Katie Kuettel was nominated by the Junior League of Duluth. Katie has been a member of this organization since 1979 and has been the chair of the Trees Committee for the Festival of Trees since 2005. Her creative talent is evident by the trees she decorates year after year. Each tree has a theme. Christmas can be found at her house throughout the year.
Katie has been a past president, vice president of finances, trasurer and chair of fundraisers for the Junior League of Duluth.
She has been on the Duluth North Shore Sanitary District Board of Mangers for four years and served as secretary for two years.
Other volunteer activities include being at Congdon Park Elementary School for nine years, East High School for six years, the Food Shelf for five years, John Duss Memorial Conservatory for 11 years, and UMD Alumni Association for five years where she served as the president for two of those years.
Anyone who knows Katie, a jewel, a real keeper. Brenda Beard, president of Junior League spoke highly on her behalf.
