2015 marks 50 years that thousands of Orange County seniors have called not-for-profit Rowntree Gardens Senior Living, an inviting, compassionate and caring home. October was also the month that Rowntree Gardens completed its biggest structural improvement/reinvestment since its founding. The organization marked these very special occasions with a major event – the “Decades of Devotion” celebration.

The invitation-only celebration was hosted by popular radio personality Tim Conway Jr., who introduced honorees, and legendary baseball icon Steve Garvey. Both gentlemen met with and sign autographs for guests.

“Staff commitment, compassion and sincere caring are hallmarks of Rowntree Gardens,” stated CEO and Board Chair Randy Brown. “The average tenure of our staff is 13 years. Most of our community members consider our folks extended family and friends.”

The Decades of Devotion Celebration happened October 1 from 12-3 p.m., at Rowntree Gardens at 12151 Dale Street, in Stanton.
