In expanding our TEMPLATE section, I found this very useful template for a 2-page Senior Newsletter in our archives. Below is the template, plus a short video on how I put it together. The video is several years old and uses an older version of MS Publisher. I opened the template in MS Publisher 2016 and saved it in that version and that worked great.
Many senior adults in churches still prefer print and creating a newsletter for them is not difficult to do. Many seniors today are fit and active and can contribute a lot to the church if they know what is going on. A print newsletter can greatly help.
This newsletter template has typeface size, line-spacing, line length and boxed materials all optimized for seniors. Though the layout here is designed for seniors, it could work well for many other types of newsletters. When designing publications for seniors, a few small changes can make it much more readable and is very easy to do, as the video shows.
Following are the two pages of the Template, then a video that shows how and why it was created and below them the link to download the Template.
The video below shows an older version of MS Publisher, but the basic tasks are the same.
