Skip Ambrose 2020 Volunteer of the Year

Unfortunately due to the ongoing pandemic we were not able to gather our dedicated volunteer team for our traditional appreciation luncheon. Even though we could not all gather together we thought it was vital that we still honor a volunteer who has demonstrated outstanding dedication and commitment to our mission of preserving and educating the history of auto racing in New England. Skip Ambrose was honored on December 12th with a surprise presentation.

Skip has been a volunteer at the museum since day one. He helped paint the walls and assist with initial setup before the museum was open to the public. He calls volunteers on a weekly basis to help schedule volunteer teams during public hours of operation. Even when the museum was closed for three months at the start of the pandemic, Skip called volunteers to keep them up to date with what was going on. He also assists with food prep for the volunteer teams and helps with general cleaning and maintenance around the building to keep the museum looking great. Skip is so dedicated to the success of the museum he has committed himself to be onsite every day we are open to the public. He is usually the first one to unlock the museum in the morning and the last one to exit at the end of the day.

Join me in congratulating Skip Ambrose for being the 2020 volunteer of the year at the North East Motor Sports Museum. Pictured is Skip with his dedication plaque which is now permanently on display at the museum.
