Dear [Recipients Name],

Welcome to this part of town. I am your neighbor, just two houses from the white house across yours. My name is Ann, and my husband is Kenneth. We are both teachers at San Isidro High. I teach English Literature while Ken teaches Math. We have two daughters, one in the fourth grade and one in the seventh grade. I heard you're also married with one toddler? Please do tell us more about your family.

Our village is a lovely and ideal place for raising kids. It is calm, quiet and secure, and just a walking distance to school, the mall, library, grocery, banks, and most importantly the bus stop. If you wish, I can show you around the neighborhood and let you meet our other neighbors who are all so friendly and accommodating. You can call me at 2223334 if you need help with anything, especially with trying to make your way around a new place.

By the way, we will have a get together this coming Friday at the village clubhouse, around 7:00 p.m., and I wish you can come. It would be an excellent chance for all of us to know each other better. Just call me if you can attend so I can drop by your house and we'll go together to the venue.

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.
