Swiss Villa residents reel in a great time on fishing trip


On Friday, April 24th, residents of Swiss Villa Nursing and Rehabilitation Center went on a fishing trip.

Carl and Barbara Schaum of Madison hosted the event; and for one resident it was his first time in his 85 years to go fishing.

Another resident stated, “Today it felt like time stood still and I was young again.”

Staff members Stacy Banta, Vickie Ware, and Jeremiah Haynes accompanied the residents. Volunteers Matt Ehlers and Danny Hall did the dirty work from baiting hooks to releasing the fish back into the pond.

Peggy Archer and Stella Bennett were both excited for their catch of the day.

Carl and Barbara also provided a wonderful lunch spread. Fun was had by all.

Swiss Villa would like to express thanks to all the family members, volunteers, and staff who put this event together.
