SENCLAND Chapter Shirts
Based on the number of Survey responses indicating a desire for SENCLAND Chapter Shirts, the Board of Directors have approved opening an Online Store thru the Queensboro Shirt Company in Wilmington. Once setup, members will be able to access the store, select from a variety of shirts, and purchase directly from Queensboro. Shirts will then be shipped directly to the individual member. It is anticipated that the Online Store will be available in early September. Instructions on accessing the store will be made available at that time through the SENCLAND Web Site and Chapter Newsletters.

SENCLAND Hospice Program
Our Chapter Hospice Program to recognize Chapter members entering Lower Cape Fear Hospice facility or receiving Hospice treatment at home, with a Veterans Recognition Ceremony is underway. The ceremony will include the presentation of a service specific lapel pin and an appropriate certificate of service. Ideally, this would be scheduled during the first few days of Hospice Care. Spouses or family members of Chapter Members admitted to Hospice Care should inform Jason Clamme at Lower Cape Fear Hospice (910-442-3000), who will coordinate with Chapter representatives to schedule the Ceremony. Chapter members are ask to notify Jim Carper (910-262-7101) or Bonnie Carper (910-762-4524) immediately upon learning of any member or spouse entering Hospice care, so that no member goes without recognition.

The tool asks some basic questions to get started and even steers the user toward the proper appeal route if that is the next step.
