Dear [Recipients Name],

We warmly welcome you to San Isidro Avenue. I am always grateful when a new business comes to this part of town because, in effect, my business also grows. We sincerely hope that Rainbow Enterprises can also contribute significantly to your success.

This coming Saturday, there will be a business forum at 3 pm at the prime hall of the San Isidro Center. It will be attended by business owners in this area and by the officers of the San Isidro Business group. We wish you can come. I'll call you on Friday for confirmation.

Again, welcome. If there is anything that you need help with while starting out, please don't hesitate to call us.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
