Village of Hennepin honors community partner

HENNEPIN — Family and friends gathered recently in Hennepin for the dedication of a tree, in memory of lifelong resident Kathleen “Kathy” Spratt.

The maple tree was placed in front of the village hall in recognition of the many years that Kathy served the village residents, whether as a trustee or as a member of several committees over the years. Even after Kathy retired from official duties she remained a “go-to” person for people with questions and concerns about village matters.

Kathy was a great friend to young and old alike and a “second mom” to many of those friends. The tree was donated by Kathy’s family and the Kevin and Jennifer Coleman family.
