VBH WEEKLY HEADLINES

Red, White & Brew Stable Call

Hoppin has it going on, a new twist on the bar experience and a high tech way of getting your drink. How you say? Well they have wristband technology which tracks what and how much you pour...yourself. That's right, no bartenders! How do they do it? Well here's your opportunity to come check it out and enjoy some good beverages with friends.

This month we are all assembling at Hoppin on Thursday February 28th rom 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

Eagle NamasDay
Hosted by Team RWB Chapters at studios, outdoors, and even on paddle boards throughout the country to bring veterans together with their communities to practice yoga and showcase its role in increasing physical and mental health.

JOIN US as we come together on World Yoga Day to practice yoga, push ourselves with a new challenge, and celebrate yoga's power in veteran health. So, grab a friend, and join us for Eagle Namasday! The goal is to get as many Eagles and community members as possible practicing yoga on the same day all across the country in support of veterans!
Veteran of the Month

VBH would like to recognize our fellow Veterans who served and are continuing to serve, their community. Do you know anyone who served, who doesn’t seek attention, but seems like they’re always doing good? This is your opportunity to show them a little love. No matter how young or old, we encourage you to nominate a deserving Veteran today. It could be a family member, spouse, friend, mom or dad. 

Veterans will be selected on such factors as community impact and service record. Each month we will select a Veteran who will receive a VBH prize package including a shirt, hat, recognition and more. Selections will be recognized in The Connector and social media channels. They will also be entered in a drawing to receive four (4) free Carolina Panthers tickets to a game during the 2019 season.
Volunteer today with Novant Health Hospice. They participate in the national We Honor Veterans hospice partnership—to ensure we are meeting the needs of seriously ill Veterans and their families.

Veteran hospice volunteers are a valuable resource for other veterans at the end of life as they share similar experiences, a common language terminology, cultural bond, and codes of conduct and honor. This allows for the perfect gateway to be opened between Veteran Volunteers and Veterans being cared for by hospice.

If you are a veteran and would like to provide much needed support to our patients and families, please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Misty Santiago at mestroupe@novanthealth.org or
