Attention: The password to enter the Newsletter Library changes as each quarterly issue is published. Members are sent a new password by email and newly registering members are provided the password when they register. If your password no longer works, perhaps your membership has expired – please renew now and you will automatically receive the new password. If you are certain your membership is up-to-date but you did not receive a password, send an email to the website content manager and we will look into the problem for you.
The SOFT Times newsletter has helped connect families for nearly three decades. Letters from families and articles from professionals are compiled, edited and printed in a quarterly newsletter. This free on-line newsletter is available only to registered members (membership is free too!).
The SOFT editor is a parent volunteer who takes on this big task four times a year. Deadlines for receiving letters and photos to print in the next issue are necessary and are always noted in each newsletter. Remember to get your letters in on time! The deadline for submitting articles & letters for the next edition of the SOFT Times Newsletter is April 15, 2014.
Submit all stories, pictures and any other information to the editors: Margaret and Jim Thompson, 1232 Seminole Drive, Richardson, TX 75080. You may also contact them by email at: Newsletter Committee. If you wish to have an item returned, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope and tell them of your return request.

Registered members can click the button above to enter the passworded Newsletter Library, which contains current and past newsletters. The Newsletter Library password is changed periodically and the new password is emailed to you, so please record it! If you have lost it, contact the Web Site Content Manager to get it again.
If you did not receive a password by email, it means one of four things:
1. SOFT does not know your email address (send an email to the Membership Committee to correct this and to ask for the password). If you do not have email, contact us by telephone at 800-716-7638 to get a password.
2. Your membership has expired, and you should renew it by going to the Registration page. Upon registering you will automatically be given the password.
3. The email address SOFT has for you is no longer valid (send an email to Membership Committee to correct this and to ask for the password).
4. Perhaps you just joined and forgot to record the password that was presented to you. If so, send an email request to Web Site Content Manager.
