I am thrilled that we can recognize and revisit the journey traveled by a few dedicated visionaries to make our Village a reality. During my 7 months here, I have been fascinated by the many stories and strong connectivity the people from Northwest Arkansas have to Butterfield. Our culture of caring was initiated by our founding churches in the 80’s and their corporate members still play a vital role in the evolution of our Village. Truman Yancey, an original founding member has kept this spirit alive with his volunteer service to both the Village and Foundation Boards. It is a pleasure to have Truman’s connection to the past, making us ever mindful of our origins. There is a rich and documented history from our Founders that inspires me to strive for a better tomorrow for our residents, family and staff, those here today and tomorrow. As I have come better acquainted with residents, it has enabled me to appreciate our great culture. It has become obvious that our culture has also been shaped by the University of Arkansas. Just like Henry Meenan, a founding member, many residents have been directly or indirectly influenced by the University. I am dedicated to strengthening those ties with the University and our founding churches, thereby, solidifying our market presence in Northwest Arkansas. As grateful as I am for the many sacrifices given to the formation of Butterfield Trail Village, I am equally grateful for the men and women that serve today in various capacities to ensure our continued success. I hope each of you will enjoy our Anniversary issue and join us on March 15th for a celebration. May each of you have a blessed Easter,

Rooted In Tradition. Embracing Tomorrow. Forty years ago the options for retirement community living meant uprooting, leaving family and friends, and moving to another city. In 1969, members of Fayetteville United Presbyterian Church identified this need and reached out to the congregations of First Christian Church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Central United Methodist Church and First Baptist Church. Representatives from these five churches began pursuing the dream of a retirement community right here in Fayetteville. The first organizing committee included: Ellis Shelton, Mrs. Charles Mohle, Marvin Murphy, Col. Eugene Holmes, Anne Vandergriff, Wesley Gee, Rev. Charles Chamberlain and Dr. Eugene Gilmore. After visiting communities all across the country it was determined the project should be a lifecare, buy-in type facility. The desire was for it to be governed by a board of directors while maintaining a relationship with the five founding churches. The order for the incorporation of Butterfield Trail Village — named after the nearby historic route of the Butterfield Stagecoach line — was filed on February 4, 1981. The first board of directors was appointed. The “Original 9,” as they came to be called, included: Bob Beall, Henry Meenen, Gloria McPherson, Ellis Shelton, Charles Kirchen, David
Lashley, Don McGuire, Margaret Stephan and Truman Yancy. Overcoming the seemingly insurmountable tasks of acquiring a ‘certificate of need’ from various State health agencies and the required financing, slowly but surely the dream of Butterfield Trail Village was becoming a reality. On September 19, 1984, a young Governor Bill Clinton, along with the Village founders and a large group of supporters, officially broke ground for a very special community. In March of 1986 the first residents, Virginia Wilson and Martha Rice, moved in. Now 27 years later, the founders’ dream has been realized, as many of Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas’s leaders and longtime citizens have called BTV home after their retirement – as well as people from all over the country. Butterfield has not only honored the tradition established in 1969, it has grown, evolved and improved to meet the ever-changing needs and desires of those looking for a vibrant retirement community. And today, as always, Butterfield Trail Village is poised to move forward – embracing tomorrow. Happy Birthday, Butterfield Trail Village!

Out & About
Exploring Fayetteville’s Multiuse Trail System Spring is one of the best times of the year to get out and about in Fayetteville. And, what better way to enjoy the outdoors than exploring Fayetteville through its wonderful trail system! In 2002, during the Parks and Recreation Department’s master planning process, Fayetteville citizens expressed their wishes for the department to establish a citywide trails and greenway network. The City of Fayetteville immediately hired a coordinator to identify and administer current and future trail projects. Taking into account requests from citizens, Fayetteville now offers more than 18 miles of paved trails, and the Fayetteville Alternative Transportation and Trails Master Plan identifies 100 miles of future trails that will connect parks, neighborhoods and citizens for years to come. In 2005, the City of Fayetteville reviewed its trails program and decided it was more efficient and quicker to begin building the trails system in-house. Now with a collaborative effort between Parks and Recreation and the Transportation and Engineering Divisions, approximately 2-3 miles of trails are constructed annually. These trails provide safe and accessible recreation for citizens while providing alternative transportation opportunities for citizens and visitors. For further information about the trails, or how you can become involved, contact Fayetteville Parks and Recreation at (479) 444-3471, your local elected officials, or local cycling, running or walking clubs. For an informative map of the Fayetteville Trail System, visit http://gis2.accessfayetteville.org/GISPage/Trails.

