Dear [Recipients Name],

I believe you are new to this locality and thought it would be an excellent time for me to introduce myself to you.

My name is Lynette, and I live in the third house at the beginning of this lane. Here we are only happy to welcome new neighbors and make more friends.

We often meet on Wednesdays at tea parties. It would be great if you come over. You will know everyone else in the lane too. Hope to see you soon.
