Fancy Newsletters

Why "Fancy"?

Back in the late 1990s, the original editions of the SLF newsletter were dubbed ‘fancy’ as a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement that the newsletter was not very fancy at all.  It was one-page, double-sided, with no graphics.  Readers appreciated its simplicity in a world of complicated and overwhelming communication.  We’ve added a graphic or two, but the template remains the same.  Read our latest “Fancy” Newsletters below!