Genie Donovan came to Fayetteville from Lubbock, Texas in the late 1960’s. At that time her husband taught history at the U of A and her three children were in school, so Genie found herself with time on her hands. That’s when she decided to become a librarian. After volunteering at her children’s school library, Donovan went to work at the Fayetteville Public Library as a reference librarian. She retired in 1993 as the Adult Services Librarian. With her vast experience and love of reading, Genie, a resident of the Village since 2006, now volunteers her time at BTV’s library and writes a monthly article for Butterfield LIFE about library news.

Fighting Colds, Flu and Allergies with Nutrition By Kay Gay, RD/LD
“You are what you eat.” –Author Unknown We can only speculate who the first person was to coin this phrase. And, one would hope to not be labeled a fruit while consuming healthy berries and sweet melons. The truth is that nutrition makes all the difference in the body’s ability to ward off infection and illness. Two nutrients in particular that contribute strength to our immune systems are Vitamin C and Zinc. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is necessary for development and repair of all body tissues. It also protects against damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals, as well as toxic chemicals and pollutants. The RDA (The Recommended Dietary Allowance) for vitamins reflects how much of each vitamin most people should get each day. While the RDA for vitamin C is 75 to 90mg per day for adults, researchers suggest that a range from 500 to 2,000mg will reap health benefits without adverse effects. However, more than that can cause stomach upset and diarrhea. Top 5 Vitamin C-Dense Foods: 1. Papaya – 188mg / 1 whole 2. Orange Juice – 124mg / cup 3. Cantaloupe – 113mg / half-melon 4. Broccoli – 98mg / cup 5. Brussels Sprouts – 97mg / cup (cooked)
Zinc is everywhere in the body, working as a co-enzyme to facilitate thousands of metabolic processes. Of its multitude of functions, zinc’s closest tie is to protein and amino acids (the end product of protein breakdown), forming antibodies that bind to specific foreign particles such as viruses and bacteria to help the body’s immune system. Zinc also changes the form of folacin (folic acid) in order that it may cross cell membranes and effectively be used to combat anemia. It helps the function of white blood cells, as well, which are vital in immune protection. The RDA for zinc (for adults older than 19 years of age) is 11mg for men and 8mg for women. Top 5 Zinc-Dense Foods: 1. Raw Oysters – 74.4mg / cup 2. Sirloin Steak – 13.38 / 8oz serving 3. Canned Crab Meat – 5.13mg / cup 4. Beef Pot Roasts – 5.09mg / 3oz serving 5. Hamburger Patty – 5.01mg / 4 oz serving How To Get More Fruits & Veggies Into Your Diet: • Add pureed or grated fruits and vegetables to recipes for muffins, soup or sauces • Frozen fruit slices make a great snack (i.e. frozen raisins, chocolate-covered apple slices) • Use dark lettuce or spinach on all sandwiches; shredded broccoli slaw also goes great on sandwiches • Eat raw veggies with hummus or salsa Avoid falling into the 80 to 90 percent of adults who do not get the recommended nine servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Try a new way each week to include healthy foods and enjoy the benefits that come to you!
What’s the difference between a living will and a DNR? By Patricia Poertner, LSW / Senior Director of Resident Services We typically have no difficulty making plans for the future when it comes to something fun like a much-needed vacation. However, there is a greater tendency to procrastinate regarding decisions about end-of-life care, despite its obvious importance. I am frequently asked about the difference between a living will and a DNR (do-not-resuscitate) order, so I thought I would address the subject in this article. 14 BUTTERFIELD LIFE
MARCH + APRIL 2013
First, let me mention some general information about advance directives – the legal documents that allow you to give directions for your future medical care. There are two general types of advance directives: a living will and a durable power of attorney (POA) for health care (sometimes called a health-care proxy). The durable POA for health care allows you to name a person to make your medical decisions for you if
The Many Benefits of Exercise By Jennifer Neill, Fitness & Wellness Coordinator
When Butterfield opened its doors in 1986, people were going for the “burn” factor promoted in the Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons television shows. Jazzercise was also the most popular aerobic exercise class at the few fitness centers around the country. New residents to the Village enjoyed a swimming pool and exercise room, but water aerobics was conducted by volunteers – and residents used donated equipment at their own risk. Today, fitness trends for active seniors have changed dramatically! No longer are we going for the “burn.” Instead, we are focused on “functional fitness” – exercise designed to improve our ability to perform daily tasks. Butterfield’s Fitness & Wellness program has definitely grown and improved. We are so fortunate to have the original exercise room with newer equipment, but also a state-of-theart fitness and wellness center with the best equipment, assessments by a fitness coach, personal training options and a supportive program to help residents maintain. Residents now have the option to choose from three classes a day designed for aging well and feeling your best! A huge amount of knowledge now exists on the importance of physical exercise compared to 26 years ago. Butterfield Trail Village has met the challenges of bringing new programs and information to residents through professional assistance. Exercise is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself. In fact, being inactive can be risky. Those who believe exercise will be too challenging or harmful, at any level, is risky. When older adults lose their ability to easily perform daily physical activities, it doesn’t
just happen because of aging – it’s also due to lack of regular physical exercise. According to the U.S. Surgeon General’s Report on Physical Activity and Health, inactive people are nearly twice as likely to develop heart disease as those who are more active. Lack of physical activity also can lead to more visits to the doctor, more hospitalizations, and more use of medicines for a variety of illnesses. According to the National Institute on Health, scientists have found that staying physically active and exercising regularly can help prevent or delay many diseases and disabilities. In some cases, exercise is an effective treatment for many chronic conditions. For example, studies show that people with arthritis, heart disease, or diabetes benefit from regular exercise. Exercise also helps people with high blood pressure, balance problems, or difficulty walking. Regular, moderate physical activity can help manage stress and improve your mood, as well. And, being active on a regular basis may help reduce feelings of depression. Studies also suggest that exercise can improve or maintain some aspects of cognitive function, such as your ability to shift quickly between tasks, plan an activity, and ignore irrelevant information. If you would like to begin an exercise program but are challenged to stay consistent or worried about your safety, please sign up for a personal trainer. Our staff will help you stay focused and accountable while also ensuring your exercise program is safe and effective. If interested, please sign up at the front desk or call me for more information.
you become unable to do so. A living will contains written instructions for medical care in the event that you are permanently unconscious and/or terminally ill and unable to speak for yourself. By executing a living will, you are able to make your wishes known regarding the use of “heroic measures” to sustain your life in a situation in which you are dying with no hope of recovery. The living will pertains only to end-of-life care.
procedure that may be used when a person’s heart and breathing stop. DNR orders are usually issued for people with terminal illnesses, for people with serious or disabling conditions from which they are not expected to recover, and for people who are elderly or very frail – and who would suffer greatly as the result of CPR. Remember that a DNR order covers only CPR and its related procedures, and is issued only with your consent.
The DNR, or do-not-resuscitate order, however, only tells health-care providers not to perform CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) or related procedures on you. CPR is an emergency medical
Because this is very general information regarding DNR orders, it would be advisable for you to discuss any questions or concerns you might have with your physician. BUTTERFIELD LIFE

