Arvest Bank to Provide Singing St. Patrick’s Day Telegrams March 12 & 13

Thursday, February 28 at 02:00 PM
Category: Arvest Community News

Arvest Bank in Harrison will help add an additional element of fun to the community’s observance of St. Patrick’s Day during the days leading up to the celebration of Irish-American culture. 

Arvest is currently taking pre-orders for singing St. Patrick’s Day telegrams that will be led by Chris the Leprechaun on March 12 and 13. On those dates, the leprechaun will sing an Irish song to the recipient of telegram, while jovially wishing everyone he encounters on the way to delivering the telegram a “Happy St. Patrick’s Day.” 

Those interested in sending a singing telegram may sign up at the Arvest Bank branch at 1402 Hwy. 62-65 N. in Harrison. The cost is $10 per telegram. Senders will need to provide the name and address of the recipient of the singing telegram.  

All proceeds from the event benefit the Ozark Share and Care, a local hunger relief organization. 

“This is a fun opportunity to surprise friends, co-workers or students with some pre-St. Patty’s Day cheer - and we’re pretty sure our leprechaun will put on a great show,” said Scott Tennyson, market president of Arvest Bank in Harrison. “While this is all in good fun, more importantly, this event is part of our bigger mission to reduce food insecurity in North Central Arkansas.” 

Tennyson said the singing telegrams take place a couple of weeks before Arvest Bank launches its annual Million Meals campaign. The campaign encourages associates, customers and communities to donate nonperishable food items or monetary contributions at any Arvest Bank location during a two-month period. All local donations benefit local food partners. In Harrison, Arvest’s food partner is Ozark Share and Care, a food pantry and thrift store that benefits those in need.

Category: Arvest Community News

Arvest Bank is pleased to announce it has reached an agreement to sell one of its existing facilities to the Harrison Convention & Visitors Bureau at a reduced price as an in-kind gift.

The Harrison Convention & Visitors Bureau currently leases space at 200 W. Stephenson Ave., a building previously owned by Bear State Financial, Inc. Arvest took over ownership of the building via its acquisition of Bear State.

As a result, Arvest has decided to sell the building to the Harrison Convention & Visitors Bureau at a greatly reduced price of $20,000.

“The Harrison Convention & Visitors Bureau is an important organization in our community and provides many benefits for those of us who call this area home,” said Scott Tennyson, market president for Arvest in Harrison. “We are glad to reach this agreement that will not only allow the bureau to stay in the place it has called home for several years, but also to own a larger space that it can leverage for numerous uses in the future.

“This gift also reflects our shared commitment to the growth and vitality of our downtown area.”

As a sign of appreciation, the Harrison Convention & Visitors Bureau will name the building’s existing board room the Arvest Bank Conference Room.

“We appreciate the generosity Arvest Bank has shown in helping us reach this agreement,” Harrison Convention & Visitors Bureau executive director Matt Bell said. “We look forward to continuing to fill our role in the Harrison community, and this expanded workspace will help us do that. This agreement also is one that will provide long-term financial benefits to the bureau.”
