The Fax of Life - 2013 Index
 

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

 

From 1995 to early 2013 the Scotts Valley Kiwanis Club distributed weekly inspirational monographs. Initially these were done by FAX and then. in the late nineties,by e-mail. Despite the change in transmission mode the original name was retained for consistency - Fax of Life.

 

In addition to individual recipients many of these messages were posted to the websites of various Kiwanis clubs. Rosemead Kiwanis was happy to be included in that group beginning in 2005. We

were 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. We have the text of the 1998-2004 issues and are converting them as time allows).

 

Due to health issues in the family of the Fax's 1913 editor (who was the daughter of the founder) the Fax went on hiatus in 2014 and has not been resumed. Rosemead Kiwanis is happy to host

what we believe to be the most complete archive of Fax issues on the Internet,

.
