In the News…

The Service League was publicly recognized again by Vidant Health in a full page ad in The Daily Reflector on October 14 and October 21.  Pictured in their Service League coats, from left are Kim Lewis, Fran Best, Bonnie Porter, Karen Gagnon, and our website designer, Linda Anselmi, who will be greatly missed due to her relocating in November.

We are appreciative of this ad and the continued support and partnership with Vidant Health.




Celebrating Eight Decades With Heart, Passion — and Fashion

Rock Springs Center was a buzz as the Service League of Greenville celebrated — with heart, passion, and fashion — eight decades of service to our community during our Annual May luncheon.


To celebrate in true “Service League Style”, Members picked a decade — from our formation in the 1930’s to the present day — and dress the part.  Needless to say, the results were colorful, creative, and fun!

And here is to 80 more years of heart, passion & fashion from THE SERVICE LEAGUE OF GREENVILLE!



Cutting The Ribbon At The Cancer Center Opening

There was a tell-tale sea of blue and green smocks in the audience as Service League of Greenville President Annelle West took part in the ribbon cutting ceremony at the opening of Vidant Health’s new Cancer Center.  The Cancer Center is an important part of improving wellness in Greenville and eastern North Carolina and The Service League of Greenville members are proud to be a part of its beginnings and providing ongoing support through our Hope and Caring Boutique and the Healing Gardens.


Celebrating The Season At Vidant Health’s Holiday Social

All Service League of Greenville members were invited to attend Vidant Health’s Holiday Social on December 7th.  Among those celebrating the season and enjoying the opportunity to meet Vidant Health executive board members and Vidant Health Foundation board members:

SLG Projects Chair, Susan Thornton; SLG President, Annelle West; SLG Placement Chair, Wilma Shackelford; and SLG Corresponding Secretary, Dorothy Smith


4 Workshops — 104 Blankets — Unlimited Love & Compassion

The Easter Bunny made blanket deliveries to Vidant Cancer patients on Easter morning — with a little help from Service League members.

In April, Hospital Activities Co-chairs Cassie Causey and Cathy Marsh made a final blanket delivery to Vidant Hospital.  30 hand-tied, fleece blankets were entrusted to Leslie Spencer’s capable hands.  She, in turn, organized their special delivery to enliven Easter Sunday for Vidant cancer patients.  (Santa’s elves could take some pointers from these ladies.)

Additional blankets will be gifted as other cancer patients finish with their infusion treatments.

All told, 104 blankets were made during 4 workshops by many nimble and willing Service League hands (supported, of course, by plenty of lively conversations) and gifted with love and compassion to patient throughout Vidant Health.

Huge thanks to all the Service League members and Vidant staff who helped make these blanket gifts so special.

And, of course, Cassie, Cathy and Leslie — You ladies are awesome!


Service League In The News: Hospice Volunteering & Provisional Members

During November’s National Home Care and Hospice month celebrations, Dr. Tae Lee, director of Vidant Home, Health, Hospice and Palliative Care, and Theresa Warren, Service League member and hospice volunteer, were interviewed on WITN about the importance of Home Care and Hospice and the wonderful rewards of volunteering with hospice — as many of our Service League volunteers know first hand!


Our thanks to Angelina Brittle, volunteer coordinator for Service League of Greenville Inpatient Hospice and Vidant Home Health and Hospice for sharing the photo and links to the article.  As she said, “Theresa did an amazing job.” We agree!  (Unfortunately  the video interview is no longer available on WITN’s website, but you can click on the photo it will take you to their on-line article.)

And, in case you missed it, The Service League of Greenville was in the Daily Reflector in December giving a warm welcome to our 2017 provisional members – Linda Brewer, Kathy Baxter, Kay Gooding and Mary Nau during our Christmas Tea.  (Please click on the highlighted words to go to the Daily Reflector’s on-line article and photo.)
