Granite State Ambassadors lend helping hand during holiday rush


MANCHESTER - A group of trained volunteers spend their time helping aid state tourism, and they don't hesitate to work for free, even on holidays.

The Granite State Ambassadors are a group of 1,200 volunteers who work around the state. For tourists who travel into New Hampshire by air, the Ambassadors can be their first encounter.

"We want to be here to comfort them," said Ambassador Maureen Walsh.

Even on Christmas Eve, volunteers could be found at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. They help direct travelers who need help with hotels, transportation and more.

"In the summer, the typical question is: 'Where can I get a lobster roll,'" said Ambassador Joe Reisert.

For Granite Staters who have family or friends coming in to the airport, tell them to look for the smiling face with an "Ask Me" button.
