GENEROUS SUPPORT – Reelfoot Bank CEO Michael Hagan and Van Ayer Director Larry Sherwood (center) proudly display a plaque of support from the bank to the facility for the recently launched Senior Crimestoppers program at Van Ayer. Others on hand for the announcement include (from left, front) Reelfoot Banks HR Director Michelle Bing, Senior Crimestopper Representative of Memphis Kay Joest, (back) Martin’s Reelfoot Bank VP Carol Reed, Martin Police officer Chris Finch and Senior Crimestopper Field Consultant Shannon McDonald. Van Ayer is the only nursing facility in Weakley County to offer its residents the Senior Crimestoppers program, which allows residents, employees, visitors and family members to anonymously report any illegal activity at the facility or on its grounds. Modeled after the Crimestoppers program, tips leading to the arrest and conviction of a person are rewarded monetarily. Reelfoot Bank supplied all of the financial support for Van Ayer to put the program in place. Residents also have the option to receive lock boxes for valuables in their rooms. Visitors will now notice the signs bearing Senior Crimestoppers facility at Van Ayer.
