Kathy Kremer has owned my home on Devils Lake for 17 years and worked in the local hospital for much of that time. She was born and raised in Grant County. She has a great passion for our State and especially Devils Lake. She feels it is very important to keep the lake open to all for their enjoyment.
Last summer, she volunteered for the Devils Lake Water Improvement District (DLWID) Save Our Shoreline Committee. She has been performing water quality testing two days a week with other committee members, helping to ensure that the water was safe for all.
Her involvement with the SOS committee has inspired her to increase her participation in the District activities.
