Writing a Family Newsletter

I think two letter-size pages is a good size for a nuclear family newsletter. (If your extended family has gotten involved, you might need multiple pages to include everyone’s updates.) Unless you’re a master storyteller, you risk boring your audience if the newsletter drags on for dozens of pages. The first one I ever wrote was six pages of solid text — snoozefest!

A rule of thumb: The more frequent the newsletter, the shorter it should be. If you only write one newsletter a year, four pages is fine. If you send the newsletter quarterly, limit it to two pages unless you’ve got a gigantic family.

Make sure you have a good starting point for your readers. You can begin with a greeting or holiday wishes from the whole family, or jump into the biggest news item with an eye-catching headline. Maslog, who’s been writing his family’s newsletter since 1967, says it’s important to keep the information short and condensed. A bulleted list of highlights is one way to tell the story of your year without overloading readers with text. Maffie Silvania of Chicago, who has been creating her family newsletter for five years, writes hers in letter form with photos interspersed in the text. “It’s easier for me to write this way because it’s as if I’m writing to a friend. With boxed formats, I get too worked up or stressed out,” she says. Or if you’re not big on writing, just caption photos from important events.

Having other family members contribute takes some of the work off you and gives readers a different voice to listen to. Try to give each family member equal space. If one person tends to ramble on, ask him to pick just three important points to highlight in his write-up. Remember that not all people are born writers — you can ask folks who don’t like to write to share their favorite photos or anecdotes instead. Or you could do an exclusive interview with them.

If you’re writing the newsletter yourself, remember to write clearly and succinctly — inside jokes and sarcasm don’t usually translate well into print. Using humor is good, but don’t poke fun at anyone in particular (you don’t want to be sequestered to the kids’ table come Christmas).

Keep captions for photos to two to three lines. Don’t write what’s already obvious from the photo for example, “Aunt Peg (left) serves a plate of green bean casserole to Grandpa Sam (right).” A better caption would be “Aunt Peg, serving Grandpa Sam at Thanksgiving dinner, won second place for her green bean casserole at the Kenton County Fair in August. Despite the look on his face here, Grandpa later asked for seconds.”

If you have space to fill in your newsletter, you could note important national or international events that affected your family, or news from extended family. You could even ask Aunt Peg for her green bean casserole recipe, or ask several family members to answer a “Question of the Year.” Remember to add a feedback corner — give a little information on who wrote in the issue and tell readers how they can contact you. Be open to comments and criticism so you can improve the newsletter.


The Crimson Historical Review is fast becoming one of the premier undergraduate historical journals in the country. Last semester’s issue was characteristically ambitious, with over a hundred pages of robust scholarship drawn from a diverse body of undergraduates, from Alabama, Yale, Washington University in St. Louis, West Point, Pacific Lutheran, and Swarthmore. For the current […]

This year, the Undergraduate Historical Society launched the inaugural Capstone Conference of Undergraduate History. A student-run research event, the Capstone Conference creates a space for students to share their cutting-edge work with the broader history community. The idea sprung from the undergrads’ desire to showcase the diversity, breadth, and depth of the research produced in […]


Newsletter - History

The first edition hit the streets on 26th July 1977. Reading it today jogs the memory of times past and gives interesting glimpses into life in Buninyong, 35 years ago.
Issue No.1 July 1977 consisted of eight pages and covered items such as:

* Kid's Corner by Uncle Bill (written by the headmaster of Buninyong Primary School, Peter Carter). A Children's Contribution: "The grade 5 & 6 girls played against the Napoleon and Magpie girls for a game of softball. As we started the game Joanne Peoples was hit by a football and was taken out of the game"
* Films for Children shown at the school on Saturday afternoons (admission 50cents)
* Concert to Aid School Camps to Halls Gap and Adekate at Dean
* News of an Innovation Grant to set up ceramics and photography programs in the restored Miner's Court cottage in the school grounds
* Badminton team times - the contacts were Mrs L Huggins and Mr & Mrs R Parkinson
* Football Club News that announced that Cr Tom Mahoney was re-elected President
* Buninyong Gardens Restoration Group progress report of which Mrs D Whykes was the Secretary, with Mr R Vagg President and Cr Tom Mahoney Treasurer
* * St Peter and Paul's Catholic Church calling for donations of magazines and books to take to the residents of Brim Brim
* Holy Trinity Anglican Church services were in the small Sunday School Hall because the interior walls of the Church were being restored
* The Buninyong CWA held their meetings in the RSL Hall
* Ladies Keep Fit every Tuesday morning in the Holy Trinity Hall
* Meals on Wheels had been operating for 18 months out of Brim Brim, co-ordinated by Mrs J Powell, and delivered by 43 volunteers to clients within a five mile radius
* There were three Cub and Scouts groups that met at the Holy Trinity Hall with the contact person Derick Leather
* Senior Citizens had just had their second birthday
* Two local Spinning Groups met at the primary school and were assisted by Diane Westbrooke, Gillian Carron, Helen McKnight, Marilyn Bradford and Heather George
* * A Youth and Recreation Centre was being organised by Dot Henderson and Carol Henderson
Brownies and Guides news
* Lions Club of Buninyong-Mt Helen information

Many of these residents named on various committees are still active in the community today. The first newsletters were sponsored by the Buninyong & Mt Helen Lions Club who still continue their interest today.

