She has devoted her time and talent to great causes such as the Otsego County Community Foundation, the Volunteer Center of Otsego County, Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), Gaylord Woman’s Study Club, Otsego County Historical Society. Maureen won the Zonta 2012 Golden Hug Award and she was the Alpenfest 2013 Beurgurmeister.
