Dear Editor: Please accept my sincere personal appreciation for the article you have included regarding the youth ministry of Rev. Krisiti Stuckel and the follow-up major article containing interviews with members of the youth groups of the First Christian Church. Of course I am proud of our youth programs and of Kristi's exceptional leadership. I also am proud of the way The Advocate-Messenger keeps looking for the best in our young people and in the community in general.

Teenagers and clothes go together almost as much as teenagers and cell phones. But the members of the youth group at SS. Peter and Paul Catholic Church recently put a new twist on the relationship between dudes and duds and girls and garb. Instead of buying clothes for themselves, the youngsters at the Danville church collected them for the needy. And they didn't just collect a few pairs of jeans and a few blouses. They collected more than 2,044 pounds of clothing, donated by themselves, their families and parishioners at SS. Peter and Paul.

The 28-year-old Danville woman responded to two callings that resulted in the different headware. But while the hats feature different styles, they both have the same function.
