Volunteer Highlight

Brajendra Singh

Volunteer Brajendra SinghBrajendra Singh volunteers at the Sy Graff Fitness Center three days a week, on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays. A certified fitness trainer, he is the team leader for Fitness Center volunteers, helping train them on how to operate the equipment and supervise the members using it.

Brajendra came to the Senior Center via India, Utah, and Louisiana. Born and raised in Northern India, he studied Mechanical Engineering there, earning a bachelor’s degree. He came to the United States in 1970 to attend Utah State University, receiving his Masters in Mechanical Engineering there, and staying to work for chemical and aerospace company Thiokol based in Utah. In 1973, he was transferred to Thiokol’s Louisiana division, and added an MBA from Louisiana State University to his resume.

When he retired in 1998, Brajendra moved to Altadena. He joined the Pasadena Senior Center, and was soon volunteering at the Fitness Center. Never a person to do things by halves, Brajendra took it upon himself to become certified as a fitness trainer so he could be a better volunteer. For nearly two decades now, he has shared his knowledge, time, and warm smile with the members who use the Fitness Center, earning the respect of members and staff alike. In addition to volunteering, Brajendra enjoys travel and visits family and friends in India and across the United States.

DEBBIE WEATHERWAX

Volunteer Debbie WeatherwaxAlways calm, always smiling, and always ready with a sense of humor, Deborah Ann Weatherwax has been one of the Pasadena Senior Center’s most active volunteers for over 20 years.

Debbie, now 81, retired in the 1980s after 34 years in banking. She first started coming to PSC in the 1990s, drawn by the pool tables. She still plays pool, and has won multiple gold medals in Billiards over the years at the Pasadena Senior Games hosted by the Senior Center.

It wasn’t very long after discovering the Pasadena Senior Center that Debbie started volunteering in the kitchen. She then met Cynthia Rosedale, the late Special Events Director. Like so many volunteers, to meet Cynthia was to get involved in volunteering for myriad events, and Debbie was willingly pulled into volunteering for Concerts in the Park, the Conference on Healthy Aging, Pasadena Senior Games, holiday parties, and other events. Debbie continues to volunteer at most PSC events, as well as regularly volunteering two days a week for the Center’s hot lunch program.

An avid reader, as well as pool player, Debbie’s other hobby is traveling. She takes vacation time from her busy volunteer schedule to go on cruises, but somehow still manages to be at almost every major Senior Center event. A true part of the Pasadena Senior Center team, she embodies PSC’s theme of #AgeWell!
