Security Bank Hosts Fall Fashion Show


On Thursday, Sept. 25 the WIN and Venture clubs of Security Bank partnered together for the first time to host a Fall Fashion Show with the help of local women's businesses. The Venture Club was started from another bank, out of state, about 10 years ago. The Venture Club, which is a club at Security Bank that involves vacations and other events, has hosted several fashion shows like this in the past.  


"We have alternated between Dyersburg and Trenton and we feature Trenton and Dyersburg stores," said Dotty Jones, head of the Venture Club.


The Venture Club features local stores in Trenton and Dyersburg.


"Our boss David Hayes, who is president of the bank, was in ICBA. He had a banker friend who had this program. We flew out and stayed several days and learned what they did and how they operated and became apart of the Heritage Club, which helped us since they do research on travel companies and can tell us what's best, we get a lot of advantages by belonging to that," said Jones. This was a non-profit event available for their customers and those registered for the Venture Club.


"The reason we do the Women in Networking part is to give small businesses opportunity for advertisement. We realize big banks and other large companies can afford advertising revenues. We like to give back to the community and let them show off their business for free," said Megan Brock.


The evening began at 5:30 p.m. and started with hors d'oeuvres and drinks, which were catered by The Farms kitchen staff, then followed by the main event of the night, the fashion show. The atmosphere was full of excitement and laughs as the women went around from each table to admire the centerpieces. The centerpieces were adorned with beautiful pieces of clothing, accessories, shoes, and knickknacks from each of the participating stores.


The show, which began at 6 p.m., consisted of Bella Ruche from Trenton, The Mustard Seed from Dyersburg, Cricket Corner from Dyersburg, Urban Cottage from Trenton, Down on Main Street from Humboldt, Westwin from Trenton, and Village Tailor from Dyersburg. All of the stores showed off their best and newest arrivals for the fall. With door prizes, and clothes available to purchase, the first time the Venture Club and WIN have partnered together was a success.

Dyersburg Urgent Team Offers $20 Flu Shots


DYERSBURG, Tenn. (SEPTEMBER 18, 2014)Flu season is approaching, and health officials agree the best preventative action is to receive a vaccine as soon as it's available. Urgent Team, one of the largest and fastest growing independent operators of urgent care centers across the Southeast, has flu vaccines in stock and is ready to protect your family against this year's seasonal flu virus.


"The seasonal flu doesn't have to be a hassle. Our team is in place to be the affordable and convenient solution, so you can safeguard your whole family," said Lynn Scarbrough, Urgent Team's Vice President of Clinical Operations. "We do want to stress the importance of early action, as the vaccine takes approximately two weeks to provide protection that will last throughout the entire flu season."


Flu vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older. While the peak for influenza typically hits between January and February, the season can begin as early as October and last through May. The CDC states the most effective strategy for reducing the spread of illness is getting vaccinated as soon as vaccines are available. This is especially important if you or your loved one is at high risk.


Pregnant women, children younger than five, people 50 years and older and those with certain chronic medical conditions run the highest risk developing flu-related complications. However, anyone can become sick with this contagious disease. Flu vaccines are proven to be about 60% effective in avoiding the flu, but also reduce complications and death in those who get the flu despite being immunized. Flu vaccines are safe and it is not possible to get the flu as a result of vaccination.


Delivery of flu vaccine has begun in our centers, with Novartis Fluvirin™. This vaccine is approved for children ages 4 and older. In order to serve our younger patients, the Sanofi Fluzone™ approved for ages 6 months and older is also available. Contact us at the Dyersburg Center at (731) 882-1958 to inquire about flu shots for children 4 and under.


"Our center is open seven days a week with extended hours and no appointment needed," says Scarbrough. "Let us provide you with a convenient solution, because when it comes to your family and the flu, our team is on your team."


Flu vaccines are currently available at Urgent Team for $20. Walk-ins are accepted on a first come first served basis. Most major insurances are accepted. Stop by the Dyersburg Center at 2395 Lake Road to get your flu shot.


About Urgent Team


Urgent Team is one of the largest independent operators of urgent and family care centers in the Southeast, delivering quality and affordable family healthcare at 19 locations throughout Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee. Urgent Team's convenient, walk-in centers provide a comprehensive range of healthcare services including treatments for injuries and illnesses, occupational health and wellness care. Urgent Team's online and mobile sites allow patients to find a convenient location and register prior to visiting a center.  Urgent Team's corporate headquarters are located in Nashville, Tenn.  For more information, visit UrgentTeam.com.




The Great American Shake Out


The City of Dyersburg would like to invite you to join us in participating in the Great American Shake Out! It is a community exercise taking place on October 16th at 10:16 AM that will help raise awareness and preparedness for earthquake safety. Due to our location on one of the most active fault lines in the United States we ARE at risk of witnessing a devastating quake. By creating a plan of action and practicing that plan we can be prepared as a community in the event of an earthquake.  Most experts agree there is a 90% probability of a major event by the year 2040.  


You can follow the link below and find out how you can participate! This will give you instructions on how you can join the City of Dyersburg, informational resources regarding the Great American Shake Out and fun activities for kids and adults. The Great American Shake Out is about being prepared for an earthquake, knowing how to respond, and practicing that response. This information could save your life.


At 10:16 AM, on October 16, we will sound the sirens (weather permitting) with a 1 minute steady tone, to alert the community of the earthquake drill. This is a great time to exercise your plans, etc.



