Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her final year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. (he keeps me on my toes!) I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 18 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

I always look forward to the Empty Bowl Event!  While I know it's designed to help fund the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, I can't help but feel that Spring is that much closer to reality.  I also always enjoy adding another "Empty Bowl" pottery piece to my collection and the soup at the event is unique and delicious.  They are already preparing for The Empty Bowl Event 2015!
