Memo to Boss. Re: Secretaries Week 2018 Singapore

Dear Boss, a gentle reminder that Secretaries Week 2018 Singapore is just around the corner. I do not know how they compute the dates each year, but it seems that Secretaries Week 2018 Singapore will be celebrated from 23 April 2018 to 27 April 2018.  Unlike last year when you rushed around and informed us at the last minute, I trust that you will have more time to plan this year.  Some people thought you did it on purpose so that some secretaries could not attend. Of course I told them it was not true. Anyway, I think your generosity will be more appreciated if you send the invitations at least one day in advance. To help you make up your mind I have put together a few Secretaries Day lunch suggestions for your kind consideration.
