Boulder City Senior Center
The Boulder City Senior Center was formally organized in 1983 as a non-profit corporation to serve the senior population of Boulder City with the support and assistance of the City of Boulder City. The legend has it that the activities which evolved the Senior Center actually began in the 1960s.

An uncomplicated collection of activities operated from kitchen tables and car seats has become a serious undertaking serving more than 617 members to date from the Boulder City area.

The senior population of Boulder City is an active, complex segment of the society that makes up this community. Yes, the seniors have needs which must be addressed but included in those needs is the necessity to continue being an active, contributing part of the community.

The Senior Center provides a meal that meets one third of the daily nutritional requirements for a senior. And since the kitchen is open, they prepare and deliver meals for people who are homebound.

Yet, the Senior Center is more than a place to eat. It is a place where people gather in the early morning to have coffee together. Others come in to read the morning newspaper or to watch a program on the BIG screen television.

It doesn’t stop there. There are functions performed which actually serve the community. Not to mention the crafts done at the Senior Center. Recently, one of the crafts groups, the woodcarvers, had their work displayed at the Library on Adams Street.

There are activities focused on education with respect to programs and benefits available to seniors; and programs dealing with health subjects and issues.

There is a library in the Senior Center which features books (large print) and books on tape. Movies on video tape and DVD are also waiting for you to borrow them. Multiple forms of entertainment are still presented, sometimes at the lunch hour and sometimes after hours.

So as you can see, The Senior Center of Boulder City is much more than the name implies. Yes, it is a “center”. But a center for a wealth of activities and entertainment designed to keep people active, independent and healthy. Okay, the food is good too!
