A family reunion welcome letter should focus on gaining the family members’ attention, presenting pertinent information and requesting any needed help or services. The specific tone of the letter itself will vary by family and by writer.

Writers should begin by getting the reader’s attention and letting him know what kind of reunion it is, discussing the importance of the event and attendance. Next, the writer should provide information about when and where the reunion will take place, any money, food, or other items that attendees should bring or any services they should perform, such as inviting those who are more difficult to reach. Finally, the writer should provide contact information.
