Resident of the Year 2015
Bixby Knolls Towers
Long Beach, CA
Marjorie Grommé has been an active resident at Bixby Knolls Towers (BKT) for more than 10 years.
“The qualities that drew me to Marjorie, immediately, were her friendliness to me as a newcomer, her sense of humor and, later on, her compassion and devotion to making the Bixby Knolls Towers a great place to live,” states Jackie Grover.
She has served on the BKT Resident Association in numerous positions, twice as President.
She started an “Arm Chair” travel club that viewed videos twice monthly (that she purchased at her own expense) and was attended by many who lived in the community. She is a founding member of BKT’s Project HANDS group which contributes items to local charities, military who are serving overseas and patients at the Long Beach VA Hospital.
She can be seen working in BKT’s rose gardens and provides silk flower arrangements for the common areas on each of the community’s 13 floors.
Her many volunteer activities have enhanced the lives of those living at BKT and in the surrounding Signal Hill and Long Beach communities.
“Marjorie is one of the most outgoing, service-oriented individuals that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with,” states Fred Knirk, President of BKT’s Residents’ Association.
RHF is pleased to present Marjorie Grommé with the 2015 Resident of the Year Award.
