NELA’s 2nd Vice President Tina Benson of L.A. Limousine (left) and Secretary Lynda Saitta of Momentum Drives Boston —The New England Livery Association (NELA) recently held its annual Chauffeur Appreciation Day, a yearly event where the board of directors and other members volunteer to both prepare lunches for and support the driving staff that serve as the public faces of their operations.

On June 7, the Logan International Airport Limo Pool turned into the place to be to grab some grub, win some prizes, check out some entertainment, and be recognized for all the work that chauffeurs do to keep New England’s luxury ground transportation companies running.

Now in its 18th year, the long-running day of gratitude serves up free meals of hotdogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers, and sausages by the hundreds—and with all the fixin’s—to busy chauffeurs as they make airports runs to and from New England’s largest airport.

Officers and members of NELA came out to work the food stations and booths In addition to the many NELA representatives who manned the grills, ran the raffle tables, and ensured that the day ran smoothly, more than two dozen gold, silver, bronze, entertainment, copper pennant, and raffle sponsors helped make this year’s Chauffeur Appreciation day possible. Gold sponsors included Allied Technologies, Black Tie Limousine, Commonwealth Worldwide Executive Transportation, Dav El/BostonCoach, and Grace Limousine.

The next events for NELA include its June 19 annual membership meeting and August 7 annual George Colarullo Memorial Golf Tournament.
