May 15

To Whom It May Concern,

I spoke to a technical support agent from Shooter Cameras on May 14 regarding several difficulties that I've experienced recently with my camera. First, the viewfinder display is blurry and unreadable. Second, the built-in flash does not function when using the manual mode. Finally, the camera does not automatically rewind a finished roll of film.

I was instructed by the agent to send my camera to your facility for repairs by Shooter Cameras technicians. Enclosed, you will find my camera, the Shooter Shotpro 4.0 and a telephoto lens that came with the camera when I purchased it. My camera was purchased in April and is still covered by the warranty. I have included a copy of my receipt to verify my purchase date. Please feel free to contact me if you need any additional information.

Jerry Polanco

Development Specialist

National Organization for Education

4300 West 12th Street

Denver, CO 029344

July 23

Dear Mr. Polanco,

Alicia Jefferson suggested that I contact you about my interest in grant writing and fundraising. She said you are one of the best people to talk to in regard to careers in development.

I am leaving the Institute for Affordable Housing after seven years of experience in grant writing. Because of my positive experience, I would like to continue working with a nonprofit organization. Currently, I'm exploring the possibility of taking a position with the Coalition of Writers. However, before I venture further into the job market, I would like to benefit from the experience and knowledge of other professionals in the field who might advise me on other opportunities for someone with my qualifications. I have several questions which I believe you could help clarify. Perhaps we could meet briefly sometime during the next two weeks to discuss my career plans. I will call your office on Tuesday, July 31, to schedule a meeting time.

I look forward to discussing my plans with you.

Dear Mr. McIntire,

I am writing to request your assistance in organizing a corporate outing at Rollers Amusement Park. We have visited the park for the past four years for our Intern Appreciation Party and have been pleased with your service. I hope that we can continue the tradition this year.

We plan on having the outing on Friday, August 7 and must be firm with this date because it is the last working day for our interns. This year, we will be treating twenty-two guests to a day at the park and would like to request catering service as well. I have reviewed your menu online and would like the Menu “E” Option (Hot Dogs/ Veggie Burgers/pies and cakes). We will only need three vegetarian plates.

Thank you in advance for your help. Please contact me at 312-634-6643 if you need any additional information regarding the outing.
