Granton Rotary picks Nitschkes as 2018 honored citizens
The Granton Rotary recently announced Roger and Jean Nitschke as the honored citizens for the 2018 Granton Fall Festival. As part of the honor, they will lead the Fall Festival parade on Sept. 9.
The Nitschkes are long-time residents of Granton, and were selected by the Granton Rotary for the honor because of their commitment to the community.
“We want to acknowledge community members that make an impact on the community,” the Rotary said in a statement.
Roger was born in Granton and was a 1971 graduate of Granton High School. After graduation, he worked part-time at Spaete’s Store and received a general education degree at UW-Marshfield. He later moved up to full-time at Spaete’s and eventually founded Roger’s Grocery Store in 1992 following Spaete’s move away from the grocery business. He has been in business ever since, and celebrated the store’s 25th anniversary last fall.
