Kathy Rankin, Maintenance Foreman 

I was hired in April of 1986 under the Director Peter Brewitt. I was born and raised here in beautiful Wolfeboro. Over the years I managed to build a nice log home on my grandfather’s property deep in the woods. I love this job because of the full four seasons that our department deals with. I enjoy keeping the grounds and our facilities looking top-notch. I have been certified through “STAR” as an “Ice Technician”, completing all 5 courses. We have a great staff and I look forward to many more fun years with Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation.