The original (July 1977) Committee members were:

  • Betty Schreinzer and Peter Carter (co-editors)
  • Derick Leather (Secretary/Treasurer)
  • Jeanne Hendy (Publisher)
  • Alan and Mavis Bath
  • Maureen Coxall
  • Frank Stafford
  • from September 1977, Dawn Whykes (Treasurer/Asst Secretary)

Change to online publication - 2012

In 2012, rising printing costs and distribution difficulties forced the committee to consider moving to online publication, and in July 2012 the Buninyong and District Community Newsletter marked its 35th Birthday with its first digital edition. The move was not widely popular and many complaints ensued, especially from older residents. Meetings between the Newsletter Committee and the Buninyong and District Community Association in 2014 resulted in the Association taking over responsibility for the production of the newsletter and the return to print copies from the start of 2015.

"New-look" Buninyong Newsletter - 2015

As of February 2015, print editions of the Buninyong & District Community News were once again produced each month, with the assistance of grants from the Community Bank, and made available at designated outlets in Buninyong. A dedicated newsletter co-ordinator was appointed and the newsletter was completely revamped with a new design including color images and a stronger emphasis on reporting local news. Late in 2015, the newsletter was given a permanent home in the newly-opened Community House at 407 Warrenheip St. Online copies continue to be posted monthly for storage on this website.
Community members and groups are invited to submit material for the Buninyong Community Newsletter. Copy for articles should be no more than 400 words and may be accompanied by a photo (max 2). Articles should be submitted by the 12th of each month and forwarded by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Advertising enquiries should be directed to 5341 2844.

Plus: the priest leading Poland's fight for LGBTQ rights |

Last week, I talked about the paradoxical timing of Texas Governor Greg Abbott signing a bill into law that could restrict how teachers talk about the legacy of America&rsquos past alongside President Joe Biden signing a bill into law declaring Juneteenth as the U.S.&rsquos newest federal holiday.

In this week&rsquos cover story, I dive deeper into those two ways of thinking about the past and how to teach history in K-12 U.S. public schools, through the lens of the efforts to mobilize parents against critical race theory. Half of U.S. states have passed or are considering actions that could restrict how the topic is discussed in schools&mdashand, in particular, limit the use of critical race theory, a once-obscure academic framework that has become a stand-in for much more. But while the debate is a national one, curriculum is designed at the local level, so I visited one school district in suburban St. Louis and talked to educators, parents and students about how their community has become divided. The debate is between those who think the past is in the past and those who believe teaching the legacy of the past is the only way to prepare students for the future. And the rhetoric has had consequences staffers have received death threats, and had security at their homes. The school district, meanwhile, says actual critical race theory isn&rsquot even taught in its schools.

Historians always tell me that there can never be one U.S. history because there are so many people who make up America, who have experienced its past and and are living through the present in different ways. Click here to read how today&rsquos debates over how to teach history fit in the history of curriculum battles.

Here&rsquos more history to know:

&ldquo&lsquoWhat is a human face?&rsquo asks Picasso. &lsquoWho sees it correctly&mdashthe photographer, the mirror or the painter? Are we to paint what's on the face, what's inside the face, or what's behind it?&rsquo Like the Eiffel Tower. Today Picasso's own face is leathery, seamed and wrinkled, illuminated by big dark eyes which sometimes sparkle but more often stare off into the distance. He is old and fat, but still powerful: his chest and belly, bristling with white, goatlike hairs, are mahogany-tanned. At 68, he still dominates the whole canvas of modern art.&rdquo (June 26, 1950)

&ldquoLast week, as alumni gathered on campuses across the nation for reunions and beaming parents strolled shaded walks with newly graduated sons, proud leaders of academe pointed to glistening new science buildings and plushly modern dormitories, talked glowingly of new plans, programs, projects. But this appearance of comfortable affluence is largely deceptive. Behind the impressive facades of most private universities and colleges there is a deep concern. They are in grave financial trouble, and many are searching frantically to close a dollar gap that threatens their very existence. (June 22, 1967)

&ldquoKevin Costner is the man of the moment and a star out of his time. What other actor would think to achieve rampant movie fame by playing a Soviet spy and two baseball fanatics? For Costner, though, the improbable risk was a good career move. As Eliot Ness in The Untouchables, he played the straightest arrow in Prohibition-era Chicago and made saintliness sexy. As Tom Farrell, the cryptic intelligence officer in 1987's No Way Out , he brought devious modernity to a character right out of a '40s suspense novel. As Crash Davis, the bush-league catcher in 1988's Bull Durham, he found charm in cynicism and anchored the first hit baseball movie in a dozen years. And as Ray Kinsella in the current Field of Dreams &mdashthe Iowa farmer who hears spectral pleas of pain, builds a ball park in his cornfield and follows the voices back to his childhood heart&mdashCostner, 34, has touched filmgoers with an E.T. for adults. Both Bull Durham and Field of Dreams echo with the American and Hollywood past.&rdquo (June 26, 1989)

Patriotic education: Historians Heather Cox Richardson and Joanne Freeman talk about past curriculum battles in a recent episode of their podcast Now & Then.

Campaign watch: Branden Adams finds a historical parallel to Andrew Yang&rsquos unsuccessful campaign for mayor of New York City in the city&rsquos 1886 mayoral race.

Profile: For The Nation, historian David M. Perry profiles Oklahoma historian Karlos K. Hill on teaching the 1921 Tulsa race massacre.

Rock on: The New York Review of Books runs an adaption of a recent lecture on how history inspired Bob Dylan&rsquos music by Sean Wilentz.

Time travel: And just in time for the summer vacation season, Scott Borcher explores the travel guides created during the Great Depression for The Atlantic.
