Dear [recipient’s name]:
It’s amazing that the years fly by so quickly, and it’s about time for a fun-filled family reunion. We will be getting together with near and distant relatives for the weekend of June 20-22 this year at our usual reunion spot, Atlantic Beach. We’ll be renting several side-by-side villas and have negotiated a special rate.
As you probably know, there are fun activities for all ages at this special location. We will also be planning some potluck meals, games, and enjoyable outdoor activities. This is sure to be a time of many laughs, catching up, reminiscing, and memory making.
Please RSVP to our cousin Bob at [firstname.lastname@example.org] to let us know whether you’ll be there. Also let him know how many from your family will be there, and Bob can talk with you more about accommodations and other details.
I really hope you can join us in June! Can’t wait to see you and your family.
