Retirement Party Letter, Sample & Format
A retirement party letter is a letter which is sent to colleagues and family members of a person who is getting retired. Retirement in usually attained at the age of 60 or 65 in most countries. In some countries, the age is being increased to 70 to encourage people to work more. Retirement of a person marks for celebration because it means that the person has worked for so many years and now he does not have to do it anymore and he/she can enjoy life at home. Government job employees also receive pension after their retirement in India. A retirement party letter has to be sent to all near and dear ones.
The letter should be short and sweet and should make the party sound fun. Also, remember to mention the achievements of the retiring person in this letter in a short paragraph to acknowledge him. The letter should be written in the correct format and should be convincing enough for the reader to come to the party. Remember to mention the time, date and venue of the party and always send the letter a few days in advance so that people can plan their schedule.

Dear Ryan & Mandy,
Sub: Retirement party for James Davidson.
I am writing this letter to let you know that my father, James Davidson is getting retired next month and so we have decided on throwing him a retirement party on 20th September 2017 at 5;30 pm at Maymorn holiday home resort, Ooty. He has been a government employee for 35 years, and now finally he has the time he needs to rest and live life stress-free. It has been a wonderful experience for him and we have also learnt a lot from it. You being our cousins definitely know his life experiences and hardships.
It will be great if you could join us at his retirement party. Father has always treated both of you as his children only so he will be glad to see you both there. I hope you will be able to take time out for him on this special occasion. I hope to see you two there.
Patrick James Davidson.
