Gaby Salazar, an active volunteer at the park’s Senior Center, helped start the park’s aerobics program more than two decades ago, at one time serving as one of the instructors. She is no longer an instructor, but still takes part in aerobics classes several days a week, according to Chris Mojica, another long time park volunteer.

“Gaby has helped out in a lot of areas, always giving her time to make sure the seniors have good and successful programs,” Mojica told EGP.

“She [to this day] continues to volunteer for the Friends activities, luncheons and fundraisers,” Anthony Montanez, a member of the park’s staff told EGP via email.

Salazar was presented with a certificate recognizing her more than three decades as a park volunteer.
