What Others are Saying About Transportation
Sue Landry drives the Happy Van. That’s what her riders call her van because they have such a good time during their trips. Sue’s Happy Van is decorated with holiday themes and with Red Sox and Patriots memorabilia during baseball and football seasons. Clients riding the van sing along with the radio, sing baseball songs, talk about their day and generally have a great time. When they arrive at the day center, or back at home, they are smiling and obviously enjoying themselves. This van is also featured annually in the Fall River Annual Children’s Holiday Parade.
