. Born in Oklahoma, Ann Rainwater was a quintessential Springdale, Ark., girl: she worked at the Welch’s Grape Juice plant in town one summer, and was a waitress in high school and in college at the original AQ Chicken House. After earning a degree in education at the University of Arkansas, Ann taught school in Missouri before returning to the UA to earn her master’s degree. Meanwhile, Morriss, a Fort Smith High School alum who graduated from Hendrix College, followed in both of his parents’ footsteps and became an ophthalmologist. He earned his medical degree from the University of Tennessee Medical School like his father, mother and grandfather before him. After medical school and a residency at Harvard in ophthalmology, Morriss served as a captain in the Air Force and chief of a military eye clinic in Bitburg, Germany, from 1959 to 1961. Later, after he returned home to NWA, he was the doctor Ann Rainwater saw to have her eyes checked before she left for the summer.
The Henrys both graduated from the UA law school in 1971.
“My sights weren’t on getting married at the time,” Ann remembered with a laugh. “So when Morriss came along, it was a surprise. I’d been waiting for someone who shared the same values I did, and he did. I remember I went home that day and immediately told my mom, ‘I’ve just met my future husband.’ He just didn’t know it yet.” MAKING AN IMPACT Ann and Morriss married on August 1, 1964. He was already enrolled in law school at the UA in 1961 and he encouraged Ann to do the same. She was one of two women enrolled at the UA School of Law. Over the next seven years, Ann had the couple’s three children while going to school part-time. In May of 1971, Ann and Morriss both received their Juris Doctorate degrees at commencement ceremonies attended by their children. Ann practiced for about a year before returning home to care for Paul, Kathy and Mark. She volunteered at their elementary school, was a Girl and Boy Scout troop leader, and was involved in church. Today, Paul Henry is an ophthalmologist at Henry Eye Clinic. Daughter Katherine Henry Baltz and her husband Tracy Baltz are both ophthalmologists in Little Rock, and son Mark Henry is a lawyer in Fayetteville. The Henrys have eight wonderful grandchildren aged 14-22.

Back in 1976, Ann joined the UA’s business college as a part-time instructor. Taking an upward track, Ann became an associate professor, an assistant and an associate dean, and was elected faculty chair in 1989, before returning to the classroom for another ten years until her retirement in 1999.

Over the years, Ann has been appointed to serve on a number of state boards and commissions. Locally, she served on the Fayetteville City Board of Directors twice, taught Sunday School at Central United Methodist Church for many years, sang in the choir there, and was the first female lay reader at the church.
After Louise Henry died, Murphey Henry retired in Fayetteville, and was one of first residents to move to Butterfield after it opened on March 10, 1986. The transition had a few bumps, but Murphey Henry enjoyed socializing with friends in the men’s coffee group on campus – much like the men’s coffee klatch at the BTV Bistro that Morriss is part of today.
Ann was on the board of directors at Arvest Bank for 30 years and involved with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute advisory board from “My dad was a history major 2011 to 2019. Ann and Morriss at Washington and Lee both were longtime board University and served in members for The Nature World War I and II,” Morriss Ann and her mother Opal Rainwater Conservancy of Arkansas. said. “His experiences helped shape my life.

BTV was 10 minutes from Morriss and established the state’s Area Health Education and Ann’s home in Fayetteville, Centers. Morriss was also an adjunct professor at the University of Arkansas at Medical Sciences (UAMS) “My father had worked in Little Rock from 1961 to 1972. He is the founding for the Methodist chairman and a lifetime member of the UAMS church, and he loved Northwest Advisory Board Council. being in the BTV Play Readers Theatre,” Ann Thanks to the leadership of Morriss and other BTV said. “After he died, my residents who are on the UAMS advisory board, mother had three very Butterfield and UAMS formed a partnership that close friends who lived resulted in the establishment of the UAMS at BTV at BTV.

Ron Hanson Leads as Residents Council President Active Council Serves as Voice of Village Residents Ron Hanson aims to build on some of the recent successes of Butterfield’s Residents Association Council in his role as president of the campus body that serves as the voice of Village residents. His term as president of the Residents Association Council began in January. He previously served as vice president. The Residents Council oversees BTV’s Residents Association, a large committee-based body that surveys residents on important issues like health care services, dining and maintenance on campus – and then conveys the information to administration. The Residents Council is made up of 11 members, including Hanson as president, who’ve been elected to serve by their peers. Hanson, who moved to BTV with his wife Polly in 2014, takes pride in the commitment to serve as council president. “I was drawn to serve in order to continue the Council’s tradition of providing a direct conduit between Village residents and the BTV administration,” he said. “We have a process in place to communicate residents’ interests and concerns, and it’s a process that works well. Our Council officers meet every month with CEO Quintin Trammell, and the Council meets quarterly with the BTV Board of Directors.” The Residents Association Council holds monthly resident forum meetings across the BTV campus, utilizing 35-40 volunteer committee members who help plan the meetings, then gather and relay info from residents to BTV administration. These resident forums are well attended and of great interest to Butterfield’s 400+ residents. Last year, as vice president, Hanson saw a number of successes, including the passing of a Resident Bill of Rights, dining service improvements and

the formation of a residents horticulture/grounds committee. He is especially proud of the council’s annual BTV Christmas Purse program that funds holiday bonuses for eligible Butterfield employees. “This is a voluntary donation by residents for employees at Christmas, and it really exemplifies how much our population cares for staff and employees here like they are family,” he said. Hanson has set a number of goals for 2020 at the helm of the council. They include more revisions to the Resident Bill of Rights, continued improvements to the grounds, and increasing health care options for residents through University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Northwest. He invites residents to attend the monthly forums, or to watch them on the BTV in-house TV channel 1961.

Gullett Leads Growth of UAMS at BTV Clinic Dr. Robert Gullett Jr. has been key in establishing the UAMS Clinic at BTV since it opened on the Village campus in 2017. Now, under the continued leadership of this longtime orthopedic surgeon and UAMS medical director, the onsite primary-care clinic for Village residents is continuing to grow. Three years ago, Butterfield Trail Village and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Northwest formed a partnership that created the UAMS at BTV Clinic. Staffed by UAMS primarycare geriatrician Dr. Larry Wright, the clinic serves independent residents at the Village by appointment with a wide range of comprehensive primary care, preventive care and ongoing case management. Butterfield Trail Village is the only retirement community in the region, possibly the state, with a dedicated primary-care physician onsite serving its independent living residents.
Dr. Robert Gullett Jr. works with medical students at the UAMS Northwest Regional Campus in Fayetteville.
“We’re building a model of quality care for older adults at Butterfield Trail Village,” Gullett has said. “And our clinic is a model that could serve as the basis for other programs or initiatives across the state.” Gullett knows a thing or two about building successful programs. He established Arkansas’ first accredited sports medicine fellowship in 2015 as an adjunct to the UAMS Northwest family-medicine residency program. The Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship includes clinical training at Advanced Orthopedic Specialists, Physicians Specialty Hospital, and with Arkansas Razorbacks sports teams at the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville. Gullett is also responsible for establishing the Physical Therapy Clinic at UAMS Northwest.
Since it opened in 2017, resident physicians from UAMS have joined the BTV clinic on a rotating basis. And Gullett himself — a statewide leader in sports medicine — is also seeing Village residents as patients at the clinic.
He began his medical career in 1976 when he opened a private practice of orthopedic surgery in Pine Bluff, where he practiced for 30 years. During this time, he served as an adjunct faculty member for the AHEC Center in Pine Bluff from 1978 to 2006.
Gullett, who is medical director of the UAMS Northwest Regional Campus in Fayetteville, said the BTV clinic is an evolving model that could be used or built upon elsewhere in the state.
In 2006, he became the director of Regional Programs and Assistant Vice Chancellor at UAMS Northwest. He is currently an associate professor for UAMS College of Medicine – Orthopedic surgery. BUTTERFIELD LIFE

