    Is 'dear' needed or better without

    I would like to let all of you, dear members of our club, know that we will be celebrating the second anniversary of the formation of the club this Sunday, 22 March.

    Is 'dear' correctly used in the sentence? Or is it better to remove the word?

    Many thanks.

    I see no problem with using it in this context.
