FROM: Bobby Johnson:
TO: All colleagues and administrative of Joe Banyon
SUBJECT: Invitation to the farewell party of Joe Banyon, and request for contribution.

Joe Banyon is retiring next month. I have been asked by some of his friends to arrange a farewell party in his honor. It will be this Friday, October 15, 2013 from 6:00pm until 9:00pm at Cary Café, located on 1601, St. Paul Street, Greenbelt, Maryland 21209. I hope that each of you can make it. We are planning to give him a certificate and a gift. I am collecting donations of $5.00 to 10.00 from anyone who would like to donate. I will receive donations up until Wednesday, October 13, 2013.
Please RSVP me by email with your attendance status. You can also email me if you would like to donate to the certificate. I will stop past your cubicles or offices to pick up your donation.

Best Regards,

Bobby Johnson.
