Award Winners Recognized
Congratulations to Charlie Oltman (left) who received the 2018 Shoreview Citizen of the Year Award from Mayor Sandy Martin and the City Council at the annual Volunteer Appreciation event held on November 15. In addition to serving on the Parks & Recreation Commission since 2005, Charlie is a member of the Shoreview Community Foundation Advisory Board and Rotary Club. He has served on a number of different organizations in the past. Pastor Renee Patterson from Shepherd of the Hills said it best in her supporting nomination “Charlie is always willing to help, participate, and support efforts that make our community a better place for everyone. His concern for ‘the other’ seems to be a central and guiding principle for how he lives his life. He is simply a good person and model citizen that can/should serve as an example for us all.”
Mayor Sandy Martin and the Human Rights Commission also presented Molly Kalthoff (right) with the 2018 Caring Youth Award. As a sophomore at Totino Grace, Molly is involved in several organizations including tennis, student council, choir and her church. In between these activities, Molly can be found at the Ramsey County Library - Shoreview, where she started volunteering as a 12-year-old. Molly has become a fixture at the Library, volunteering at story time, special events, and anywhere else help is needed.
