Here's what one of our Employees had to share...

"I was actually the first server hired in The Villages 21 years ago. Since then I have opened four Country Club restaurants, hosted national TV golf events and met many famous people. I have been given every opportunity to grow with The Villages. It's paradise to live here, and its also paradise to work here!"
