Several members of the RotaCare Board of Directors paid tribute to Maureen Clancy as she retired from her duties serving on the board.
Clancy was not only active with RotaCare, she has received numerous awards for her public service over the years including Garden City Citizen of the Year, New York State Senate and Assembly Women of Distinction, Girl Scout Julliette Low Award of Distinction plus two Rotary Paul Harris awards. Clancy was also the first woman to serve on the Garden City Board of Trustees.
The RotaCare Board will miss Clancy’s dedication to the board, volunteers and patients. She was an important part of RotaCare’s mission, which is to facilitate free healthcare for the relief of pain and suffering to those who have the most need and the least access to medical care. The Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club is thrilled to join with RotaCare in its salute to Clancy, who has served the club for the past 33 years. Clancy was the first woman to be admitted into the club in 1987 and served as the club’s first woman president from 1993-94.