Visit Historic Downtown Siloam Springs Art, Nature and 46th Annual Dogwood Festival Await Have you visited Siloam Springs lately? This vibrant town in far western Benton County has enjoyed continued growth and success over the last decade. Revitalization has made historic downtown Siloam Springs a haven for small business and the arts, while the city itself is full of rich history. In 1880, Siloam Springs was founded as a town whose abundant fresh-water springs possessed healing properties. Located at the border of Oklahoma, tourists seeking improved health and a summer getaway traveled from Arkansas, Missouri and parts of Kansas to drink from the springs of Sager Creek. John Brown University was founded in 1919 and remains one of the top private Christian colleges in the nation.
Today, Siloam Springs offers a relaxed, authentic experience in a nature-rich setting with scenic parks, walking trails, a downtown farmers market, and the Siloam Springs Kayak Park along the scenic Illinois River. Downtown Siloam Springs is on the Register of National Historic Places. The downtown historic district has shops and boutiques, award-winning eateries, loft living, and the newly renovated Siloam Springs Historic Museum. Sager Creek, with its rock wall-lined banks, runs through downtown. City parks are lined with dogwoods and dotted with fountains, foot bridges and gazebos. Some of the city’s most popular festivities take place in these major parks, including the annual spring Dogwood Festival. Dogwood Festival As a matter of tradition, Siloam Springs will host its 46th Annual Dogwood Festival on April 24-26. Held on the last full weekend in April, this award-winning festival draws tens of thousands of people to the parks of downtown. Exhibitors from all over the U.S. fill hundreds of booths with arts and crafts, handmade items, gifts, vintage items and more. Food vendors and regional entertainers are on hand, and the KidZone provides rides and activities for the young at heart.

COMING IN APRIL APRIL 16 | 7pm Historical Presentation: Siloam Springs in the 1920s Please join Don Warden, historian and director of the Siloam Springs Museum, for a journey into the past of this NWA town and the challenges its residents met entering the Great Depression. Established in 1880, Siloam Springs was known for its natural beauty and scenic parks lining Sager Creek winding through downtown. The original settlement, along the creek, dates back to the arrival of Simon Sager and his family in 1839. By the 1920s, the economic boom and the Jazz Age were over, and the Great Depression was looming. It would be a time of bank failures and devastation in Siloam Springs, but also a time for key privately funded construction.

Legend is those Foley (foreground) gallows could strangle a dozen men at a time. The film tells the story of how desperadoes, depending on your interpretation of history, were either tamed or tortured by a man some historians call a megalomaniac, while others choose to believe the judge was nothing more than a civil servant doing his job.

The Razorback Greenway is 37-mile, multipurpose system of paved trails that stretches from Fayetteville to Bella Vista, meandering through six Northwest Arkansas cities. Utilizing in part existing trails systems operated by the various cities, the Razorback Greenway winds through woodlands, past lakes and streams and over rolling hillsides, linking downtowns, schools, parks and shopping.
The BTV Hike & Lunch program has grown in popularity each year since it started seven years ago. This spring, Fitness and Wellness Director Jennifer Neill will resume the group hikes with residents along the Razorback Regional Greenway.

Village residents will be back on Northwest Arkansas’ premier trail system as part of a Butterfield fitness program that combines the benefits of exercise with the beauty of nature and the outdoors.

BTV provides transportation to and from the group hikes. Neill said hiking is a great way for residents to improve their cardiovascular health and overall body strength. Those with knee and other joint pain will likely benefit as studies show exercise by walking helps lubricate knee and hip joints while also strengthening the surrounding muscles. Those who exercise regularly are also less likely to experience age related memory loss. The brain also regulates mood, and walking can help with that too because it causes the body to release endorphins – chemicals that make people feel happy. “If you’ve gone on these hikes with us in the past, there are plenty of new trails and improvements to be seen and experienced,” Neill said. “This is an incredible way to experience Arkansas both on and off the beaten path. We can’t wait to get moving on the greenway this spring!”
