Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick announces that Town of Tonawanda resident Ron Hoeltke has been named the April 2014 Citizen of the Month in recognition of his service to local youth sports. Hoeltke, a longtime supporter of the Tonawanda American Little League (TALL), was presented a proclamation during the Legislature’s April 10, 2014 session.

 

“Over the years I have witnessed first-hand Ron's passion for making the joy of sports accessible to children of all abilities.  Ron's love of baseball, particularly the Yankees, is surpassed only by his love of children.  The Tonawandas are a far better place to live and raise a family because of Ron's dedication,” said Legislator Hardwick.

 

Joined by his wife Maggie and children, Jeremy and Kelly, Hoeltke’s dedication to his community was applauded by the Legislature. He has two additional children, Todd and Bobby, who were unable to be present for the recognition.

 

Hoeltke has been very involved with TALL for many years. In addition to coaching numerous players, he served on the board of directors where he was president for several years. He also helped form the Challenger Baseball Division in 1990 to help players with mental and physical disabilities participate in the game he loves. The division has since grown tremendously. Renamed, “Challenged Athletics Participating in Sports,” the program is operated at the Boys and Girls Club in the City of Tonawanda and includes soccer, basketball and floor hockey, and ensures all athletes enjoy participating.

 

A past Boys and Girls Club Volunteer of the Year honoree, Hoeltke will also be added to the Franklin Street Boys and Girls Club Wall of Fame.
