Dear [insert title and name]:

On behalf of the [insert name of district or Post Office] and the United States Postal Service®, I am pleased to invite you to participate in the [dedication/unveiling] of the Alzheimer’s Awareness stamp at [insert exact location] on [insert date] at [insert time].

November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and National Family Caregivers Month. The Alzheimer’s Awareness stamp serves as a reminder to everyone to know the warning signs of this disease. It is our hope that this stamp will promote and generate interest about the need for early detection, caregiver support and continued research to help find a cure for this devastating disease.

With the issuance of the Alzheimer’s Awareness stamp, the Postal Service™ continues its long-standing tradi­tion of raising awareness of social issues. Stamps such as Breast Cancer Research and Hospice Care have helped stimulate conversation about these serious topics in communities from coast to coast. We expect significant press coverage of the ceremony and a good size crowd, including families, healthcare providers, and medical professionals.

Please confirm your participation by calling [name of contact] at [telephone number] by [cut-off date]. We look forward to having you join us at the event.

Sincerely,

[Sign]
