CHESAPEAKE TREASURES, a secondhand store operated by Hospice of the Chesapeake volunteers, is moving to Severna Park's Park Plaza Feb. 4.

Since opening in May, the shop has raised $20,000 for patient care and bereavement programs. For information, call 410-987-2003.

Longtime hospice volunteer Pam Beidle of Beidle Insurance Agency in Glen Burnie has been elected to that organization's board of directors.

She recently received national recognition when she was

awarded the 1998 Nationwide Insurance Community Service Award for dedication to civic causes.

Also elected to the board was the Rev. James Kirk, pastor of Harundale Presbyterian Church in Glen Burnie. Each will serve a three-year term.

Susan K. Hayes, of Alacrity Collections in Annapolis, has been chosen for the hospice foundation's board of directors. The foundation raises funds to allow the hospice to offer services regardless of clients' ability to pay.

The emotional needs of hospice clients are the concern of the Bereavement Center.

Support groups for adults who have lost a spouse or other loved one to natural causes or to homicide or suicide meet.

KidSCENE is a companion program for youngsters, one group for ages 6 to 10 and one for ages 11 to 14. They meet separately from the adults.

Another group is for primary caregivers who have lost the ones they were caring for.

To register for any support group, call 410-987-2129.
