Newsletter Features

The 1980s was a very social time within the Association. Staff participated in a variety of sports and events on a regular basis and furthered their connection by sharing news, photos and professional updates in an Association newsletter. The newsletter was edited by a team of employees and editorially driven by Lorne Grotkowski, Katherine Fleming and Judy Tremaine. Each issue followed a format that included Feature Articles in the front section. A selection of those articles is listed below.


These Newsletter Feature Articles are in PDF format.  If you do not have the free Adobe Reader software, you can click here to download it.
