Chapter #18...circa 1985

Deer hunting season began and many of our staff were avid hunters. However, the Villa policy days off during the holidays...and Thanksgiving was near.

One of our young counselors decided to choose hunting over duty and proceeded to call in sick.

What a dilemma he faced when he went hunting on Villa property, caught the biggest deer of his life...BUT HE COULDNT TELL ANYONE! He was “out sick”. Of course nothing ever passed our Founder, Jim’s wise intuition and the word got out!!! THE HUNTER GOT CAUGHT!

And years later we still share and enjoy this story, especially around deer hunting season. The Hunter is now up there with Jim as he passed away just last month. Happy Hunting Mike.....say hi to Jim ...we love and miss you all
