Dear Mr. Harris

RE: Note of Appreciation

With this letter, please allow me to offer my note of thanks and gratitude to you in recommending me to be invited to be a Committee Member at the Board of Directors. I am indeed honored to join the Board of Directors as an ordinary member, much less a Committee Member.

I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute further to the welfare of Bayview Enterprises of which I have loyally served for the past 8 years. I would like to thank you for your fair administration to your employees which gives each of us an equal opportunity to succeed according to our merit.

I assure you that I shall work my best so as not to disappoint you in my work performance and contribution to the company.

Once again, thank you for your trust and belief in me.

Yours sincerely,

David Heffernan
