After 30 years reaping the benefits of the Glendale YMCA, Bill Hughes has started giving back. Swimming six days a week at the YMCA is what keeps him in shape, but now he sticks around two days a week to volunteer at the front desk. When members come to use the facility, he checks them in to the building and answers questions about the YMCA's services. He also points them in the direction they need to go. "I enjoy it," Hughes said. "If I didn't, I wouldn't be doing it. It gives me something to do. If I wasn't doing something, I would go crazy."

Sid Gordon's mother, Rosaline, worked at Charles B. Behrens Memorial Hospital when he was young. Now he has become curious about the hospital, which was the precursor to Verdugo Hills Hospital. "My mother was a nurse and she always talked about work, but I was a kid then and didn't pay attention," said Gordon, who was a student at Clark Junior High School at the time. "She worked there after we came to California in 1960," he said. "We lived in La Crescenta, and she drove down to the hospital every day. My sister Randi was born there in 1962."