A Journey of Love By Rev. J. Anthony Holifield, Central United Methodist Church of Fayetteville
Since Jesus told his disciples that they would be recognized as his disciples by their love, I am challenging the members of my congregation this year to observe the Lenten season by participating in A Lenten Journey of Love. I am encouraging them to do something that will demonstrate the love of Christ to those around them. And, I want to encourage members of the Butterfield Trail Village community to join us in this journey. Here’s how to participate…
Week Four: A Week of Good Deeds! Do something especially nice for three or four people this week. Give a gift – pie, cake, flowers, book, etc. Invite someone to dinner. Do something that is gift-wrapped in your love. Week Five: A Week of Visitation! Visit several friends this week. Give special attention to those who may be confined, lonely, sick or bereaved. Let them know that you care about them.
Week One: A Week of Meditation! Use this week to study and look inward at your own heart. Read I John. Spend at least 10 minutes each day praying for God’s selfgiving agape love to saturate your heart.
“...LOVE is one of the greatest forces
Week Six: A Week of Prayer! Pick out six people and write their names on your prayer list this week. Let at least one of these be someone you have trouble loving. Pray daily for them. They may or may not know of your prayers, but God will bless them and you.
Week Two: A Week of Phone Calls! Let me urge you to take for good that exists in our world.” Make a least five phone this Journey of Love. If calls this week just for everyone reading this the purpose of saying, “I takes the Journey (and appreciate you,” or “Thank you,” or “I’m sorry,” or it does not necessarily need to be during Lent), it whatever else you feel should be said to express will impact Butterfield Trail Village in a powerful love. Call people you’ve intended to phone but and good way. Remember, LOVE is one of the somehow never have. greatest forces for good that exists in our world. Have a great and loving journey! Week Three: A Week of Note Writing! Write at least three letters or emails to either friends or foes. They may be notes of appreciation, love, encouragement or reconciliation that only YOU can write. Featured in each issue of Butterfield LIFE is a guest article related to spirituality and the ongoing connections between Butterfield and its five sponsoring churches: First United Presbyterian, Central United Methodist, First Christian, St. Paul’s Episcopal and First Baptist.
