At our June 21 meeting, Nominating Committee member Dave Melcher announced that Dr. Kirsten Nelson has agreed to serve as Richfield Rotary Club President in 2018-2019! 
 
After the cheering and congratulations died down, Kirsten was elected unanimously, and outgoing President Chip Groth presented her with the 2018-2019 Rotary International banner to make it official! 
 
Kirsten shared that she made the decision after speaking with one of her chiropractor colleagues who will be serving as President of the Excelsior Rotary Club this year.  When Kristen asked him how he would fit it in, he told her, “Oh, I’ll just squeeze it in amidst everything else I do!”  After some soul-searching, Kirsten made her decision, saying "I love Rotary and thought it was important to step up."
 
Chip Groth will be honored for his two years of service as President at a future soiree.  Kirsten said, “Maybe we can have the party at our house, so we can also inaugurate our new deck!”  Stay tuned for details in a future e-Spokester.
