Big Bear Lake, CA, November 8, 2012 – Bear Valley Community Hospital held a celebration this morning to honor John Grandi. The hospital dedicated a bronze plaque at the flag pole at the front entrance of the hospital. They had previously planned a tree dedication but discovered that they were unable to place the oversized plaque at the base of the tree so opted for the flag pole dedication instead. The ceremony commemorated the dedication, passion and countless hours John Grandi gave volunteering to improve and support the hospital. The celebration for John concluded with cupcakes and refreshments to celebrate his wife, Julie Grandi, whose birthday is today.
