Arvest is proud to support the community by sponsoring an event room in a new wing at a senior center in Shell Knob, Mo.

SHELL KNOB, Mo. — Arvest Bank is pleased to announce that it has sponsored an event room at Central Crossing Senior Center. 

The Arvest Room, part of a new wing added to Central Crossing Senior Center, will be available for events hosted by the Center. The wing includes a dining area, four additional rooms, an exercise facility and additional storage. The Arvest Room is just off the main dining room. 

The center offered a “Room Donation Program” to help fund the wing’s construction. Sponsors are allowed to name the room and provide a display within the room. 

Mark Davis, Arvest Community President in Shell Knob, said sponsoring a room at the senior center fits in with Arvest Bank’s community approach to banking. 

“Shell Knob is truly a volunteer community; anything done here is done with volunteers. Central Crossing Senior Center is one of the centers for volunteerism within the community. We appreciate and honor that volunteer spirit and will continue our dedication to Central Crossing Senior Center with our volunteer hours and monetary support,” Davis said. 

Central Crossing Senior Center offers more than 20 activities for seniors and serves more than 15,000 meals annually to congregate and homebound seniors in Barry and Stone counties. Activities include cards, mah-jongg, dominos, bingo, line dancing, Wii bowling, quilting, foot care, health care, Medicare counseling, income tax filing assistance, wood carving, computer and educational programs. The Center also offers medical equipment for loan to any who have a need. 

Another example of Arvest Bank’s support for the community should be ready for use by the end of the year, Davis said. Arvest Bank is building a new branch bank to replace the current location and construction should be completed by the end of the year. The new branch will be larger and will add a third drive-through teller lane for a total of three lanes.

“We are very excited about the new building,” Davis said. “It will be larger, newer and nicer than what we have now.”

As a part-time resident of Shell Knob. I'm so proud of our little community for being so volunteer oriented. Just about every week there is an article in the local newspaper about Arvest Bank participating in local events. Looking forward to seeing the new branch building too. Thanks Arvest!!
