It’s not much, but still… “As a small token of appreciation and in the spirit of the season, we are offering employees one $15 voucher for the Broad Street café good for Dec. 20 to Dec. 23,” says a memo (click MORE to read) from Rich Graziano, publisher of the Tribune-owned Hartford Courant. At Landmark Communications’ Greensboro News & Record, staffers did a bit better. Editor John Robinson tweeted yesterday: “Distributing $50 gift cards to newsroom staff makes this one of the better days of the year.” Did your media organization give a Christmas bonus? Let us know in Comments.

Thank you for your hard work and everything we’ve accomplished this year. As a small token of appreciation and in the spirit of the season, we are offering employees one $15 voucher for the Broad Street café good for Dec. 20 to Dec. 23 (café is closed on Dec. 24).
To pick up a voucher, please come to the entrance of the café (under the TV) on Thursday, Dec. 16 from noon -2 p.m. or Friday, Dec. 17 from 9-11 a.m. If you are unable to pick one up during these times, please stop by Chelsea Roy’s desk here on the 4th floor.
Only one voucher will be issued per employee, so please do not lose or misplace it. You’ll be required to sign for the voucher upon receipt.
We hope you will visit the café next week (Dec. 20 – Dec. 23) and enjoy the food. Thank you for a great year and here’s to 2011. The opportunities are limitless. I wish you and your families a great holiday season, and a safe and happy New Year.
