Subject: Retirement Announcement Letter
Respected One and All,
As you are all aware (it is hard to miss with my graying hair) that I will soon be turning 60. An old man, yes I am aware. And according to the company policy but against my wishes, I will be retiring soon. So this is my attempt to officially announce it to everybody.
I have served the company for the past 15 years, and I must admit, the company has contributed more to me than I have to the company in all these years. Every one of you is responsible for shaping the person I stand as today, and I must admit, I will miss all of you very dearly.
Not a day passes by when I think I am coming to work. Feels like I wake up every morning to meet my family. The times shared and the memories made will be cherished by me for years to come. I could not have asked for a better company, work environment or colleagues. You have truly made my years memorable, for which I will be eternally grateful.
To commemorate this, I would like to invite you all to my house for a small farewell dinner on the DD/MM/YYYY. I would also be coming to each of you personally to thank you for all that you have done for me.
I will always be available for whoever needs me for whatever.
