The Kiwanis Club of Broomfield North Metro selected a new leadership team Monday as the group hopes to build traction in serving the Broomfield community.
Taking the role of club president for the second straight year was Kirsten Gromko, who heads up nearly 30 members currently involved with the Kiwanis chapter established in 2016.
“We are a relatively youthful group,” she said of both members’ ages as well as the group’s relatively recent founding.
The group hopes to continue building good traction in the community, Gromko said.
In addition to its annual Winter Coat Drive that kicked off in August, other community projects Kiwanis members tackled this year included a Christmas Giving Tree at Arapahoe Elementary, filling backpacks for students at A Precious Child and running Key Clubs at Thornton High School, York International, Broomfield High School and Frederick High School.
“People are starting to learn about us and we’re kind of making a name for ourselves,” Gromko said. “We do have some pretty good momentum right now.”
Among the slate of new officer assignments is past president Michelle Hoffner becoming club treasurer and Lyndsey Cumberland taking over secretary duties. Hoffner will also join Tania Renault and Heather McChesney as members of the Kiwanis Club of Broomfield North Metro Foundation Board. Anne Elliott will serve as Foundation Board president, with Hoffner serving as secretary. The group’s president-elect position is currently open, and Gromko hopes to till it in the coming months.
Since establishing the Kiwanis chapter six years ago, the group has sought to add a handful of faces annually.
The new and returning slate of Kiwanis leaders will assume their roles on Oct. 1.
