Lumin Oberholtzer has been named the June recipient of the Community Restorium Ray Olson “We Care” Employee of the Month award.

She was selected for the award by the residents she serves with a sunny smile and unfailingly polite manner, always working hard and seldom overlooking the minute details that make the difference between good and great service.

For earning the recognition, Lumin received $50 from the Friends of the Restorium, who host the award, a commemorative plaque from the Restorium Resident’s Council, a $30 gift certificate to the Springs Restaurant from the Kootenai River Inn and beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers from BeeHaven Flower Farm, 2431 Moon Shadow Road, Bonners Ferry.

Ray Stanley Olson and his wife, Hazel, were long-time residents of the Community Restorium, where they found a home filled with loving, caring people. He stayed on after she passed, remaining active, planting the garden that produced fresh vegetables for the kitchen and beautiful flowers for residents and staff alike to enjoy.

Before his passing January 23, 2016, he established the “We Care” award to recognize the wonderful staff members who contribute so much to making the Community Restorium such a warm and welcoming home.
