    Exclamation HELP - MS PUBLISHER Scout Newsletter Template Required

    Title says it all - anyone out there got some potential designs they would share with me... To be used for a scouting monthly newsletter for all sections.

    Would be great if it had a Scouting 2007 'look and feel'

    TIA - Chris

    I use publisher for my Beaver newsletter, but perhaps you would prefer something a little less "childish". Let me know if you want it. I have used the 2007 banner to put a year planner on page 2.

    I would use MS Word for a newsletter personally.

    Id stick the scouts logo and the 2007 logo in the top left and right, respectivly and have a header with the group name and title, date below. Then do a table or text boxes for where you want each article to go.
