Rainbow Embraces Museum Volunteers at Celebration Dinner


Custom House Maritime Museum Volunteers had to be impressed by the appearance of an impromptu rainbow that arced right over the museum in the midst of the Volunteer Celebration Dinner held Saturday, May 8th.  That evening, the CHMM staff and board of directors hosted over 40 attendees, honoring its outstanding corps of dedicated volunteers who so generously give their time in a tradition of service that enables the maritime museum to operate.

“This important event reminds us not only of how dependent we are on the voluntary efforts of so many,” said Mark Guay, CHMM Chairman, “but of how fortunate we are to have the steadfast support we receive.  We are truly grateful.”

The evening of celebration and great food was capped with a presentation of awards.  Lapel service pins were awarded to volunteers in tribute to their years of service, and the annual Wallace Cup award was presented to Museum Docent Lloyd Sanborn, for outstanding volunteer service.
