Date: September 21, 2022


Dear (Receiver’s Name),
I am extremely sorry to inform you that our get-together party which was scheduled on (Some Date) has been canceled due to unavoidable circumstances. I feel very ashamed about saying this to you.

I know that many of you brought your friends and family to the occasion and we had to cancel our occasion at the last minute. We had never anticipated that it would rain the whole of the last Monday after having fine weather for a couple of weeks. It was our fault for not arranging to have temporary shelters erected in the case of rain. Anyhow, we have learned our lesson and we will be more prepared in the future.

I regret any inconvenience this may cause you, even though I have tried my best to inform you all as soon as possible.  We will plan to have another dinner party next month with all preparation. Until then I apologize for all inconvenience that you have faced and look forward to seeing you again next month.

Thank you for understanding the matter. With best regards and lots of love.

(Your Name)
