After helping 22 clients create an amazing 57 legal documents today in the Avery County Senior Center, the Western Wills Trip enjoyed a fantastic early dinner at Dunn's Deli in Banner Elk. Despite numerous distractions (eagles, shaggy sheepdog, lost beagles, a GPS named Karen with a mind of her own) the three SUVs managed to make it back to the cabin. Not together, or following the same path, or necessarily using roads, but back!
Dylan and Leslie led our second reflection session, which revealed the group's growing confidence with client interaction and a deeper appreciation for how meaningful pro bono service can be. Every team made personal connections with the clients, handled the documents confidently, and maintained enthusiasm throughout the entire experience.
In furtherance of our growing group bond, a rousing game of Mafia ensued. Notions of fundamental fairness found themselves going up in smoke with the logs on the fireplace: "I'm not the Mafia. I'm not even into Crim Law!" and "... can I get a JNOV? Hook me up." We look forward to tomorrow and the return of due process, just in time for our final client sessions of the trip.