Jim Harrod Achievement Award

At the Edward Jones Fall regional meeting, branch office administrators, Cara Scofield and Andrea Joy were both recipients of this prestigious award. Cara and Andrea both work at Vondal Davidison's Edward Jones office located at 1190 Us Hwy 51 Byp W, Suite D here in Dyersburg.

 The Discovery Park of America's 1st Anniversary Celebration

UNION CITY, TN-    Jason D. Williams 
will perform a lively concert at Discovery Park of America on Saturday, October 18th beginning at 7:00 p.m., with gates opening at 5:30.  October marks the end of Discovery Park's first year, and the 18th has been reserved for a grand celebration at the park, beginning with a BBQ dinner, highlighted by the Jason D. Williams concert, and ending with an explosive fireworks show at 8:30.  All tickets will be pre-sold and must be purchased by October 17th.  Ticket prices are $20 for Discovery Park members and $25 for non-members.  Tickets may be purchased at the ticket counter at the park, by calling 731-885-5455 or online at www.discoveryparkofamerica.com.

     "Thanks to several sponsors including Little General Stores, Reelfoot Bank, Southern Machinery and Tri State International, we were able to keep the ticket prices very affordable," CEO Jim Rippy said.  "This is going to be a great night of entertainment and with the meal included, $20 for our members and $25 for non-members is a really good price," he added.

     For those of you not familiar with Williams, he plays in the style of Jerry Lee Lewis.  Rolling Stone Magazine said, "There hasn't been raw, vintage boogie this solid since Jerry Lee lost his steam in the seventies."   A wild man onstage, Jason accredits influences like Jerry Lee Lewis, Moon Mullican, Memphis Slim and Al Jolson, for helping to develop his vast repertoire and seemingly endless energy. "I've always welcomed the comparisons; my influences were some of the greatest entertainers ever to be seen," Williams says.

     Jason D. Williams has spent a lifetime behind the piano connecting with country and rock 'n' roll greats while creating a persona that's 100 percent original.  The rock 'n' roll history of Memphis looms large in Williams' world. He recorded for RCA and Sun Records in the 1980s and '90s, and returned to the recording fold in 2010 and has continued steady since.

     At the age of 16, Williams left his tiny hometown of El Dorado, Ark., to perform with LaBeef who had set up a base of operations in northeast Massachusetts.

     Williams, who continues to work with LaBeef on occasion, went solo in the late 1980s and found a steady home at Mallards Restaurant in the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, TN when a snowstorm stranded him a few steps from the Peabody door.  He quickly attracted a following and the rest, as they say, is history.

     After several years, he signed with RCA, which released his first album, "Tore Up," and he stayed on the road after Sun Records issued "Wild" in 1993.   "Don't Get None Onya," released in 2004, captured the power of his unique blend of honky-tonk, country and Memphis rock 'n' roll and was the birth of his own label.   "Rockin," "Killer Instincts," and "Recycled" soon followed, and the latest album is in progress now.

     Williams is also no stranger to large motion picture movies.  Williams performed all of the hand shots for the movie "Great Balls of Fire" starring a young Dennis Quaid and was also featured in "The War Room" documenting Bill Clinton's race for the White House. He has also had numerous television appearances and various shows on MTV, VH1 and CMT.

     The Associated Press has written, "Williams pounds the bejabbers out of the piano, whether he's playing honky-tonk, a Yiddish instrumental solo or a Lewis' cover song." 

     All tickets must be pre purchased for the sho

w and will include dinner, the concert and the fireworks display.  A few reserved VIP tables might still be available.  For more information about reserved tables, call the marketing department at Discovery Park.   Most tickets will be general admission, with Discovery Park of America members paying $20 and non-members paying $25.  The ticket price includes a BBQ meal with tea, the concert and the fireworks.  Other beverages will be available for purchase.  Guests are encouraged to bring a bag chair or a blanket and will pick their BBQ meal up at the food tent to eat "picnic style." 

       Discovery Park of America is open 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 Tuesday through Sunday.  It is a unique blend of history and technology, knowledge and fun.  To find out more about Discovery Park of America, visit the website at www.discoveryparkofamerica.com.

"We wanted to bring all these various groups of leaders together on national Manufacturing Day to share information and gain a better understanding of what we make here in Dyer County, and more importantly, what it will take to keep our broad manufacturing base healthy and growing into the future," said Chamber President/CEO Allen Hester. "We have thousands of people working in manufacturing right now, but we need to pay close attention to technical education, workforce development, job training and business climate issues in order to sustain that base and keep good-paying jobs here in Dyer County."




Main Street Fall Festival

The Annual Main Street Fall Festival was held downtown stretching from the First Baptist Church to the Forked Deer River.  Several Festival attendees got there by antique car, hot rod, Boss Hoss motorcycles and even kayaks.  The morning started with a capacity crowd at the Main Street Farmers Market.  The market was overflowing with kids trying their hands at old fashioned (non-electronic) games and crafts.  Children painting pumpkins, decorating a box playhouse, petting animals, playing musical chairs and wearing little yellow duck hats set the tone for old fashioned fun at the market.  This year the event was all about music.  Country and Bluegrass at the Farmers Market and Blues, Rock, and more Country on the Square.  Hometown favorite, Brian Staron, kept the crew entertained downtown with his comedy magic show.  The festival literally lasted 12 fun-filled hours and brought the community back to downtown Dyersburg!
