Dear [Recipients Name],

It is time for recollections and memories to come flooding back as we near the time for the Holton High School Class of 91 reunions. Plans are in place, and we would like people to make a day of it if they can.

To this end, we have booked York House to play host to our celebrations, and all of the facilities, including swimming pool, tennis courts, and golf course are at our disposal from midday onwards. For those who just wish to come to the evening reception, we would like everyone seated by 8 pm.

We would ask that you could return the questionnaire as soon as possible to Sarah Jenkins by April 21. The questionnaire will let us plan activities and also the number of seats required.

Additionally, we would also like to have much memorabilia on display as possible, so if you have anything you could loan us, then we would appreciate it. For those wishing to advertise within our reunion yearbook, just send a business card to Sarah.

That is it for this update, although we would ask for assistance in locating missing members of the class. There are still ten members of the class who we have yet to find a mailing address. This list of names is included in the questionnaire.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
