    Only "You are welcome to join me." is correct.

    Note my corrections above. We end sentences with a single, appropriate punctuation mark. Please enclose the phrases you are querying in quotation marks (or italicise them) to set them apart from the rest of the sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Hello, Lilly:

    I, too, get confused with the word "welcome."

    It might help to remember that "welcome" is an adjective. For example, when someone thanks you for a favor, you reply "You are welcome."

    It is a verb in "You are welcomed." For example: "When you visit Hawaii, you are welcomed by a lei [a string of flowers] being put around your neck." That is to say, "They welcome [verb] you by putting a lei around your neck."
