This is a GREAT resource that Andre’ has spent hours and hours scanning and formatting and it’s a great relief that all our hard work is now archived digitally. 

Now, whenever you visit our website, you’ll be seeing selected stories of historical significance that have been published in Newsletter over the past 20 years.

We’ll be periodically posting these stories on our front page using the text of the original Newsletter article – with the addition of new web-links, images and reference to related resources.
