My longish reply to you got eaten up in our recent server failure, but I will try to recreate it.

I suggested you consider using a contemporary slab-serif font, such as PMN Caecilia or Chaparral, both available in OpenType format from Adobe (and others).

I have used both of these with success on a variety of jobs, including newsletters. They are readable and easy to set, with a good range of weights (Caecilia is the better for that, as it also has small caps). Besides those essential virtues, though, they are also warm-looking, kind of cheerful and welcoming.

I would not justify the text — let it run ragged right.
