We join the Kiwanis Club of Chelsea in congratulating Elaine Monge on her installation as president of this outstanding service organization.
It was a proud moment for Elaine and her family as she took the oath of office at the installation luncheon at the Wyndham Chelsea Hotel.
Monge is part of a distinguished list of women such as Susan Gallant, Janice Sikorski, Barbara Martin, Renee Caso-Griffin, Saritin Rizzuto, Joan Lanzillo-Hahesy, and Michelle Perez who have not only worked in our city but have contributed so much to our residents through their service in local organizations.
Chelsea Collaborative executive director Gladys Vega, whose efforts were recognized Sunday by the National Football League, had the honor of introducing Elaine prior to the impressive installation ceremony.
Monge is a branch manager at Metro Credit Union and has worked diligently for the betterment of Chelsea people’s lives through her involvement in the Kiwanis Club of Chelsea.
We believe that Elaine is the first woman of Latino descent to lead the Kiwanis Club of Chelsea and that’s an accomplishment in which to take pride.
Elaine knows that she has big shoes to fill as president of the club. Paul Swart, one of Elaine’s colleagues at Metro Credit Union, did an outstanding job as president, and we feel that Elaine will carry on the tradition of excellence set by Paul and others who have served in the top leadership position.
