Maxine Keene, Secretary 

Maxine joined NCC in 2000 because:

“I love to sing and believe it is an important outreach for the community.”

She hopes her position on the Board will help to strengthen NCC’s role as a positive influence.

Maxine lives in the Flint area with her husband of 39 years, Dale. She is retired from teaching third grade at the International Academy of Flint. Maxine and Dale are often on the road to Ohio to visit son Joe and his family, including wife, Pam, and grandchildren Aaron, Chloe and Lily, as well as the grandcats. They also have a daughter, Alison, who lives right around the corner from them. Alison, who is also a member of NCC, has a daughter, Evelyn, who is a great supporter of Grandma and her friends in the Chorale. Maxine also enjoys camping, reading and spending time with friends.
