The Fax of Life - 2012 Index
 

A weekly inspiration, courtesy of the Kiwanis Club of Scotts Valley

 

Since 1995 the Scotts Valley Kiwanis Club has distributed weekly inspirational monographs, initially by FAX and then in the late nineties by e-mail. Despite the change in transmission mode the original name has been retained for consistency - Fax of Life.

 

In addition to individual recipients these messages are posted to the website of several clubs. Rosemead Kiwanis is happy to be included in that group; we are also pleased to carry the project one step further --  archiving both the new weekly emails for future reference plus older issues that predate our website. (Currently years 2005-2013 plus 1996-1997 are available - prior years are being added as time allows).
