Project updates

Hi. I need a way to post project updates (such as weekly meeting key points) on my project tracking documents. This is to keep team members updated on the latest happenings of a project. 

The obvious solution is to simply create a dedicated row towards the top of a sheet and place the news in a cell. But, because smartsheet formatting still sucks many years after requests have been made to improve it (such as lock rows, extend row height, show line breaks in cell preview, etc.), it looks like garbage and is more or less unreadable when you have more than 1 update in a cell.

Of course, I don't want to create an ever-growing list of updates at the top of a sheet, because it will start to crowd out the actual sheet purpose - to see tasks, etc. And I don't want to put this update list at the bottom of a sheet because nobody will scroll down to read it. 

What are some best practices to share project updates with team members in Smartsheet?
