If there is a project that needs attention in Lynwood, there’s a good chance that Paulette Bradley is the first person to volunteer.
Ms. Bradley has lived in Lynwood for four decades and has spent much of that time making the city a better place. She had planned to become a Library Reader in her retirement. But after reading a Lynwood N’ Perspective she decided to attend her first city council meeting and she hasn’t stopped her involvement with the city and community since then.
“Somebody has to be involved and show some dedication, for the good of the whole,” said Ms. Bradley.
She is on the Lynwood School District Bond Board, the City of Lynwood Personnel Board and the Citizen Oversight Committee. At St. Francis Medical Center, she sits on the Bio-Ethics Committee, has been nominated to the Patient and Family Advocacy Group, was instrumental in the creation of the “Do Not Die Alone” program (debuting next month) and helped create the “How to be a Patient” booklet.
You may remember her as the Queen Mother of the Regal Red Hatters group at the Parks and Recreation Department. Or you may know her from the Travel Club (she served as president) or the garden club.
And in her spare time, you can catch her at the Senior Center where she takes yoga and exercise classes. She even volunteers as the Lead Escort for the Senior Excursions.
“I find it very joyous to be involved,” she explained. “I get disappointed sometimes when I’m not successful at convincing people to have fun.”
