Dear [Recipients Name],

We were so glad when we heard that a family has bought the house next door with twin boys, and now we're even more excited that you have finally moved in! Our son, who is about the same age as your nine-year-old twins, have been wanting to have kids their age to hang out with in this neighborhood. We are looking forward to meeting all of you soon.

We hope you can come for dinner this Saturday so we can learn more about each other's families. You can also drop by our house anytime if you need a chat.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]

Further things to consider when writing welcome letters to citizens, neighbors

Welcome Letters

Welcome letters are letters written to politely greet and introduce others to an organization. They could be sent to new students in a school, new employees in a company, attendees of a conference, etc. The primary objective of welcome letters is to boost the recipients' morale and to let them know that they are now an important part of the team. The letters are considered a gesture of courtesy and the loveliest way to show the recipient that you appreciate his/her presence, efforts, or interests in doing something. Welcome letters may also contain some important information that the recipients may not yet be aware of.

When writing welcome letters, your aim is to make the recipients feel "at home". Therefore, you need to be as friendly as possible. Start by officially introducing the organization to the recipient. Politely thank and congratulate him/her for becoming a part of the team. Reassure the recipient that he/she has made the right decision in choosing your organization. Make sure to address the recipient by his/her name. Be brief and include only the necessary information. Close the letter by thanking the recipient again and sign it off with your name and title.

Letters to Citizens, Neighbors

Letters to citizens and neighbors are letters written to residents or natives of a certain town or city or to people who reside near or next door to the sender. These letters could be formal or informal depending on the sender and the content. For instance, a local government official may write an inform letter to notify citizens of a major security alert in their area of residence. In this case, this will be a formal letter. In other instances, a person may write to invite his/her neighbors to a house party, to offer condolences, to say thank you, or even to apologize. In such situations, the letters are informal and usually have a casual tone.

The best letters to citizens and neighbors are brief and carry only the intended message. State the purpose of your letter clearly in the introductory paragraph so that the recipient can have an idea of what the letter is about. Convey your message and provide any other information you feel might be important to the recipient. End the letter positively and thank the recipient for his/her time, wishing him/her well. If your letter is formal, your full name and signature will be required.
