Gearing Up for Driver Appreciation Week 2018


driver appreciation week banner

Celadon is set to celebrate Driver Appreciation Week next week! While we try to show our drivers just how much we appreciate them every day, next week gives us a special opportunity to go above and beyond, just like our drivers do for us on a regular basis.

Grand Prize

A GPS unit, CB radio, and Yeti Cooler, and a 40″ TV are just some of the great prizes you’ll be able to win at Indianapolis HQ next week! We’ll be cooking out, playing games, and raffling off prizes all week. Check out next week’s schedule for our drivers here in Indianapolis:
