Dear John Smith,

Retirement Party for Mr Alexander Dowie

This is to inform you that Dr Alex Dowie our  Director of the IT Department is retiring on January 23, 2013.  Dr Dowie joined our company 20 years back when the company was in its initial years and was trying to make its place among the top ranked companies in the Mortgage Industry.  Ever since then, he has positively contributed towards the success of this company. We were never short of his advice when it was most needed and his leadership and faith in his fellow colleagues has always been exemplary.

In order to say a formal ‘Good Bye’ and to wish him luck for a relaxed retired life, a farewell dinner is organized by the company at Ramdas Hotel, 45 Johnson st, kingston, Ontario on 23 January, 2013.

You and your spouse are all invited to grace this occasion and express your best wishes to Dr Dowie in person. Kindly RSVP by responding to this email with the name of your guest by 15th of January.
