Encourage youth in public service
To the Sun:
Hundreds of young people from your community will join thousands of youth across the commonwealth to serve their communities as part of Global Youth Service Day, April 25- 27.
The annual event, organized by Youth Service America, is the largest service event in the world, mobilizing young people to identify and address community needs through service and civic engagement. It also educates the public about the role of youth as leaders and resources in their communities.
Kentucky Child Now serves as lead agency for Youth Service America in Kentucky.
As community youth development coordinator for Kentucky Child Now, I hope that every club, school, and church in your community participates in Global Youth Service Day projects. We would like elementary through high school young people to take part.
Communities in our state are committed to raising caring and competent adults.
It is critical for youth to understand the value of community by giving back to their community.
Service projects serve as a first step for many youth in their commitment to lifelong community service.
For information concerning Global Youth Service Day in your area and to register your project, please visit our Web site at http://www.kychildnow.org/gysd. Also please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Outstanding care shown by hospital
To the Sun:
My father was recently admitted to Clark Regional Medical Center after going to the emergency room.
I would like to extend my appreciation to the emergency room staff, lab technicians, and the third-floor nursing staff for the wonderful service and help they provided.
The professional attitude, courtesy and friendly service were greatly appreciated by my entire family.
The staff works long hours and still remains calm and professional at all times and willing to answer any questions to ease our minds.
The nursing staff was quick to respond to any calls made from the call button and met our every need.
I would also like to extend thanks to Dr. August Ott, who works long hours but still extends professional knowledge and a wonderful bedside manner with a quick response in getting my father back home.
Our thanks and applause to the Clark Regional Medical Center.
