Hi all.  


I am thrilled that so many people responded to the previous message.  A few
asked for details, so I'll tell you what I remember from past years:


Date:  Week of January 31-February 4, 2022.


Plan:  Pick one day if the van driver comes to your library more than once.
When he/she arrives give him/her whatever you have decided upon.

Restaurant or whatever you think is best.  (One year the van driver had
mentioned to me that his parents had purchased tickets for a trip to Florida
later in the year for his whole family and he was really excited about it.

                             If you want to add something physical- a bag of
munchies, or a travel mug, or whatever.  

                             Write a Thank You Card for the Van Driver.  


Remember- this is for the VAN DRIVER- not necessarily the company, so if you
decide to give him/her a gasoline gift card be sure he/she is aware it's for
personal use.  


Otherwise- just have fun being creative with this.


If anyone else has any other input- please add in your comments.
